LORETTA'S ARTIST OF WEEK 8/17/15
Daniel Miller is a singer-songwriter with a penchant for centering his music on locales that inspire him: “My goal is to take a region that I love and write songs about that place. My focus isn’t on limiting a record to fit into a specific bin on a store shelf; it’s to tell a story. So, while I’ve been labeled an ‘Alt-Country’ or ‘Americana’ artist, I don’t let that influence whatever project I’m working on at the moment.”
Daniel’s new album, East Tennessee (May 2015), has been described as a love letter to the region where he was raised. A mix of original compositions and cover songs by artists he admires, the album is poised to be his most important work. Joining Daniel on the album are members of his touring band (The High Life), as well as Grammy award-winning members of Waylon Jennings’ band and Jamey Johnson’s band, among others.
Daniel’s songs have received rotation on several Country and Americana radio stations across the United States and internationally on BBC 6. He has had the opportunity to open for various national touring acts including: Jamey Johnson, Lukas Nelson, Dick Dale, The V-Roys, Sunny Sweeney, and Lady Antebellum; in some of America’s most beloved performance venues.
