Rhett Miller, born Stewart Ransom Miller II in Austin, Texas on September 6, 1970, is the lead singer of the alt-country band the Old 97's as well as a successful solo musician. He graduated from St. Mark's School of Texas in Dallas in 1989.
Miller briefly attended Sarah Lawrence College before dropping out after one semester. In 1990, Miller joined Murry Hammond and drummer Benjamin Warrenfells to form Sleepy Heroes, a Dallas-based "alterna-pop" band. They released one album, Under a Radio Sun, before their breakup.
Rhett Miller has recorded three solo albums. 1989's Mythologies was produced and recorded by future Old 97's member Murry Hammond. 2002's The Instigator, produced and recorded with Jon Brion, achieved critical acclaim and substantial airplay on alternative-oriented radio stations. In 2006, Miller released The Believer, his first effort for the Verve Forecast label. It includes a cover of friend Jon Brion's "I Believe She's Lying," and "Fireflies," a duet with Rachael Yamagata.
Miller toured with Neil Finn in 2004, bringing him to the attention of many. He recorded a version of Simon and Garfunkel's "Homeward Bound" for one of MasterCard's "Priceless" advertisements. Songs from Miller's second solo album, The Instigator, were featured on an episode of Joan of Arcadia during its short run on CBS. Songs by both Miller and Old 97's have been used in the soundtrack of the American comedy series Scrubs. Miller also covered the Beatles song "Girl" for 2005's This Bird Has Flown - A 40th Anniversary Tribute to the Beatles' Rubber Soul.
