Citing Woodie Guthrie, John Prine and Paul Simon as big influences, Scott Miller's choice to pursue a career as a musician was never a tough decision. His father played big-band trumpet and the young Miller was enamored with rock 'n' roll.

Since 2000, he's released six full-lengths. His latest, For Crying Out Loud, which was financed through selling demos to dedicated fans, is his first release on his own label. It's been called an artful mix of genres (roots, country, Americana, rock), though that's always been a strong suit of Miller's.

Joining him on stage is veteran Will Hoge. Through sharp lyricisms and strong melodies, his songs are delivered with a passion and desperation that demand attention. Both artists spoke with World Cafe host David Dye and performed songs from their recent releases on board the 2011 Cayamo Cruise ship.
