Synopsis

Amazon.com
Julie Miller's first secular album, Blue Pony, combines the exquisite Appalachiana of Gillian Welch with the whispery confessionalism of Lisa Loeb. Julie and her husband Buddy sing on each other's albums and work with the same pool of musicians. Together they have released two of the best country discs of the decade. As good as Buddy's album was, Julie's is even better. She has a high, small soprano that evokes the emotional transparency of a teenage girl, but she's been through the love wars enough times to recognize the moment "when the lie comes down like a kiss on the lips." A strain of spirituality runs through the album that hints at her background in Christian music, and like Sam Phillips, Julie makes her religious concerns so down-to-earth that it's empathetic, not preachy. --Geoffrey Himes

Quintessential American fusion........

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I don't have strong enough words to use in describing what a fantastic album this is.Julie Miller's "Blue Pony" covers the range of the roots of America's musical history, form Rock, Folk, Country and Celtic all the way to Blues.Give this a close listen folks. Rarely do we get to hear a recording that embodies so much mucical passion.Julie and her husband Buddy are a treasure trove in American Music, and, as such, too well kept of a secret.Buy 2, and prepare to want to give this album to everyone you care about!!"
Brilliant and Original

"Julie Miller, and her husband Buddy Miller are an incredible songwriting team. Julie's voice and her lyrics are powerful and profound. I, too am disappointed that this kind of music gets no airplay. It's a shame, because it's some of the most heartfelt, sincere, and original "traditional" style country music you will ever hear. Rapturous."

"This is a great album, in fact I can't seem to get it off my CD player. Beautiful song writing and great melody.The Millers in my view have not made a bad album. Julie has such a unique voice, both soft, but full of emotion and she is joined with a strong back-up band including Buddy.It is just too bad that this great music is drowned-out by all the garbage on top 40 stations which is a clear indication of the state of American taste. Buy this album!!!"
