In the winter of 1999, Dan Miller embarked on a journey that most musicians would only dream of. The hit ABC, and then MTV, TV show, "Making the Band" gave Dan and the guys in O-Town their start. Catching the ear of Clive Davis, one of the most respected names in the music business,
O-Town recorded two albums on the major label, J Records. After touring the world for four years, Dan had performed on four continents, in dozens of countries, for millions of fans, resulting in a Platinum selling debut album. Dan''s signature vocals were the driving force behind O-Town''s number one single, "All or Nothing."
Like most fresh, young artists, Dan yearned for more creative control over his passion, his music. Over the past two years, he has been holed up in the spare-bedroom studio of his home, honing his craft of songwriting. Struggling with the pressure of living up to expectations, Dan has pushed through seemingly endless mental blocks and a bad case of perfectionism.
The telling first track on the CD, "Alone," is an introspective, epic song reminiscent of the Beatles that opened up the flood gates enabling the rest of the EP to be written. Although not formally trained, this self-taught guitarist and pianist brings us musical arrangements that are uncontrived, pure, and from the heart. The piano proves to be a fresh new medium through which Dan pours out his experiences and thoughts through melody and lyric.
"Slower than a Gun" is an impressive solo debut that puts to rest any pre-conceived notions. This piano driven, playful romp of a rock record showcases the full depth of Dan''s talents. Enjoy.
