Larry Miller www.larrymiller.co.uk is fast becoming the hottest new act of 2010. He is putting the finishing touches to his new album Unfinished Business, which will be followed by a European tour. Larry is lead guitarist and vocals, Simon Baker on drums. Simon played on Larry's first album Right Chaps but had to leave because he was starting a family, and the band was touring heavily. Re joining the band, Simon feels the title of the album Unfinished Business perfectly sums up how he feels.Derek White on bass. Derek is a very experienced musician who keeps his cool under pressure and has just recently joined the band. Wih his energetic and eclectic style, Larry brings a new dimension of showmanship to his performances. After picking up his brother’s guitar and writing his first song, he felt his future lay in Rock music. To begin with Larry decided to concentrate on Blues Rock: “For me, my moment of inspiration was seeing Rory Gallagher live, I had never experienced anything like it. So loud, so gloriously on the edge of total mayhem, yet Rory was still totally in control. How could I NOT do this too! Like Rory I’d work under my own name, with a band. I’d do all the writing, singing, producing, playing and leading.”
Very quickly, Larry found his own style, and has been constantly refining it. Preparing to release his new album: “Unfinished Business”, Larry is optimistic about the future: “I am beginning to move away from pure Blues Rock into a heavier Rock style, and the new album reflects this move, its going to be a really exciting album!”
Today, Larry Miller is on a par with “The White Stripes”, “The Black Crowes”, and The Raconteurs. He has a large following right across the UK and Europe, and enjoys touring. He is currently preparing a UK/ European tour to promote his latest album.
Larry’s status as a legendary Guitar slinger is no accident. The recipient of an amazing seven standing ovations (and a declaration of a “National Larry Miller day”) at the Cambridge Rock festival, His life is his music - however, he doesn’t take himself too seriously, he is often seen laughing and joking with his audience during a set, and enjoys interacting with them. He is happy to get in amongst his fans and chat with them after a gig, and is universally known amongst his fans as “the nicest man in Rock and Roll”.
"Holding his captive audience in a packed out venue hypnotising them into a trance with his guitar skills. A true master at work who many have said fit's a void left by the great late Rory Gallagher. Much respected within the music industry by fellow artists who have nothing but good words to say about him and his guitar playing ability"
