Daniel Miller has a hard time describing his music. The Knoxville, TN native has always been influenced by a variety of genres and the evidence is in every album that he's released. "My goal is to take a location or region that I love and write songs about that place. My focus isn't on limiting a record to fit into a specific bin on a store shelf; it's to tell a story. So I can't say – 'Oh, I play rock music, or I'm a blues musician,' perhaps that's hurt me in the past."
Beginning with his solo debut, 2005's 'Southbound' (about Knoxville), Miller has stayed true to his craft. His 2007 release 'Backporch' was about the Lowcountry region of South Carolina and upcoming release, 'Beatty, NV', couldn't be more specific about his latest obsession. "Beatty is regarded as the gateway to Death Valley National Park. The land is just so sparse and has such a colorful history, I figured it was a great place to write about." Three of the album's tracks: 'Pigtails', 'Broke Down' and 'Calico Sunset' are already on the rotation of several Country and Americana radio stations along the East Coast. In fact, it was the popularity of those songs that gave Daniel the opportunity to open for Tim McGraw and Lady Antebellum during this past summer at the Comcast Center.
Daniel currently resides in North Reading, MA, a small town north of Boston. He has performed both as a solo act and with his full band up and down the East Coast in some of America's most beloved performance venues: CBGB, The Bowery Ballroom, The Middle East, The 9:30 Club, The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Harper's Ferry, The Tennessee Theater, Club Passim, and Hard Rock Boston among others.
