Scott has been performing on and off for decades. His first
performances were with the legendary lost band from Aptos "Harold
Honey and the Cabbage Heads." Scott was a cabbage head. Various outfits
came and went, playing a variety of music, as people did back then. And
an "off" period for 27 years, while Scott had something of a life, with
college, jobs, and children. Several years ago, Scott, in a move
typical of geezers such as himself, got back on stage with various
blues bands, with which he continues to perform. More recently, Scott
has been writing songs and playing to quieter audiences. He has
recently released his first CD, "Songs of Love and Porkchops."
Since Scott has been playing guitar for so long, he has figured out how
to get around a fretboard pretty well. His guitar playing is influenced
many musicians, including Charlie Christian, Benny Goodman, Charlie
Parker, BB King, Eldon Shamblin, Frank Zappa, Sun Ra, Lonnie
Johnson, and John Lee Hooker. His singing is mostly influenced by
old-school R&B shouters and crooners such as Wynonie Harris, Big
Turner, and Dinah Washington.
a Scott T.
Miller performance, you can expect a lot of really
whippie guitar playing, expressive and somewhat wacked-out singing,
some story telling and general rambling, and a
lot of mostly humorous songs. A
short sampling of
song titles should set your expectations properly: Hello Mrs. Porkchop,
Wash Your Face, Keep Away From That Porkchop, Keep Your Nose On Your
Face, and Porkchops On My Mind.
