When Justin Miner wanted to put a fork in his previous band, Fight From Above, he didn't just jump into another project but decided to take a break from music away from the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles. So he took a trek up the California coast, seeking solitary confinement in Central and South America where the only music to reach his ears was the sound of the oceans and mountains. After coming back home, he tagged wife Kate Miner, brother Jeremy Miner and a few friends to form the West-coast indie/folk sound of Miner. Their current EP Hey Love is energetic and intimate, think Edward Sharpe or Tallest Man On Earth, giving off that California laid-back charm. It's the kind of music that you can listen to while camping in the redwoods reading Kerouac.
