Se il suo biglietto da visita come leader è il quartetto ...

High-profile mainstream gigs like appearing with the band on Late Night with Seth Myers hardly hint at the diverse complexity of her collaborations and work under own name, most conspicuously including the band Boom Tic Boom.

Honey Ear Trio: Swivel

Read "Swivel" reviewed by Mark Corroto

The opening track of Allison Miller's new Honey Ear Trio recording, “Arby," had me singing the lyrics to “Heavy Metal Drummer," the 2002 Wilco hit song ..."She fell in love with the drummer/Another and another/She fell in love/I miss the innocence I've known/Playing KISS covers, beautiful and stoned."
