Tim Miller

Primary Instrument: Guitar

Guitarist Tim Miller contributes his fiery playing and distinctive sound to a variety of musical statements ranging from jazz to rock. He can currently be heard on two self-produced CDs, “Sides” and “Trio”. Miller was profiled in Guitar Player Magazine, which characterized his playing as “pure melody consciousness...

Miller is a native of Michigan whose musical interests have taken him to Texas, Paris, New York and presently, Boston where his is currently an Assistant Professor of guitar at Berklee College of Music. He spent 1991-1997 in Dallas attending the prestigious University of North Texas Music School. It is here that he recorded “With the Distance”, an original instrumental mixture of rock and jazz textures. Miller spent 1997-1998 in Paris where he played extensively with drummer Aldo Romano. This led to recordings and European concerts and jazz festivals. Upon returning to the US, Miller joined the faculty of Berklee College of Music and recorded “Sides” with saxophonist George Garzone. He also played in a guitar quartet with Mick Goodrick. His recent performances in the US and abroad include performances with Randy Brecker, Mark Turner, Gary Husband among others....
