Blake Miller is not your ordinary folk singer. At the age of 20, he’s already assembled a batch of songs that can only be described as enchanting. His debut, “Together with Cats”, released by Cleveland’s Exit Stencil Records, may owe small debts to Will Oldham, Elliott Smith, and Devendra Banhart, but Miller spreads on his own element of lo-fi charm, with a voice that is beautifully fragile and instrumental intricacies that are equally spooky and spiritual.
