A band with heart is a rare thing.

Jaik Miller Band (JMB) started a couple years ago as something completely different. Trusty (the original band name) played their first show at the NOLA jazz and heritage festival in the spring of 2005. A guitar and bass duo with vocals (Jaik was in NYC's genre-defying band (once dubbed "wusscore" by rock journalism legend Neil Strauss) Xanax 25 and has written with Warren Haynes, Barry Reynolds, Oliver Ray [Patti Smith Band], Elijah Blue Allman and Sabina Sciubba [Brazilian Girls]; original bassist was Optical Delusion founder Marco Ferrero),they did a short demo with Playmakers' Matt Stein (featuring guest appearances by Jonah Smith, JP Bowersock, Meghan Andrews and RAQ's Todd Stoops) and were quickly welcomed into the jamband scene sweeping North America, appearing at such notable events as the family dog tribute to Chet Helms in Golden Gate Park and AT40 (a part of the 2005 Vegoose festival in Las Vegas Nevada).

Trusty appeared on the USA network's Monk program in summer of 2006 and was granted a sponsorship from New England's award winning Stone Coast Brewing Company, becoming the poster children for the SCBC's 420IPA. Upon going national, they learned of another band called Trusty and wore the short-lived moniker "Yama Bandit", playing at the world famous CBGB in the final weeks before its closing.

In the winter of 2006-07 the boys went to the Carriage House Studios in Stamford CT (the spot where records such as PIXIES' "Doolittle" and Deftones' "Saturday Night Wrist" were made, as well as countless hit records by the likes of Diana Ross and Meatloaf among many other notable artists) with JP Bowersock (Strokes' "guru" and Ryan Adams guitarist) in the producer chair. the album was recorded in an ol'skool rock 'n' roll style; many of the songs were captured live in the studio; "furthermore" was actually recorded in mono, giving it an authentically gritty feel. the album is laced with references to the bands' influences; from the pop-punk energy of "social disease" and "anything you don't want" to the psychedelic twang of "Orange Sunshine" which sounds like a lost track from the Grateful Dead's "American Beauty" sessions; from the Marley-esque "keep movin" to the straight ahead rock and roll of "4447" and "another good look." The album's closer, a stripped-down take on their live powerhouse "there's a whole world on fire" has recently been included on "The Dream Is Valid"; Zaadz/Gaia Visionary Music compilation volume one. of JMB, Bowersock has said, "The band is talented, tight and able to walk the line between a rock band and a jam band in a way few are able to." the album was mixed by super genius android (and Folk City alum) Mark Dann and is peppered with performances by Dann (upright bass) Uncle Earl's Kristen Andreassen (harmonica) and the vocals of rising star Meghan Andrews. After the final name change and a personnel change (bass duties are now assumed by Walkinbird anlum and long term Milller collaborator Craig Robison) Jaik (gtr/vox), Max Tucker (drums/vox), Garth MacAleavey (gtr/keys/vox) and new guitarist JP Bowersock were ready to take the world by storm.

On 8 May 2007 JAIK MILLER BAND debuted at the lower east side's famed LUV 24/7; attracting totally unhip people and cool folks as well; celebs from Butch Patrick (tv's Eddie Munster) and Cindy Williams (American Grafitti;Laverne and Shirley) to Randy Jones (Village People's "Cowboy") are fans.

JMB has jammed with menbers of Robert Randolph's Family Band, AC/DC, Uncle Earl, Los Amigos Invisibles, RAQ and The Mammals. They have done shows with Fishbone, Tim Reynolds, Suzanne Vega, Murphy's Law, Richie Havens, Adam Dietch Project, DJ Logic, The Commitments, Eenor, Jazz Mandolin Project, David Gans, Eric McFadden Trio, Bassnectar, The Mutaytor, Ike Willis' Project/Object, Donna Jean, Easy Dub Allstars, New Riders of the Purple Sage, Vinyl, Bernie Worrell, Novillero, DJs Haj and Mikio (founders of Sub Swara and Freek Factory) Bomb Squad and Strangefolk to name a few...

This band is awesome.
The songs ring true.
JMB is a band with heart.
