Mara Miller was discovered by the folk singer Damien Jurado (Secretly Canadian/Sub Pop) in late 2002 during a tour that passed through Texas. After Jurado's set, Mara's husband Ryan handed him some of the home recordings that she had been working on while she shyly waited in another room. Damien fell in love with the recordings, comparing her voice to “...the heartache of Kitty Wells and the lonesome howl of Robert Johnson.” The original four track recordings feature Mara singing breathy country-influenced vocals over sparse and simple guitar and serve as the seed for her full -length album.
For all intents and purposes, Mara Miller is a solo singer songwriter, but has chosen the moniker Bosque Brown as the vehicle for her recordings. "I feel a connection with writers like Townes Van Zandt and John Prine," Miller says. "There is something about being from Texas...when you hear others sing about it you just know." Her lyrics are simple and straightforward, about friends, family, love, the struggle between good and evil, or her feelings at the moment, not based on fictional storytelling.
