is a man of many musical talents. As the lead singer of Guster
, he's written plenty of songs with a wide variety of tones and purposes. Now a bit older, married with children, Miller has found a new way to extend his musical talents to the world: Composing scores for feature films. His first score can be seen in the new indie flick Safety Not Guaranteed
, in theaters now. While Miller himself admits, "a good score is one that goes unnoticed," the single from the soundtrack "Big Machine" sure got our attention. Check out our interview with Ryan, including an acoustic performance of "Big Machine."
