Feisty, funny singer/guitar-slinger Scott Miller is not a simple study. Raised on a cattle farm in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley, where he expects to return before too long, he writes songs full of rural imagery, and his trademark is the mule. But he also has a degree in Russian and Soviet Studies from William & Mary and can write a rock song with the best of them. "For Miller, the modus operandi is generally no-nonsense rootsy rock & roll, sometimes quieter and more reflective acoustic balladry, and almost always a way with words that few other Americana songwriters can match." - No Depression Born in Virginia and making his home in the musical hotbed of Charlottesville, Peyton Tochterman is a former sports journalist, has been a Cultural Ambassador for the United Stated Government in Afghanistan, has been hit by a train, had Kenny G.'s grand piano fall on his head, has helped cast bronze sculptures for renowned artist Cy Twombly, has traveled across America on Harleys with his dad and has gone to the far reaches of China to record monks in temples blowing really, really big horns. He was recently hired by Simon and Schuster to record the audio book Heroes Proved, written by New York Times Best Selling Author Oliver North. And, he is a cancer survivor. But through every step, at every breath, and in every sense, Peyton has been, is, and will always be a songwriter.
