“”The Miller Girl is Miller Gold.The album overall is a masterwork in terms of song craft, execution, and production value. Whether or not you consider yourself a fan of Bluegrass, Country, or Americana, this duo have crafted something that casts a very wide net in terms of mass appeal.” ” — Evan Morgan
Steve Hussey and Jake Eddy originally started working together in 2014. Steve hired Jake to record a few songs for Steve’s upcoming wedding. That went so well they continued working together recording a full length LP. The result, “The Miller Girl”, draws on their influences in the genre including Old Crow Medicine Show, the Avett Brothers and Jason Isbell.
Based out of Washington, West Virginia, they form a formidable duo. The album “The Miller Girl” explores themes of the transformational power of love and is dark, funny, and wistful by turns and features something that’s lost in a lot of modern music: innocence.
Jake is a West Virginia state flat picking champion and multi-instrumental virtuoso who has played with Bluegrass legend Melvin Goins’ band. He has also played with James King and shared the stage with Idletymes, Don Rigby, and Remington Ryde to name a few.
Steve is a well known regional songwriter best known in the region around West Virginia for his work with his eponymous Steve Hussey Band. A veteran performer, he has shared the stage with .38 special, Eddie Money and the Davisson Brothers to name a few while entertaining crowds at clubs and fairs and festivals all over the region.
“The Miller Girl” was released November 22, 2016 on their label Merf Records.
