BEHIND THE MUSIC
Miner's style is a fresh take on an old classic, with a focus on authentic storytelling, reminiscent of the country music troubadours of the past. “Miner displayed remarkable guitar chops in-between singing about dreams of Montana and ghosts by his home in Fort Collins, Colorado” says Brett Garske of “Old Guy at the Show”. Hailing from the Pacific Northwest, David Miner took an early liking to classic country music, and began traveling the western US at age 19, playing in every honky tonk, dive bar, and beer joint he could find, before settling in New Braunfels, TX.
Miner released his album “Silver Valley” in early 2021. “If you are a lover of the country music of yesteryear you are sure to find something to love in this 13 track collection. David’s voice is clean, crisp, and the lyrics are undeniable and effortless”, says Old West Americana. “Traditional country themes of relationships (good and bad), rural stories and social concerns, and closeness to nature are explored in thirteen original songs on this expertly self produced record” says Eilis Boland of Lonesome Highway, going on to say that the album is “proof positive that one doesn’t have to hail from the USA’s Deep South to make good country music”.
