Matthew Ed Stillman has never felt like he could dig back deep enough in any of the genres that he loves. Whether it was Sam Cooke, Jackie Wilson or Ray Charles in Soul and R&B; Son House, Tampa Red, and Robert Johnson in the blues; Johnny Horton & Carl Perkins in Rockabilly, or Carson Robison, Ernest Tubb, and Jimmy Rodgers in Country; Stillman has always wanted to hear and learn the music that influenced his hero's. The roots of Americana run deep, and should not be forgotten in this age of watered-down genre crossing money grabbing pop music.
The Miles Burning Band: Michael Pentz on lead guitar (also Stillmans producer), and his longtime band-mate through multiple acts, multi- instrumentalist Tony Spadaro on bass. The goal is to continue paying our respects to the traditional Americana roots sounds while moving forward with original material and the goal of making a sound that is truly our own.
