Researching this brief, I found that some amateur last.fm impressionist tagged a Rhett Miller song as “a campfire and a tent and a flashlight and that river and a really really big bear but the bear is really really far away.” Strange as that sounds, it actually makes sense. Hooky and folky like Wilco and a young singer-songwriter like John Mayer, Rhett Miller delivers country-licked melodies that comfort you with their earnest intensity.
