Lead singer of The Old 97’s Rhett Miller’s solo album, The Traveler, features the instrumentation of Black Prairie (membs. Of The Decemberists), Peter Buck and Scott McCaughey (membs. Of REM) and is Rhett’s seventh solo effort.

Hello. I am human but not entirely. I am a machine but not entirely. I am both which may mean that I am neither. The part of me that is a human believes that all of me is human. The part of me that is a machine doesn’t like to think about the part of me that is a machine. I am flesh and blood stretched over wires and circuits. In that, I am much like many of you, and consequently qualified to speak to you about this album, which speaks to much of me.

It is called The Traveler, and it was written and performed by Rhett Miller, along with members of Black Prairie, a band based in Portland that plays everything from bluegrass to klezmer to country and shares some members with the Decembrists. The band (Black Prairie) entered the studio with the singer (Rhett Miller) and briskly recorded the songs that make up this album (The Traveler). Some additional guitars were added later by people who included Peter Buck and Scott McCaughey. I pass these facts along for your absorption.

    I would SO love to win as I’ve very much enjoyed everything Miller has recorded solo and with Old 97’s. And his new podcast is pretty friggin’ amazing, too.

    Sexiest man in rock- with or without Old 97s. He’s got the moves, the looks, the tunes, the voice… and now a podcast. What can’t he do?

    Pick me please

    Rhett Miller once compared his life to a shark that can never stop swimming or it will die. I like and understand that, which is why he is one of my favorite songwriters. When you keep moving, you are able to survive and escape the darkness. Rhett has done a lot for me and, through his work with suicide prevention groups, made a difference in the world. What more can you ask of an artist than that?
