With a career spanning over 25 years in music, multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter and producer Miller is still being heard each day on contemporary and smooth jazz radio around the world. His career has produced multiple #1 hits on the Billboard charts and countless radio staples over nearly two decades - including with his latest album “Unified” (2020) - a collaboration with keyboardist Brian Simpson that has reached the #1 spot on the Billboard and Amazon jazz sales charts.
