Steve Miller


Roadrunner/Loud & Proud Records has announced a new deal with the Steve Miller Band and Miller's new imprint Space Cowboy Records. Recorded at film producer George Lucas' Skywalker Ranch, Bingo! (arriving June 15) is the band's first studio album in 17 years. A true return to Miller's roots, Bingo! echoes his early years in the Chicago music scene and features carefully chosen and crafted tracks performed in distinctive Steve Miller Band fashion.

“With the continuing evolution of the music industry and all the new exciting opportunities that are available, I feel this is a perfect time to start a new record company and establish new innovative partnerships. I am looking forward to a long relationship with Roadrunner / Loud & Proud" says Miller of the new endeavor.

Early reaction from fans and industry insiders are comparing the album to Miller's 1968 masterpiece Sailor. Bingo!, will be the first of two albums that were recorded together as a complete body of work, the second of which will be offered next year via the new label partnership.

Bingo! was co-produced by Andy Johns (Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, Van Halen), with artwork designed by the legendary Storm Thorgerson. These recordings feature longtime Steve Miller Band member Norton Buffalo, who sadly passed away in 2009.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
