About Matt Skellenger Group

“Subspace Transmission is dedicated to our bandmate, mentor, and friend Ron Miles. It was released on March 8, 2023. One year after Ron’s passing. This 12-track album features 2 of Ron’s compositions, and his incredible playing is also featured on 2 tracks. The artwork for the album was done by Ron’s son Honor Miles. Ron Miles, We Love and Thank You.” – Matt
