A singer and songwriter whose music mixes up Lone Star country, rootsy rock & roll, and songs dealing with various aspects of his Texas heritage, Dub Miller was one of the early figures on what became the regional Red Dirt music scene. Miller was born and raised in Pontotoc, Texas, where he got his start in music during his high-school days, playing drums in a fledgling heavy metal band. After graduating from high school, Miller set out to become a radio disc jockey, but he quickly found that radio was not the business he imagined it to be, and enrolled at Texas A&M, where he played in the drum corps. Miller also formed a band that enjoyed some local success, but the group’s attempts at finding fame out of town didn’t take, and he resumed his academic career at South Plains College in Levelland, Texas. While at South Plains, Miller made friends with some local musicians who would in time evolve into the Highway 6 Band, who would be Miller’s backing band as he barnstormed Texas clubs, bars, and dance halls in search of an audience. The band was active from 1997 to 2004; during that time, they played hundreds of shows while Miller cut two albums, 2001’s American Troubadour and 2002’s Post Country, as well as the song “Fightin’ Texas Aggie,” a tongue-in-cheek number about a wayward college boy that became an audience favorite and a local hit. After tiring of life on the road, Miller got married and enrolled in law school; after two years, he left school and took a job in concert and festival promotion. However, the music bug never entirely left him, and by 2015 he was playing out again with a new band, 11 Bones, and released an archival collection of concert tapes from 2002, Lost/Live: The Lost Live Recordings. In 2016, Miller released his long-awaited third album, The Midnight Ambassador. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
