Why this name?
My parents chose the name for me when we first met. I'm sure there's plenty of other Robert Millers out there, but it works for me for now.
Do you play live?
I play live everyday at work - I'm a music therapist. I love it! I'm starting to play out in the community more at some local open mics.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
I think it allows more non main-stream music to be heard and gives voice to those not supported by the record industry.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
I don't know. But I would be totally thrilled if I was ever asked!
Band History:
I have been involved with music since the age of 4, but I guess that this "band" has a history dating back to the turn of the century. At the time I had started teaching elementary school music classes and thought it would be fun to learn more about the guitar to use with my students. I wrote my first song for one of the first grade classes (After I Blow My Nose), and I've been continuing to play music and write since then.
Your influences?
It's hard to say - I listen to so many genres of music in my line of work that I'm influenced by all of them. My biggest musical influence, however, would be my aunt, who has been playing/singing and working on her own music for many years and is a wonderful inspiration!
Favorite spot?
Pittsburgh, PA is my favorite city - a place that feels like "home."
Equipment used:
Two Ibanez acoustic-electric guitars, a Martin Backpacker, a Squier bass (fender), a Yamaha PSR-530 keyboard, a Remo djembe, a plethora of various smaller percussion instruments, recorders of different sizes (the woodwind instrument) and other flute-like instruments, singing bowls, my voice, Cakewalk Sonar 7, an old computer condenser mic, and a Shure SM58 mic.
Anything else...?
Posting my music online is a motivation for me to continue to do more. I have a couple songs I'm working on recording, and some I'm writing - I'm excited to see what comes next!
