Shelley Miller – February

February front cover

Chicago’s Shelley Miller has a new album out, the songs on the recording were written in a few weeks last year following a huge blizzard that hit Chicago in February from which the album takes it title, reflecting the time of year the album carries an essence of winter and kicks of with November and ends fourteen tracks later March meandering it’s way through the harshest of seasons and though the undercurrent errs toward the melancholic it’s interspersed with plenty of upbeat moments too, of the hope and expectation promised by the coming of the season of renewal. You know how some songs are all about the words, the message and some more about the feel and mood, intentional or otherwise this album balances that really well. Challenging her acoustic leanings on this her fourth solo release Miller plays electric guitar, piano, banjo, Hammond, harmonica and an assortment of other instruments on this her most eclectic offering so far, the album also features a guest vocal contributions from another Beat Surrender favourite Po’Girl Allison Russell.
