Steve Hussey and Jake Eddy deliver nostalgic, sweet , family friendly country tunes, with innocent lyrics, and old time country banjo riffs.
The Miller Girl is a classic country single, from the album, The Miller Girl. About young love, this single showcases Steve Hussey's vocals and creative banjo riffs of Jake Eddy.Whereas these lyric themes are ones we have heard in many country songs before, what makes this album truly unique is the instrumentals.
The album originally started as a recording project for Steve's wedding, the partnership between singer/songwriter Steve Hussey and 16-year-old multi-instrumental prodigy Jake Eddy, transformed into this 10 track album called The Miller Girl.
Jake Eddy is really one to watch, at only 16, he has already shared the stage with Don Rigby, Idletymes, James King and more.
Eddy is widely known and celebrated for his flat picking skills on guitar. He is also very talented on the Banjo, Mandolin, Ukelele, Guitarlele, Upright bass, and Dobro, all of which, are featured on this duo's newly released album The Miller Girl.
