The Brooklyn born singer-songwriter brings the boldness of the borough to his new album American English.
As much as we’d love to pack our bags and move to the big apple, some things are easier said than done. Luckily, we can live our New York dreams vicariously through Tor Miller. Tor sets that mood through the album art, which features him in a trench coat amidst the the dark and light of the inner city.
“I have spent much of my time over the last four years living and working in London. At first I was stricken at the glaring differences in slang between British English and American English. There would be moments where I would be completely lost in a conversation. As I spent more time I started picking up on the slang and infusing it into my way of speech. American English is the way I talk, the experiences I had as a young American in the UK and the influences from my homeland and my new home which pop their head up in the album”.
This fusion between the UK and NY cultures, makes American English raw, moving, and authentic. Not to mention, a few tracks like “Crust Punk Queen” are filled with traces of 70’s flare. Other notable tracks he’s already released include “Baby Blue,” “Surrender” and “Always.”
