SCOTS Heritage Magazine - - Music -

Fol­low­ing on from her highly ac­claimed de­but,

FlightofTime, Strata is Siob­han Miller’s lat­est stun­ning al­bum and it is clear that she has not wasted the in­ter­ven­ing pe­riod. From the open­ing Banks

ofNew­found­land to the late Andy M. Stew­art’s crowd pleaser TheRam­blin’Rover, com­plete with ac­cor­dion in­put from no less than Phil Cun­ning­ham, Siob­han con­veys a deep un­der­stand­ing of the songs with her rich, hon­est vo­cals. Sup­ported by an out­ra­geously tal­ented and award-win­ning bunch of mu­si­cians such as the afore­men­tioned Cun­ning­ham, Kris Dr­ever, Aaron Jones, and Ai­dan O’Rourke to name but a few, the whole al­bum is an au­ral treat in which Siob­han pays homage to songs and mu­sic ab­sorbed as she grew up. Adding her own re­spect­ful take to some great num­bers, Bob Dy­lan’s

OneTooManyMorn­ings a fine ex­am­ple, Siob­han ex­udes a con­fi­dence that whets the ap­petite for her next re­lease.
