ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Springfield Mystery Plays was the solo CD released in 1996 by Russell Miller, who went on to form the pop-rock band Dr. Isosceles with Jamie Choquette and Matt Jenkins.

Ostensibly a singer-songwriter album (which has gotten some airplay on public radio folk music programs across the U.S.), Springfield Mystery Plays presents stories of people who have fallen from grace, one way or another, and what they did with that. The songs feature lovely guitar and bass playing carefully arranged to create the mood but not get in the way of the singing.

A few of the songs were recorded live in the studio or on the stage, featuring just guitar and voice. The rest feature accompanying instrumentation of varying complexity. Most of the songs show pronounced pop leanings, and two of them (Ride With You and Waiting For The Wind To Turn) are still in the live repertoire of Dr. Isosceles.

"This guy is a marvelous storyteller!" -- Steve Jerrett, Sunday Morning Coffeehouse, KOPN FM, Columbia, Missouri.

"Radio-ready new folk." -- Seth Rogovoy, The Berkshire Eagle, Pittsfield, Massachusetts.
