Northern Virginia-based independent singer/songwriter Jon Miller has just released his self-written, self-produced debut album Patent Pending.  Showcasing Miller’s distinctive jam-inspired harmonica-infused acoustic/electric guitar style, Patent Pending is a collection of upbeat and complex songs; some offering snapshots of Miller’s upbringing and daily life, others presenting the listener a look from some unique (and humorous) perspectives.  A father of two, mechanical engineer by training and patent attorney by day, Miller’s album is a labor of love, self-recorded and produced over nights and weekends in his basement studio.  Patent Pending’s smart, inspired lyrics and rich compositions will draw in the listener, and the creative songwriting will make this album an instant favorite.
