About Band

     He was born in March 1969 in Aiken, South Carolina . He moved to Beaumont, Texas...then on to Vidor, Texas as a child. At the age of eight, he began impersonating Elvis Presley at nightclubs, VFW’s, American Legions, & retirement facilities. He performed in various country, rock, Cajun, & blues bands in the Golden Triangle of Beaumont, Texas . 

     Alton joined a rock & roll band known as Rattlesnake Logic. Together, they toured Wyoming, South Dakota, & Montana . He joined the Army in 1994 as an M1A1 Abrams Tank Crewman. He played as the drummer & lead singer for a band known as The Blue Aces. They competed in the Army Battle of the Bands, where Alton was awarded top vocalist out of twenty other contestants. Their band won first place in the country genre & best overall in the World Competition Battle of the Bands. Alton rejoined the Army in January 2003, where he found himself stationed at Fort Riley, Kansas . He was deployed in September of that year in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom I & II, & The Global War on Terrorism. In October 2004, after returning to the states, he recorded one of his songs, The Man That Made the Medal. He wrote this song about a dear friend who was killed during the initial ground war in Iraq. The Man That Made the Medal received special interest from two local radio stations (Sunny 102.5 & Angel 95.5) & received a large listener response from his interviews & radio air-play. 

     After a performance in Manhattan, Kansas, Alton was introduced to producer Joe Mills. They selected four songs from a list of many that Alton had written over the years to be recorded & pitched to record labels. He takes his music very seriously and always gives 110% to whatever task is before him. Music is in his blood, it is a part of him, & it is what he does best.   

 

THE MAN THAT MADE THE MEDAL.....The Man That Made The Medal isn't just about soldiers, it's about any one who puts there life on the line....in or out of a uniform. The medal that hangs upon a chest, displayed in a velvet lined box, or sits packed away in the bottom of a footlocker is a symbol of many things...character, valor, honor, country, selflessness, and integrity.  In a moment, Alton realized that this song is about the police officer who responds to a crime that is being committed, the fireman that runs into a burning building , a paramedic who races to the scene of an accident to revive an auto crash victim, or the quick thinking civilian who runs out into the busy street to save a small child from passing cars........."TO ME ALL ARE THE MEN AND WOMEN THAT MAKE THE MEDAL............" Alton Miller
