New Trio....New Sound!

Guess what?  I started a trio recently.  After a few rehearsals we played our first gig at Olde Hickory Tap Room in downtown Hickory.  It was a great time!  I forgot how much I love playing in a trio.  I'm currently setting up some more shows with the trio around town, so make sure to check out my show schedule for updates!

The trio consists of Matt Decker on drums, E'Lon Jordan-Dunlap on bass guitar, and Michael Miller, that's me :), on guitar / vocals.  We played for about three hours last Saturday at the Tap Room weaving our way through blues, rock, funk, and jazz fusion.  The show went well, and the bar is excited about having us back in the near future.

Very special guest, Tony Eltora, sat in with us for a set and it was awesome!  I always enjoy sharing the stage with Tony....he is a great player.

I'll post recordings and pictures of the trio at upcoming shows.  Until next time.....

Guess What I Just Finished?

It has been awhile since my last blog post.  Sorry for the delay!  I've been locked away in my studio working on "Black Tie" my new EP.  I had a ton of fun working on this project, and I'm excited to share the finished product with everyone.

"Black Tie" features four rock songs ranging from alt rock to blues.  E'Lon Bruce-Dunlap played bass, Matt Decker played drums, and I performed all of the guitar and vocal parts.  E'Lon and Matt were great to work with...very talented musicians.

The EP is now available on virtually every digital distribution channel such as itunes, amazon, spotify, rhapsody, google play etc.  You can download or stream the album just search for "Michael Miller Black Tie" on any of your favorite music streaming or download sites.
