Singing Back-up for Buddy Miller

Do you know Buddy Miller's music?

This heart-felt song above was written by his wife Julie Miller. Julie Miller's writing cuts to the heart and soul of a matter, separating sinew and bone.

One of my favorite songs Buddy sings is "Worry Too Much. Click here to watch a video of "Worry Too Much". It's such a great song, lyrics written by Mark Heard.

I am a decent back-up singer. Since I quit my job which involved singing at least twice a week I am doing a lot of back-up singing in the car to the songs on Universal House of Prayer. I am sure that Buddy appreciates it ;-) Actually, if you go watch the video at the link above you will see Buddy Miller has some perfectly wonderful back-up singers. But it would be a joy and wonder to sing backup for real on this song.

Buddy Miller is a gritty alternative artist. I see that a lot of my favorite songs from the CD International House of Prayer are co-written with his wife Julie Miller or with other artists. Definitely a great songwriting duo. If you are still under the rock that I crawled from a couple of years ago, come on out, the music is fine.

You can buy Buddy and Julie Miller CDs here from the artists' site. I hope it means they make money so they can keep singing and writing.

Here's an interview with Buddy Miller that I found interesting reading.

What does this have to do with making paintings and folk art creations? I don't know, but I think I should make a painting listening to this CD.
