Russell Miller is a unequalled Bluesman, combining captivating lyrics and an unmistakable sound in his guitar playing. This new release is a mixture of previously released originals, remastered and a few new tunes that demonstrate Russell's range, as a songwriter, vocalist and guitar player.
"He doesn't sound like anyone else" is a comment often heard from Central Illinois blues fans. "Almost every other guitar player sounds like..." they continue. That is a true compliment to a Bluesman, and after you give this disc a spin, you'll agree. A fine mix of original tunes that are definitely Blues, but run through the chord changes a little differently, making it a more stimulating rhythm line to compliment the well crafted songs. A real Tunesmith at work!!
Russell wields his Telecaster like the pro he has become over the last 30 years of playing. He can emulate many different guitar players, but prefers to present his personal arsnel of licks with a mix of ferocity, tenacity and delicate, soulful touch.
Bruce Iglauer of Alligator Records says, "(his) guitar playing is fluid and confident" and "6V6 is a rare blues band that actually plays the blues."
Peter "Blewzzman" Lauro noted, "These guys know the blues as well as they know their tubes."
Brian Wilkinson's review said, "Russell plays tasteful, fluid, notes well-placed, blues guitar, playing within the context of the combo, rather than using the guitar to dominate it."
The Blues has a strong history in Central Illinois and 6V6 represents the continuation of that tradition as competitors in the International Blues Challenge in Memphis in 2003 & 2005. Big City Rhythm & Blues Magazine featured Russell and son Aaron, 6V6 bass player, in their Family Reunion eition.
