"...veteran post-punk singer songwriter who's angular, sometimes bitingly beautiful
introspective songs have been described as Syd Barrett meets Ray Davies..."

ANN ARBOR OBSERVER 1996

May 23rd 2015 @ Trinosophes, Detroit


Alan Goldsmith, 
 Ann Arbor AGENDA,  March 1997
"... if there is any one greatest injustice on the local music scene, it’s the fact that Laurence Miller isn’t world famous by now. He's probably the only Ann Arbor rock genre guy who deserves to have a multi-record boxed set devoted to his work.  From his pioneering days in the original lineup of Destroy All Monsters, to his quirky but structured pop recordings with Nonfiction and Empty Set and on to his other-planet ravings over-the-edge days as Larynx Zillion's Novelty Shop, Miller has proven to be another one-of-a-kind performer of world-class talents and brains and is one of the singer songwriters in this town who can honestly be called a genius.  His musical vision is so complex, from pure pop to space music, and it all seems to tie into one grand THING that only a research career COLLECTION would give you an idea of how amazing he is. Two bits of news on the Miller front.  One, his new release, "Plague of Love (love, lust and lunacy) is a more hard-edge rock side of his persona that spotlights Miller's voice and grunge guitar skills. The other scoop; Miller is now gigging as a singer with David Swain's big band II-V-I Jazz Orchestra as Mr. Yours Truly. I've told you for years, Laurence Miller is a genius. Wake up! ..."

 


Today, Laurence performances solo on acoustic guitar, singing primarily his own songs from the various bands he's run over the years.  The material is eclectic, venturing in realms of lovelorn angst, melancholia, and deeper flights of fancy.  Many of the songs he currently performs today are featured on his solo CD recordings, each packed with multitrack full-band versions {drums, bass, acoustic & electric guitars, keyboards, accordion, multiple vocals, etc.}


Two songs from his upcoming CD due Fall 2018
