MORE ABOUT NIMROD WILDFIRE
NIMROD WILDFIRE is the historically obscure, self-ironic, and metaphorical name for Bob Miller's latest music project. Corporate Refugee features heartfelt poetry and supple guitar sounds by Miller. When it comes to music, Bob is a Renaissance man: an avid historian, passionate poet, and industry wonk, he is both guru and perpetual student of electric guitar technique. His “trans-genre” sound is seasoned here and there by a little bit of country, reggae, and jazz, all pulled together with the pliant guitar characteristic of Nimrod Wildfire. Virtuoso cameos by London guitarist Matt Backer, man-of-all-keys Paul Hofmann, and delightful female backup vocals led by Tina Albright. Miller’s deep historical understanding of contemporary music comes through in every carefully crafted song on this album. Every song an “A” on this one.
