Go ahead, dare Miller to do something you think she can’t. Tour the country from house show to house show? Done. Write critically acclaimed songs inspired from books like Lewis Carrol’s Alice in Wonderland or Lindy West’s Shrill? Achieved. Bare her tragicomic soul while playing a grand piano? Just say when and where.
Miller, who has played prominent Northwest festivals like Timbrrr! and Upstream, has also opened for the world famous von Trapp family and shared bills with Damien Jurado and Courtney Marie Andrews, among others, displaying her prowess for honesty and playfulness, inducing laughter and tears.
In October, Miller will appear on PBS’s “The Great American Read,” which will highlight her song, “Queen of Hearts.” Following that, the musician will release an anticipated 7-inch vinyl in the fall. Miller’s songs have also appeared on WNYC’s Freakonomics and the New Yorker Radio Hour. But her dream is to write a Broadway musical, which she absolutely-freaking-will one day.
