Episode 034: Ryan Miller (Guster)
What a thrill it is for me to welcome Guster’s Ryan Miller, one of my all-time favorite songwriters, onto the show. I first heard Guster in 2000, but they’d already been making music for nine years at that point. Their 1999 major-label debut, Lost And Gone Forever, pushed them into more mainstream popularity, as did subsequent tours with the likes of Barenaked Ladies and John Mayer. Since then they’ve been a pop-rock mainstay, releasing four more albums – including 2015’s awesome Evermotion. Ryan’s also an accomplished composer, scoring for films like Safety Not Guaranteed and The Kings of Summer. We chatted about how his film work has expanded his horizons when it comes to Guster, the best songwriting advice he’s ever received, and much more!
