Called after a river that operates through Stephenville, TX, Bosque Dark brown is usually a lightly Christian-flavored alt-country strap, but is actually, when all is usually said and carried out, singer and songwriter Mara Lee Miller, whose haunting, dark, and oddly hopeful and spiritual narratives are somewhat similar to Gillian Welch. Developing up in Stephenville, Miller’s Baptist history uncovered her to countless hymns and her mom, a piano instructor, ensured her daughters understood how exactly to play those hymns on piano. Miller, in the mean time, was attracted to the country tunes she would sometimes hear on the air. She relocated to Denton, TX when she was 18 years of age to attend university and quickly became area of the regional music picture while discovering performers like Townes Vehicle Zandt, Hank Williams, and Gillian Welch, most of whom would show formative in her personal writing and performing design. A musician friend, Ryan Miller, wanted to record her tunes on the four-track recorder, and along the way, the pair dropped in like and were wedded. Miller would give away the completed demonstration, generally with her personal homemade artwork, to relatives and buddies. Damien Jurado toured through Denton in 2002 and was presented with a copy from the demonstration recordings. Impressed with what he noticed, Jurado got Miller record along with his manufacturer Eric Fisher in Seattle, as well as the ensuing album, Bosque Dark brown Has Mara Lee Miller, premiered by Burnt Toast Vinyl fabric in 2005. A four-song EP, Cerro Verde, implemented in the imprint in 2006. A full-length established, Baby, appeared in ’09 2009.
