Keys and Chords (translated by Google)
Minneapolis became musically known in the 1980s as a center for Rhythm and Blues when the versatile Prince grew to fame. But the twin-city region has long been known for the descendence of remarkable modern folk music, gospel, blues, alto and jazz artists. Dee Miller grew up in Saint Paul, Minnesota. Sang with her favorite vocalists and was a member of many local bands that received the title "The Duchess of The Blues". In 2004 she formed her own band. In the fall of 2018, the Minnesota Blues Society included Dee Miller in the Minnesota Blues Hall of Fame in the "Performer" category. Together with the rhythm section of Eric Meyer (bass, vocals), Mike DuBois (drums) and keyboard virtuoso Jesse Mueller, Dee Miller went to the Villa Studio and recorded ten unsurpassed songs. The razor-sharp original and creative covers reflect the diversity in the band's repertoire. The track 'Hot & Sweaty' can open the dance and is imitated in the funky 'Strongest Weakness' and the ballad' Take It To The Limit, originally from The Eagles. In the rocking title track, Craig Clarck can take care of the vocal parts and the boogie woogie track 'Back In The Saddle' comes popping through our woofer. The song 'Last Two Dollars' is a handsome soul alteration by Clarck's vocals. Harp devil artist Steve "Boom Boom" Vonderharr is allowed to blow the song 'I Sing The Blues' and Toby Marshall comes down with his Hammond B3 on the beautiful cover ballad of 'Midnight In Harlem', a song by Derek Trucks and Mike Mattison. Albert Collins' 'Black Cat Bone' gets funky arrangements and flows straight to the obscene blues song 'Steppin'. Delicious disc! ~Philip Verhaege (4 ½) http://www.keysandchords.com/album-review-blog/dee-miller-band-leopard-print-dress
Dee Miller Band “Leopard Print Dress”
Now what a performer Ms. Miler is! Fearsome vocals, a blistering soulful approach to the songs and a take no hold approach to letting the world know, she is a serious performer. And the band behind her... Just brilliant ! A powerful ensemble that create their own intensity and class with some mesmerizing lead guitar solos, powerful and funky rhythm section and jumping keyboards . It’s a great album and demonstrates what a powerful force they are in the Midwest blues scene. ~ David Roman. "The Mystery Train" www.2ssr.com.au
