What Critics Are Saying: "Shelley Miller is a songwriter’s songwriter; the sort that other artists will pick through her catalog over time for songs to cover. While this is true, it’s hard to imagine most artists interpreting Miller’s songs with the same mix of comedy, tragedy and warm-hearted grit that she manages on When It’s All Gone, You Come Back. Miller inhabits her songs like a second skin..." - Wildy's World, March 2010 "When It’s All Gone, You Come Back is a must have CD. This is songwriting and performance at the highest level.
I think that Shelley Miller’s When It’s All Gone, You Come Back will be one my top picks for the year 2010." - Don Sechelski, The Muse's Muse "Extremely well played acoustic folk with wonderful shimmering melodies...this woman's got enormous talent..." - Common Folk Meadow, March 2010 "Listening to her is like pulling up a pair of very, very soft faded jeans over bare skin." - Les Reynolds, indie-music.com "Her voice is so important to her sound it's akin to a Stradivarius violin – rare and difficult to duplicate. You likely won't find this brand of breaking, heartfelt folk on American Idol, but if there was “Americana Idol” we'd be texting her in." - Hannah Frank, Chicago 6 Corners, March 2010 Read more on Last.fm.
