Produced by Jason Charles Miller, Stewart Cararas and Matt Hyde, From the Wreckage – Part One is Miller’s fifth full-length and sixth studio release. The album features several collaborations, including Shoenfeld and Long on the new single, Duane Betts of the Allman Betts Band on “Expiration Day,” and Katie Cole from Smashing Pumpkins on “Day After Day,” which also features film composer Eban Schletter on theremin.
Widely remembered as the voice of the rock band Godhead, Miller commented about the collaborations on the forthcoming record: “I have so many friends who happen to also be great musicians, and I love collaborating with them. I live in Los Angeles, so when friends from Nashville travel through on tour, I try and grab ‘em while I can and hit the record button – not to mention all the amazing musicians who live in Los Angeles. My long-time collaborator and friend Stewart Cararas was paramount in helping me complete both this album, and Part Two, another seven tracks that we are planning to release in summer 2021. And of course, I need to mention the great Matt Hyde – he produced my last full-length album, and we continue to work together when our schedules permit.”
An accomplished performer with more than two decades of professional experience as a singer, songwriter, producer and voice actor, Jason Charles Miller has quietly established himself as a strong force in the Americana, Country and Southern Rock genres.
Ricky Medlocke of the infamous southern rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd described Miller as “a cutting edge, rock/country/blues artist of these times and a great vocalist, musician, and writer. In other words, don’t come a knockin’ if you’re not prepared for country rockin!”
Released in 2018 by Sony Music, In the Wasteland was Miller’s third full-length olo release. It featured numerous guest appearances, including Rickey Medlocke (Lynyrd Skynyrd), Charlie Starr (Blackberry Smoke), and Dug Pinnick (King’s X). The album expanded on Miller’s roots in Americana and country, dynamically exposing his blues-inspired and southern rock influences.

He has also contributed two songs to the critically acclaimed ‘Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance’ soundtrack and sang backup for Robert Smith of The Cure on the Reeves Gabrels/Robert Smith track “Yesterday’s Gone.”

In 2004, Miller penned the all-star collaboration “Forever in Our Hearts,” a song to benefit the victims of the 2004 tsunami in South Asia, which included Brian McKnight, Mya, Jacoby Shaddix (Papa Roach), Nate Dogg, and many more.
