I recently did a really fun interview with Linda Rez Real Sisters Talk Radio. I answered a whole lotta questions, and they play a whole lotta my songs.
It is also a featured show on Blog Talk Radio! Check it.
Here’s a song I wrote inspired by Howard Zinn’s “A People’s History of the United States”, written & performed for The Bushwick Book Club Seattle at the Fremont Abbey. It’s kind of a hoot, I hope you like it!
It’s called “Do Not Loiter in Downtown Ice Cream Stores” and is inspired by a comical but very real rule that was posted by a Massachusetts school board in the early 1900s.
I am so excited to share that Measures + Waits was chosen as one of SomethingElse Reviews top 10 albums of 2012 in the unsigned artist category, coming in at #4! With what I can only imagine is (at least) hundreds of submissions each year, I am honored they took the time to listen to my little EP and rank it among the highlights of their year.

On the last day of this year, I get to do my most favorite thing – play a show. I am excited to be performing in Tacoma’s First Night celebration. Check out the full line-up of musicians and bands, including Ivan & Alyosha, Campfire OK, and Naomi Wachira! I’m on at 9pm - full gig deets here.
Happy (almost) brand new year!

In July, fans submitted some fantastic song title suggestions for my “You write the title, I write the song” contest. I am so pleased to announce the first winner!
“When I Was Debbie Miller”
Submitted by Debbie Miller Hufford of Johns Creek, Georgia
Maybe I’m biased because I’m also a Debbie Miller, but I couldn’t help myself. It was too good – I wrote the song in about 15 minutes. I can’t wait to share a video with you soon!
“You should write a song about that.” People always say this to me.
So I had a crazy idea…YOU write the TITLE, I write the song.
This is one of the coolest things I’ve gotten to do thus far as a songwriter, so I had to share. On 5/22/12 at the University Bookstore, I (along with other members of the Bushwick Book Club Seattle), performed a song inspired by NY Times best-selling author Justin Halpern‘s latest book, “I Suck at Girls“. The book itself pee-your-self-funny so to write a song inspired by it was a little intimidating – especially since Justin Halpern himself was going to be there (we were performing at his book tour stop in Seattle).
He loved my song which made me blush. It was so awesome.
I am ridiculously honored to have been voted The Deli Magazine Seattle’s artist of the month for May 2012.
Thank you so much to everyone who voted!!

The video was shot over the course of 3 days in the neighborhood of Ballard in Seattle, WA. There were many onlookers.

“Between playful melodies, hushed vocals, and twinkling cymbals, this song pays homage to the sweeter side of love while still maintaining hints of reality and maturity. On multiple occasions, Miller harmonizes effortlessly with Leah Goldstein [who co-wrote the song], produces sweeping melodies, and builds her instrumentation to epic proportions, creating a sound much more complex in the details than its initial moments may lead you to believe.” – PureVolume
