About Eleven Hundred Springs:
Listening to any effort from Eleven Hundred Springs, including latest Midway, is like having your cool uncle pull out his favorite albums. Matt Hillyer and crew have that old-school country sound down. When the band started up way back in 1998, some folks thought it was just guys imitating the sounds of Merle Haggard, George Jones and Hank Williams, but over the course of nine albums, Eleven Hundred Springs have evolved into a tight unit of true believers. Songs like “I’m a S.O.B. (When I’m S-O-B-E-R)” and “Hard Work Just Ain’t Working Anymore” are not imitative of the band’s influences. They are authoritative narratives of rural America.
Eleven Hundred Springs shows a commitment to the true soul of country music — what Steve Earle calls real music. While they may not look like your conventional country (Disney Channel / reality show, etc) act, the tradition and spirit that make up true Americana is easy to see. It’s all about honesty and lack of pretense.

About Tanner Miller:
Tanner Miller is a native Texan from Dallas . He transplanted into the Norman, Oklahoma music scene in 2010. He writes his own material and echoes the Americana genre in sound and content. His songs reflect true life situations and are essentially folkie short stories about bona fide people.
His guitar work is varied and professional and adds texture to the story lines and melodies. His voice is authentic and straight forward, lending to the combination of lyrics and music to draw the listener into the dramatic scenarios. Each composition is a complete universe unto itself.
Tanner draws from a cache of masters including John Prine, Guy Clark, and Robert Earl Keen, as well as bringing his unique perspective to the table. He uses melody, lyric and guitar to create a complete experience that honors the tradition of storytelling singer songwriters. His work is observational, entertaining, and authentic.
