Description

On the surface, there is an unlikely buzz around this album of Elvis covers by 63 year-old Dunedin grandmother, Erica Miller. Media from TV One, Kim Hill and Metro to the bnets and Real Groove have all jumped aboard to endorse it.

But this is an album that runs deep. Erica Miller – Shayne Carter's mum to you – has given an outstanding selection of tunes by the King an authentic, soulful outing, packing the tunes with raw emotion and a strident delivery.

The media storm continues over the next month with features running in the Herald and the Sunday Star Times, and more promised. There is a main centre tour by the Erica Miller Experience taking shape for early October. This is a great, powerful and somewhat unique debut.

As Shayne says:
“The music has a resonance and a depth a 23 year old could never create - there's a whole lifetime behind this record . These may be cover versions but it's like the singer has lived the tunes and the truths behind them. The work of Elvis Presley pretty much gave us unlimited scope when it came to selecting the tracks because he covered nearly the entire spectrum of Western popular music during his career. Being a family of Elvis heads we knew where to look - obscure gospel sides and overlooked album cuts as well as the odd inevitable gazillion selling hit. But really Elvis is just the denominator - the true story of "Reconsidered" is something else. You don't get many debut albums from 63 year olds with this sort of commitment , this sense of personal investment, this sort of... uniqueness. "Reconsidered" has soul. The Erica Miller Experience totally gives it up. It's a big reminder that you should always listen to mum…”
