Best-known as a member of indie band Whitney – Miller flexes his jazz chops on this new project.
The Resavoir 5-member band includes Miller on trumpet, Akenya Seymour on keyboards & vocals, Irvin Pierce on tenor sax, Lane Beckstrom on bass, Peter Manheim on drums & percussion, and Jeremy Cunningham on drums.
Their first single, ‘Escalator’, arrives via International Anthem and features a demo version of the track recorded and produced by Miller in 2014; and an uncut live version recorded last June at the labels Chicago HQ, Co-Prosperity Sphere.
On ‘Escalator’ the band strikes the perfect balance between the group’s sound explorations and ear-catching hooks. It’s a top-notch first effort by a band that is worth paying close attention to.
