Old Sand Mill's debut album, "The World Is Getting Colder," released by SHP Records/Universal Music and BMI Music International, is available on iTunes, and on all major music online stores. The album hits retail stores in March 2018, but has already caused quite a stir on the internet, from Amazon Music, to ReverbNation, and with critics and fans worldwide!

Old Sand Mill is Chip Miller, a noted filmmaker/screenwriter/music video director, singer/songwriter, and musician, who was one-half of the popular 70's folk duo, Reynolds and Miller, touring with Paul Simon, Seals & Crofts, Jackson Brown, and Donovan. Miller is joined on this album by Janaki Jennings, a multi-talented musician. Miller commenced work on their ambitious and critically received CD in 2012, and recorded in London, Nashville, NYC, and LA. They took an old school, almost analog approach to their first full-length work. Chip also called on a host of his famous friends he had directed MTV and VH-1 music videos for, like Darryl Jones of The Rolling Stones, Jerry Douglas of Alison Krauss & Union Station, the legendary Brian Wilson, r&b icon Deniece Williams, The Punch Brothers, Earle Mankey of Concrete Blonde, and many more) asking if they would guest on his CD. Lucky for listeners and fans of this surging, indie band, they all said yes. While still recording and mixing the album, they sent out an EP of advance tracks to their agent in LA who in turn sent the EP out to a few labels and distributors. Before very long, the band was picked was picked up by Universal Music and signed a publishing deal with BMI Music International. Here are two sample reviews:

Billboard International wrote:
“SHP Records/Universal Music intriguing new artist, Old Sand Mill, an alternative folk rock Brit-influenced band comprised of Coachella Valley songwriters/musicians Chip Miller and Janaki Jennings, has made an impressive debut with their ambitious and beautiful new album, “The World Is Getting Colder.” The songs are catchy, edgy, hypnotic, acid-like trippy, gorgeous, silly, deep, spiritual, haunting, sad, happy, scary, full of warning, loss, and in the end – simple and bittersweet hope for peace and love. This is worth a listen. Perhaps we need a little more John Lennon and Gandhi in this cold new technological world of isolation and disconnect.”

The Music Connection wrote:
“If you dig Crosby, Stills & Nash, Donovan, Yes, Pink Floyd, The Beach Boys, and Simon & Garfunkel, with a dash of Beck and Radiohead, then you will dig Old Sand Mill’s debut work, ‘The World Is Getting Colder.’ This well-produced album pays homage to a wide range of classic and contemporary influences and dares to move effortlessly from one genre to another, with fun and intriguing original tunes penned by singer/songwriter and longtime film and music video director Chip Miller, he is joined by some incredible, well known backing musicians, and numerous guest artists like the iconic Brian Wilson, as well as multi-Grammy winners Jerry Douglas (Alison Krauss & Union Station), Darryl Jones of The Rolling Stones, r&b legend Deneice Williams, the late Howie Wyeth who played piano and drums with Bob Dylan for years, Gabe WItcher (The Punch Brothers), the Vancouver Philharmonic Orchestra, and many more. This one’s worth the journey, people. It’s like going to the movies through the spell of song. MS says check it out.”

I love this album!!! I must say I listened to it on MySpace first, but I bought it too! It speaks to me and my entire familey. I hope this album touches the world as it has touched mine. Everyone exaggerates when say they this, but I truly think I do not. This album showed me peace for change when I always thought force for change. Unique completely is this interesting concept and warning presented as a Smörgåsbord of eclectic music and artists. I have my favorites from album, but each piece is not complete without entire album to introduce each. Bravo and much great thanks again!
