About

Derek Miller

Label: SOAR records
Singer/Songwriter, Derek Miller, was born and raised on the Six Nations Reserve in Ontario. His upcoming release, Truth For Mercy, is a perfect amalgamation of influences culled throughout his 14 years of performing. Blues based rock inspired by the likes of Link Wray, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan and Hank Williams Sr. is how his music is best described.
Dereks live performance strikes a contrast between the dark, soul searching messages in his music and his light hearted enthusiasm and vitality. All of this is presented with an air of feeling totally comfortable on stage playing music like he was born explicitly to write, sing and play.
Having performed at showcases, the occasional opening act solo slot and many show in his own right, Derek has been brought to the attention of veteran and well respected musicians, such as Daniel Lanois, Robbie Robertson and Buffy Ste. Marie. He opened for Buffy on a series of theatre concerts where he wowed crowds with songs from his debut five song EP CD entitled Sketches. In 1999, this EP won him a Canadian Aboriginal Music Award for Best Male Artist. During the same year, Derek moved to Arizona where he co-produced the Keith Secola and the Wild Band of Indians Fingermonkey release. This inadvertently won a Native American Music Award in 2000 for Best Independent Album.

Derek Miller CD Review

Derek Miller The Dirty Looks Arbor I try to balance the good and bad in my reviews, even if I'm not into the style. I don't like saying it, but the sophomore album from Ontario's Derek Miller thoroughly sucks. It sounds like a bar band...
