Tor Miller - FUV Live - 2015

by Alisa Ali
This Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter released his first EP Headlights last month. His impressive debut’s carefully crafted minimalist sound and mature lyrics have been compared to great acts like Tom Waits and Jeff Buckley, and the songwriter is only nineteen years old! Tor Miller recently stopped by Studio A to talk with me about his debut EP. He also performed some songs live in studio.  We’ll hear that performance and conversation during this episode of FUV Live.

Solid Sound 2015, the music and arts festival curated by Wilco, announced its impressive lineup of bands on Tuesday night via a trivia game with fans during a live Facebook event. Perhaps guessing Wilco or even Tweedy was easiest, but the mighty roster also includes Real Estate, Richard Thompson, Mac DeMarco, Shabazz Palaces, Ryley Walker, Luluc, Cibo Matto, the Felice Brothers, Parquet Courts, NRBQ, Taj Mahal, The Autumn Defense, King Sunny Ade and Bill Frisell. Tickets for Solid Sound 2015 are available now.

This year's festival takes place June 26-28 at MASS MoCA in North Adams, Massachusetts. Team FUV covered this expansive, exciting festival in 2013 and we will be there again, offering on-site coverage to listeners who aren't able to make the trek north. We're happy to be back!
