Open Blue's leader, guitar player and singer, Joseph Miller, grew up in Seattle hanging out with his legendary guitarist father. At the age of 3, Joseph was gifted with a custom built miniature Kepplinger drum set. He picked up guitar and started writing songs in high school.

Open Blue has a solid set of continuous original material along with a few covers by Joseph's dad, originating from Moby Grape.

After 2 years of writing, Open Blue has just finished their first album. Joseph has been working in the studio with producer, Aaron Mannino, and just finished mixing at Avast! with Johnny Sangster.
