In this, his debut album, Ross has swapped the competition platform for a contemporary sound featuring full band arrangements, some stripped back performances and everything in between. There’s even a pipe quartet where Ross performs all four parts.

The Roke is the town tune of the Ancient and Royal Burgh of Linlithgow where Ross Miller was brought up and is the official the Town Piper.

A finalist in the 2019 BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year and a Danny Kyle Award Winner at Celtic Connections Ross has also won the World Pipe Band Championships and an array of Solo Piping prizes in his career so far. The tunes on this instrumental album are all either Ross’ compositions or his favourite tunes to play. The music ranges from tunes he has played in pipe bands given a new twist to modern Reels and Jigs played with passion and verve.

The album is released on Ross’ 25th Birthday and is a reflection of years of hard work honing his skills as a piper and composer.
