Adam Miller – Americana Singer/Songwriter – Live in the Plaza District
Adam Miller was born and raised in Oklahoma, grew up in Enid and later after adventuring out of state for close to a decade, settled into Oklahoma City. Miller relocated to Portland, Oregon for those years outside of his home state, where his need to explore and experience different ways of life was placated for a while, until the calling of home pulled him back to the land of red dirt. These deeply planted Oklahoma roots definitely shine through on his soon to be released EP, My Darling Oklahoma. This collection of songs pays homage to those very roots that run so deep inside of him.
Miller has been playing music most of his life, encouraged and prodded along by his grandmother and parents. He credits his Grandmother as being a big catalyst, buying him his first little keyboard. Miller said that as an artist in her own right she taught him to be passionate but to be humble.
Miller started gigging just as soon as he learned to drive and was able to get himself from place to place. While he may have slowed down here and there along the way, he hasn’t really stopped gigging since then. He put out a self-produced Alternative EP titled This is Sleep in 2013, but My Darling Oklahoma will be his first published singer-songwriter work to date. And while This is Sleep was heavily engineered for effect to create the final product, My Darling Oklahoma is a stripped-down project that focuses more on the lyrics and the song.
Influenced by various artists along the way, including John Prine, Leo Kottkey, Robert Earl Keen, and Jackson Browne, Miller has a love of many different types of music and music makers. – LittleOkieland.com
