Jason Charles Miller Signs With Century Media Records

Multi-faceted musician/performer and Takamine artist Jason Charles Miller is proud to announce that he has signed with Century Media Records. A veteran artist with more than two decades of work to his credit, Miller is commonly known in the music world as the front man and founding member of the industrial rock outfit Godhead, but has established himself in recent years as a solo artist and sought-after songwriter and producer.

It's been Jason's thick-hearted southern rock project "Natural Born Killer" that has been the most recent focus of buzz and reason for this signing. Something about the seasoned edge of Jason's voice and writing that suits this soulful genre so well.

Jason's Takamine of choice is a model EF360S-TT. With solid rosewood back and sides and solid spruce Thermal top, this vintage-sounding, full-bodied dreadnaught equipped with Takamine's famed Palathetic Pickup and TLD-2 Preamp has become essential to Jason's latest endeavors. Miller offers details about the vital role acoustic guitar plays in his "genre mashing" in this interesting interview with Takamine from last summer.

Jason also co-produced the new Billy Ray Cyrus album, "Thin Line" while maintaining his legendary voice-over status from having been featured in over a hundred video games and animated productions including "World of Warcraft", "The Legend of Korra" and "Mafia III" to name but a few.

Jason will start of 2017 with appearances at NAMM (ESP / Takamine Guitars Stage) on January 20th and the Anime Los Angeles Convention from January 27th- 29th. His first scheduled shows of the New Year will take place at "The Federal" in North Hollywood on January 26th and "Bar Sinister" in Hollywood on March 18th.
