Palisades Restaurant presents Jeff Miller in concert on Saturday, October 22, 2016.
Jeff Miller knew early on that music was in his blood. He started violin at five years old, and by eight was showing a serious aptitude for music. It wasn’t until thirteen though that he found his true calling – guitar.
Later, Jeff would attend his first Phil Keaggy show. Legendary among guitarists, Keaggy’s unique approach to the acoustic guitar had a strong influence on young Jeff. This influence resulted in his long-standing affection for combining live performance with cutting edge technology. The result was Jeff’s innovative live-looping technique.
So what is live-looping? Basically it’s a process by which a player can record a musical phrase live, in front of an audience, and immediately play it back in repetition. While this phrase continues to repeat, the player can record another “loop” to layer over the original. This process can be repeated multiple times, creating dense, layered compositions mimicking the sound multiple musicians and backing vocalists. Jeff, over the years, has adopted this technique into his core style, adding the elements of songwriting, and expression alongside the technical prowess required.
In the years since finding guitar, Jeff has accomplished much. He is now a gifted musician, a graduate of the prestigious Berklee College of Music, a husband and a father. His live-looping technique has become ubiquitous for-up and-coming guitarists and his skills as a teacher and mentor are now in demand. His music has been featured on nationally syndicated television, and CBS Sports. Most recently Jeff has even found time to add acting to resume as an extra on the ABC show Nashville. For Jeff though, its always been about the music. He looks forward to the upcoming release his fifth solo album, continuing to craft his songwriting skills, and connecting with people that love music. Come on out to one of his shows, you won’t regret it.?
