The world doesn’t really need another breakup song. Well, maybe one more.

Hello folks. It’s fair to say that my single is now well and truly launched! The party in Vespbar the other night was loads of fun, so big thanks to everyone who came along. Special thanks to Julia and the Doogans and Trusty and the Foe for playing the launch and being so braw.

If you didn’t make it along: fear not! You can still buy physical copies of the single from Bandcamp, just click this link right here. Prefer digital copies? You can purchase a digital copy from this link or simply click “buy” in the player below!

If you like being able to download your music on the go, you can also purchase a digital copy of the single from iTunes. Just search for Shambles Miller on the iTunes store or go via this link here.

Not convinced? If only there were other people whose opinions you could trust about whether or not my single is worth buying. Wait! There are!

“By the end of ‘Confessions‘ you are left feeling somehow connected with others, with the thinking being that things really aren’t as bad as you thought they were some 3 minutes and 53 seconds ago before you pressed play, and for such an achievement the entire arrangement of this single from start to finish must be applauded, recommended, and thoroughly enjoyed.”
 Jon Sidwell, Music Liberation

“In addition to a fine sense of melody (and an accent Americans may find a bit thick), Shambles’ songs tend to be characterized by a deft sense of humor.”
 When You Motor Away

“The skiffle-tinged shuffle of “Confessions” bursts with wry wit, David Bowie impressions and buckets of pathos. The almost impossibly catchy song is built around a rousing, sing-along chorus where Miller perhaps correctly observes “the world doesn’t really need another break up song“. But most songs of heartbreak aren’t created quite like this, and lack the sense of self-deprecating but gentle humour which Miller manages to cram into his lyrics in every surprising couplet.”

If you like my music, please share the Bandcamp link or just tell a friend or something. I’ll be really grateful. Thanks so much for all your support!

Til next time,

love Shambles

Beans on Glasgow

Hello folks! You’re looking lovely today, as are your mums! You might wonder why I’m complimenting your mothers; it’s not mother’s day yet, after all. It IS on Sunday though. Which is also the day I’m playing a gig with Beans on Toast!

You might have seen/heard me talk about this chap before. There’s a story I tell all too often, so I’m going to break with tradition and, well, not tell it again.

What I AM going to tell you is that you should bloody well come to this gig on Sunday. It’s at the 13th Note and also supporting will be Dave Hughes and Daniel versus the World. It starts at 8pm and it’s £5 on the door. That’s not too steep for a night of braw music now, is it? Mr. on Toast is an excellent singer-songwriter and his songs are immediately likeable, so I’m banking on this being more than enough to convince you to come along:

The sweetest-sounding song about cocaine I’VE ever heard. Come along on Sunday to hear more of the same great songwriting. And if you DO come, I might even stop telling that story. I mean, it was funny at first but COME ON MAN, get a GRIP, how many times? Seriously.

So I hope you’ll come along and see us play songs at you. Bring a mum!* All are welcome.

Til next time,

love Shambles x

*preferably your own mum
