Bio

"From the first note, you're hooked! Alex Miller has an unteachable gift in the art of entertainment," says Jacob Lucas, an up-and-coming lyricist who frequently collaborates with Miller on "side projects." Miller himself simply loves to front a crowd. Born in a small college town in Ohio, Miller says he'll never get tired of the "rush" of entertaining listeners.

His voice projects something smooth and refreshing. It's reminiscent of a wave crashing onto the shore or a cold beverage after a hot and stressful day-- It's breezy, breathy and real. "I've been told my lyrics sound like some sort of amalgam of Jason Mraz, Dave Matthews, and Elliot Smith, some are playful (Mraz), some tell a story (Matthews), and some are sad (Smith).” Miller’s lyrics reveal an astute sensitivity to each move in the “chess” of relationships. He imagines the full range of players, from pawn to king, at one moment with foreboding, trepidation, disquietude, and at the next, amusement, humor or absurdity. Miller’s sound, deep and unique, stretches across a variety of instrumental influences from Phish to Queens of the Stone Age to John Mayer.

He came out with this first CD, “Off Season,” to a crowd of summer acquaintances in 2004. A growing audience encouraged him to invest in a major recording “Just a Dream” released a year ago, complete with a successful Canal Room CD release performance (in New York City) in August 2010.

Overwhelmed by the success of his CD release, Miller spent months self-booking and self-promoting a nationwide summer tour which took place (and was successful) in 2011.

This past May, a group of investors supported his working on a third CD, tentatively titled “Two Sides of a Coin,” to be released in late December 2011.

Yet, through it all, says Miller: “As much fun as it is to be a singer/songwriter, I still prefer the energy of a crowd." A consummate performer, he meets each audience member where they are and wakes them to their own rich journey through his sometimes gentle, sometimes futile, always honest story telling. Since moving to New York two years ago, he has played at a number of venues including The Canal Room, The Knitting Factory, Rockwood Music Hall, National Underground, and his regular spot--Prohibition. . Miller is eager to gain a fan base and get his songs heard "the old fashion way"– by performing them.
