Joey's Song 2013 Benefit Concert
Joey’s Song is a series of compilation CDs featuring rare and unreleased music from nationally and internationally known, award winning artists. The CDs are named in honor of Joey Gomoll, who passed away in March of 2010.
Rhett Miller is the front man and main songwriter of the hard-charging rock 'n' roll quartet the Old 97's, as well as an accomplished solo artist. In addition to his nine studio albums with the 97's (most recently The Grand Theatre Volume One and The Grand Theatre Vol. 2 in 2011), he has released four solo albums; 1989's Mythologies, 2002's The Instigator, 2006's The Believer, and 2009's Rhett Miller. Miller is set to release his first live covers album, The Interpreter Live at Largo, on November 22, 2011 on his own recently established label Maximum Sunshine Records.
In addition to his music being featured in countless films and television shows, Rhett has appeared in an episode of the NBC hit series 30 Rock and the Old 97's were prominently featured in the Vince Vaughn/Jennifer Aniston romantic comedy, The Break Up. Primarily known for his songwriting and awe-inspiring live performances, Rhett is also a critically-acclaimed author whose work has appeared in several books and such well-known periodicals as Rolling Stone, McSweeney's, and The Atlantic.
Born in Texas, Rhett currently resides in New York's Hudson River Valley with his wife and two children. He is hard at work on a new solo album currently slated for a 2012 release.
Miles Nielsen & The Rusted Hearts
For Miles Nielsen, every experience, every conversation, every dream is a potential song in the making. Miles’s songs breathe with a sense of yearning and ownership. You want to have another record, another song- you want to hit rewind…you want to know more about this world created in song by Mr. Nielsen A captivating wordsmith, instrumentalist, and creator of hooks- rare indeed, but present in the person of Miles Nielsen. There are very few people writing music that makes you immediately wish there was “more”- another song to make you turn up the volume , another nugget of melody or lyric that you can find some part of to make your own. Gifts like Miles’s come along very infrequently, and one can only hope that his ability to be so “in the now” -listening for the songs spoken in the everyday world, will continue to grow. Then maybe that “more” we are looking for, will be given to us all… in the songs of Miles Nielsen.
