Makin' Friends With Ryan Miller
Ryan Miller, a recent transplant to Vermont, needs new friends. During his ten years in New York, Miller, a film composer and lead singer of Guster had amassed quite a collection of vibrantly creative, inspirational, entrepreneurial, gigantic personalities. Simple math told Miller he’d be hard pressed to find the concentration of these people, his tribespeople, in the sparsely populated Green Mountain State, and his first few years here have been tough.
Fortunately, Miller has come to understand that this great state has its own brand of what he affectionately calls “high functioning weirdos,” and they’re often functioning on an even higher level than their urban counterparts. The artists, craftspeople and entrepreneurs who choose to live in Vermont and pursue unconventional, creative or otherwise interesting lives “can almost be weirder here,” says Miller. “You don’t have to monetize everything here the way you do in a city like New York so you’re additionally unencumbered.” And so it is with great excitement and promise that Miller decided to find these incredible people all over Vermont, and to ask them to be his friend.
