he can play! It's a standard reaction to a chance encounter with
British blues man Larry Miller, and is typically followed by another
thought: Why isn't he a superstar?` maybe that's the Unfinished
Business' Miller is referring to.
A big live draw for many years, Miller is now starting to write
albums that bottle the white heat of his shows, and you sense this
latest effort is his best shot at the A-list. Back in 2008, we were
impressed with Outlaw Blues, but Unfinished Business is even better:
a taut, fiery, ambitious record. With stinging riffs dropping like
mortar fire, there's a temptation to categorise Miller as a `guitar
hero` but that's a disservice to his excellent original writing and
battle-scarred voice box. Business is good."

trance with his guitar skills. A true master at work who many have
said fit's a void left by the great late Rory Gallagher. Much
respected within the music industry by fellow artists who have
nothing but good words to say about him and his guitar playing
picking up his brother's guitar and writing his first song, he felt
his future lay in Rock music, being influenced by some of the guitar
greats - Jimi Hendrix, Rory Gallagher, Johnny Winter, Stevie Ray
Vaughan and Gary Moore. "For me, my moment of inspiration was
seeing Rory Gallagher live, I had never experienced anything like
it. So loud, so gloriously on the edge of total mayhem, yet Rory was
still totally in control. How could I not do this too! Like Rory I'd

singing, producing, playing and leading."
quickly, Larry found his own Blues/Rock style, and has been
constantly refining it. He is a guitarist, singer, songwriter, with
a love for his music which is simply infectious.
many years in the music business and touring constantly, Larry has
built up a large following across the UK and building an ever
increasing army of fans in Europe. His status as guitar slinger, is
becoming legendary with his exciting, mesmerising guitar playing and
rip roaring live shows. His engaging personality brings a dimension
of showmanship to his performances like no other. In 2009, Larry
played an amazing seven encores at the Cambridge Rock Festival and a
declaration was made of a "National Larry Miller day".
This is embedded in the festival's history and he returned in 2010
to a standing ovation and the biggest crowd of the festival. He is
unique, there is only one Larry Miller.
Miller has released 6 albums, all of which have had critical
acclaim. The latest being 'Unfinished Business' which has had
reviews. One journalist in his review stated " Unfinished
Business is the business" and Classic Rock magazine wrote
glowing review of the album, giving it a top five star rating asking
"Why isn't he a superstar"?
Miller plays Gibson Les Paul, Fender Stratocaster and Telecaster
guitars through Marshall amplification. Larry says "Like many
guitar greats, I have used Marshall for years as it gives me exactly
what I need for my live shows and I am proud to be sponsored by
