Jeff Miller lives in Nashville, TN with his wife, Debbie and toddler son. A degree from Boston’s Berklee College of Music, a move to Nashville, TN, and 3 solo albums (and an EP) later, Jeff Miller is hot on the music chart. In fact, he plays over 150 shows a year, touring the east coast and the mid-west. His music has received airplay at over 175 stations, in the U.S. and abroad. Miller still hasn’t found a regular band. But that’s fine with him and his listeners. At his live shows, he uses devices to record and loop guitar and vocal parts, creating more sound than some bands do. Using his voice, guitar, hands and feet, he is able to act as each member of a regular band – a singer, guitarist, bassist, even a drummer. You really should see/hear it for yourself.

To mark 10 years of looping, Miller decided that his newest album should be a live one. So his 197th show of 2008 was recorded in his hometown of Pittsburgh, PA. The result is Miller’s latest full-length album, “Can You Hear the Music?”. In 2013, Jeff started using tc electronic’s Ditto Looper, the smallest looping pedal in the world. He currently uses it and the Boomerang Plus at his live shows. Shortly after getting the Ditto, Jeff began his “Loop of the Week” video series on his YouTube channel. Each week, a new improvised piece of loop-rich music is added to the series. The channel now gets over 5 thousand views a month. In 2014, Miller’s acting career began, as he worked as an extra on ABC’s hit show “Nashville”, Season 2. He will also appear in episodes of Season 3. Jeff is currently working on his fifth full-length album. It will be his first instrumental album, and it is inspired by the Loop of the Week series.
You really should see/hear it for yourself. Jeff’s reviews speak for themselves:
“I don’t know how he does what he’s doing, but it’s amazing.” – Gary Burr, hit songwriter and member of Ringo Starr’s All-Starr Band
“His music is timeless. Like other notable purveyors of pop, such as Todd Rundgren, Badfinger or Ben Folds, Miller isn’t afraid to embrace and wield melody as a musical weapon. But instead of doing damage, the songs on “Seesaw” are infectious delights, from the Abbey Road-fueled ‘Scars’ to the sunny-side sound of ‘Can’t Take it With You’ and its contrasting lyrical sentiment. Miller even shows a new, heavier side in ‘The World is Out to Get You,’ arguably the album’s best track.” – Rege Behe, The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
The Pittsburgh Tribune raves, “Miller’s music is timeless. The songs on his newest album, Seesaw, are infectious delights.”
“Great guitar tone and songwriting.” – Phil Keaggy
