Rob I. Miller of Oakland’s Blues Lawyer, formerly of Mall Walk, releases his solo debut Maybe Another Time on Mt.St.Mtn. Every generation has had their moment that felt like the world was coming to an end, but it’d be hard to argue that 2020 hasn’t distilled that feeling into history’s most potent dose of despair. Though the new Christian Singles album was written during the early days of quarantine, it wasn’t the pandemic, the looming election, or impending climate change that caused Rob I. Miller to take stock. News that his father’s cancer had returned dredged up unresolved pain and brought a new sense of urgency to issues that had long lain dormant. Maybe Another Time, the 9-song debut under Miller’s solo moniker, confronts the difficult questions about family and forgiveness, and aging in a desperate world.
