Jaik Miller (February 2, 1970 – February 24, 2012). Over two decades, the singer, songwriter, and poet collaborated with a wide variety of master artists including Patti Smith, Warren Haynes, John Popper, and Suzanne Vega. Several of his own projects achieved cult status, including Xanax 25, Jerk, TRUStY, Jaik Miller Band, and Dennis Black, Instant Classic! Miller's alter ego of 2010. Shortly before his passing in 2012, the haunting melody The Event was released from his final project with urban country supergroup The New Years.
