First Nations comedian Ryan McMahon is teaming up with Six Nations’ own recording artist Matthew Jesus Miller for a show at the GREAT Atrium on February 18th.

Miller will be performing songs from his newly released EP “The Separation.” The five song EP is the first of two Miller brings to the table as JASPER, along with another notable Six Nations musical prodigy; Producer Tim “2oolman” Hill.

“Originally we went into the studio to record another acoustic CD. While I was in the studio ‘2oolman’ sent me a beat and I loved it. I asked him if I could use it, he said “go ahead.”

Screen Shot 2014-01-27 at 1.48.17 PMThe two worked together completing the five song EP entirely through digital communication, with Hill located in Winnipeg and Miller in Mosonee. “The album is called ‘The Seperation’ because we were never together in the studio,” Miller joked.

This is a new style of song for the well loved musician. Typically he has leaned more towards the guitar and a hard rock sound, but Miller was able to work together with Hill’s hip hop influences to come up with a new sound. “It’s more like, Alternative Soul I would call it,” Miller said. “I’ve never done anything like this actually. Blues has always been such a huge part of the Six Nations music scene. When I was younger I kind of avoided it and went in a heavier direction. This is the first time I’ve let the Blues and Motown come through.”

Miller is opening in Ohsweken for indigenous comedian Ryan McMahon. McMahon, whose latest comedy album, “The Sh**tiest Warrior” spent the last 6 months at the top of the charts on iTunes, is on an intimate six show tour through Ontario; with stops in Parry Sound, Wikwemikong, Nipissing, Sudbury, Toronto, and ending at Six Nations.

McMahon has toured the United States and Canada, performed at the Just for Laughs Comedy Festival, the Winnipeg Comedy Festival and was the first indigenous comedian to do a comedy special for CBC. McMahon is known for taking an “unapologetic look at the good, the bad & the ugly between the relationship of Indian Country & the mainstream.”

The two artists team up for McMahon’s Six Nations stop at the G.R.E.A.T. Atrium Theatre,16 Sunrise Court in Ohsweken, on February 18th. Doors open at 8pm. Tickets are available at the door or online at www.rmcomedy.com
