Introducing: Nick Miller’s Song of the Week

nick-miller-song-of-week.jpg

First of all, I would like to say thanks for the 3 people who have donated money this past week (even though one of them is my girlfriend and another is former ATG writer Ryan). We just purchased a new hosting service, but are still looking for donations as the server was quite expensive and we have to re-register the domain http://www.all-things-go.com. A more awesome thank you to the donators will be coming tommorow. But now, on to the meat of the post.

Nicholas Charles Miller is a 19-year-old prodigy and freshman at the University of Wisconsin. He and his guitars are inseperable, and he is a garageband genius. I first came to know Nick when I walked past his room and heard a hip-hop remix of “I Dream of Jeanie”, which Nick has masterfully crafted. We slowly discovered that we have fairly similar tastes in music, and ever since we have had some deep conversations about different bands and music styles.

Nick’s has a very versatile style, as his favorite bands are Radiohead, Bill Withers, Jeff Buckley, Feist, and Nina Simone. He plays more fun, upbeat music with his band The Maxwells, but his true talent shines in his more subdued, soft acoustic work. He has a knack for creating unique melodies and thoughtful lyrics, in addition to being a quality cover artist.

Over the next few months, we will be posting “Nick Miller’s Song of the Week”, which will be either a cover or a Nick original. Let us know how you feel about the music, as Nick is very interested in getting some feedback from a larger audience (his myspace doesn’t quite get the exposure ATG does). Nick kicks things off with a cover of Andrew Bird’s masterpiece, “Masterfade”. Enjoy, and get ready world, ’cause Nick Miller has arrived.

MP3: Nick Miller – “Masterfade (Andrew Bird Cover)”

Love,
Zack

    Nasel vocals, guy should support from his diaphram… It is pretty much the same as Bird’s, it is kind of hard to cover Bird coz he adds character that is hard to match, like covering Johnny Cash or Neil Young. It is nice to hear the song the song though. Maybe reverb to the vocals?
