Jacob Miller
Jacob Miller
A Wisconsin native, Jacob Miller left his hometown for Portland, OR the summer of 2009 via Amtrak; bringing with him only a suitcase and a Fender Jaguar guitar. After just one year in the city - he left to travel North America to study and perform music while working on various farms and ranches between travels. Time spent as a farm hand in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina shaped his devotion to the finger picking style of the region. Playing along with old recordings and locals in the surrounding areas of Appalachia, Miller delved into the inner workings of the music’s style and history.

After 7+ years of managing/leading a 6-piece jazz band and traveling to perform both in North America and internationally - Miller now focuses his efforts on a different kind of songwriting; with a different story to tell.

With an affinity for minimalist pop and firm roots planted in American traditional music, Jacob Miller crafts a timeless sound unique to his style and abilities.

In 2019, Miller will release a debut album which displays his abilities as a performer, writer and composer. Recorded and performed by Miller in a SE Portland home-turned-studio - songs and ideas come together to assemble an atlbum about love, loss, and learning to begin again.
