Scott Miller was kind enough to stop by WNKU's studio to play a few tunes. Though he left behind the rest of the Commonwealth, he managed to bring along a past member of the Commonwealth, Rayna Gellert. Miller and Gellert met at West Virginia's Mountain Stage last year, and have been friends and performing buddies ever since. Together they have a brand new EP entitled, "CoDEPENDENTS". It's a five-song collection of Miller's story-telling songwriting, polished with the talented musical abilities of Rayna Gellert.
