Artist Spotlight: Adam Miller
In these strange and unprecedented times, life is more unpredictable than ever for all those involved in the music industry.
A surefire silver-lining for most right now is the fresh abundance of time in which to contemplate, study and learn from all of the great musicians and artists out in the world, and in lieu of that we wanted to take a moment to shine a spotlight each week on the remarkable musicians we are proud to count as friends and showcase some of our favourite moments they've featured in.
This week we start with our dear friend and sensational master of groove, the wonderful Mr Adam Miller.
The Australian fingerstyle virtuoso built up his distinctive and unique style around solo compositions and arrangements that incorporate independent basslines, melody, harmony and frequent improvisation to create something consistently moving, musical and downright groovy to satisfy the ears.
Adam's recent release 'The Defining of Success' is one that has been in constant rotation on the TNAG Office stereo, featuring his friends Mitch Cairns and Dom Borzestowski on Bass and Drums respectively to form a lively trio led by sweet melodies and tight grooves.
His sensibilities are rooted in Jazz but take inspiration from a plethora of styles along the way, and over the years he has been seen to share the stage with a host of similarly extraordinary musicians including Les Paul, Tommy Emmanuel, Charlie Hunter, Matt Schofield and many more.
Over the years Adam has filmed some very memorable sessions with us on a number of our remarkable instruments, here are some of our favourites:
