Ultimately, as the title suggests, this is a collection of stories. The feels may veer from Delta blues to a ballad or a shuffle, but it's all Americana-influenced tales gathered from family, personal experience, modern society, and political turmoil.
You may have seen acoustic artist Angie Miller performing her original music at clubs, coffeehouses, festivals, and colleges throughout the mid-Atlantic region where she has carved out her reputation as a performer and songwriter who knows "how to capture an audience," as Washington Post's Maria Villafana says. Angie currently hosts a songwriter showcase in Annapolis – “Second Monday at 49 West” – and loves being able to celebrate the wealth of talent this area has to offer. She enjoys playing pop covers in local joints, jazz standards at Sunday brunch, and cover songs for tribute shows. The multi-band special events, songwriting groups, and recording projects that pop up around Maryland one more thing she loves about being part of the fabric of this musical community. But her favorite venues are the small listening rooms that draw the avid music lovers who want to step away from the busy bars full of TVs and talk to get up-close and personal with the original music scene. Ultimately, this is what it's all about: sharing stories. Which leads us to the name of her newest release: Stories. The inspirations for the songs in this collection include her father's short stories about his childhood, her son's terrible twos persona, her daughter's move into adulthood, her own experiences as a working musician, and current political and social events. It's not a sermon or a memoir, but more of a reflection on her world – the things that she bumps up against on a daily basis. This is her favorite project to come out of her 27 years as a professional musician and songwriter and she's grateful to all the talented people who helped her create it.
Angie has appeared in concert with international artists such as Richie Havens, Nils Lofgren, Aimee Mann, Jerry Jeff Walker, David Wilcox and Marcia Ball. She has worked with GRAMMY winning producers such as John Alagia (John Mayer, Dave Matthews, Jason Mraz) and GRAMMY nominated engineer Bill Plummer. Angie is sponsored by Taylor Guitars.
