Choke Cherry Tree introduces a retooled Ben Miller Band lineup, with Miller and fellow founding member Scott Leeper joined by new additions Rachel Ammons and Smilin' Bob Lewis. The pair's multi-instrumental skills bring added authority to Miller's rootsy new compositions, while maintaining the high energy level (complete with homemade instruments constructed from broken and discarded axes) that originally endeared the band to its fans. Elsewhere, Rachel Ammons' expressive vocals lend depth to the haunting "Redwing Blackbird. According to Miller, "Early in the process of making this album, I thought that we either had to really nail our live approach in the recording studio, or we needed to forget about that and just work on capturing the songs in an inventive way that presents them in their best light. We decided on the latter approach, and we never looked back.

Ben Miller Band with New West Records.
Released in 2018, Choke Cherry Tree is the second album the Ben Miller Band have cut for New West Records, and it finds Miller fronting a new lineup, with Miller and his longtime musical partner Scott Leeper joined by ts Bob Lewis and Rachel Ammons (who previously worked with the band Tyrannosaurus Chicken). Choke Cherry Tree is a big pot of sonic gumbo that runs hot-wired guitars up against marching percussion, finds fiddles making friends with drum loops and turntables, and makes room for horns and a string section while lost in Joplin, Missouri at four in the morning
