Every generation has had their moment that felt like the world was coming to an end, but it’d be hard to argue that 2020 hasn’t distilled that feeling into history’s most potent dose of despair. Though the new Christian Singles album was written during the early days of quarantine, it wasn’t the pandemic, the looming election, or impending climate change that caused Rob I. Miller to take stock. News that his father’s cancer had returned dredged up unresolved pain and brought a new sense of urgency to issues that had long lain dormant. Maybe Another Time, the nine-song debut under Miller’s solo moniker, confronts the difficult questions about family and forgiveness, and aging in a desperate world.
Rob I. Miller is an Oakland-based musician who releases music under the name Christian Singles and performs with the groups Dick Stusso, Blues Lawyer, and Flex. Previously he was a member of Mall Walk and Mister Loveless. He owns and operates Vacant Stare Records, a micro-label focused on documenting artists in California’s Bay Area.
Maybe Another Time is the first solo release by Miller and it is limited to 100 copies on LP and digital. The release date is October 2 via Mt.St.Mtn. and it will be distributed world-wide by Revolver USA.
