Scott Miller, a Staunton native, comes to the Wayne Theatre/Ross Performing Arts Center. Miller recently returned to the area to help on the family farm. Miller’s writing is informed and fueled by his connection to his family land in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley. He truly is the sum of his ‘Southern place’: rural imagery, sin and salvation, defiant, rebellious, pathos and humor. He is currently working on new music, stepping up his touring with the Commonwealth’s Ladies Auxiliary (Rayna Gellert and Bryn Davies) and finding a way to merge his life on the farm with his songwriting.
Miller came into the national spotlight in the mid-90s as leader of the Knoxville-based band The V-Roys. After releasing two critically acclaimed albums, The V-Roys disbanded. Miller then signed to Sugar Hill Records and released several highly praised recording with his new backing band, The Commonwealth. Most recently he has recorded and released music through his own F.A.Y. Records label. The last few years have seen big changes for Miller. He left his long-time adopted home city of Knoxville, Tenn., to return to the family farm to tend a herd of beef cattle, look after his elderly parents and set up a new touring base from his hometown, Staunton.
