Michael Miller, veteran singer/songwriter from Tennessee and front man for The Heart Machine, has been playing music and writing songs for twenty years. Currently residing in Sarasota, Fl. and making a living as a visual and performing artist, he writes and performs original material for The Heart Machine and for his solo acoustic shows in the Sarasota area and beyond. Versatility pervades his musical performances, from the edgy, mid-tempo rock of the Heart Machine, to the laid back acoustic folk-rock of his Grateful Dead cover bands, to the intimate and rare music of his solo acoustic shows. Add to the mix a collection of local musicians who are always joining Michael for one of his musical projects and you'd have to see several shows to appreciate the effort that goes into making every show a unique experience.
