S&E Nashville Artist spotlight on Darryl Miller, Home Town Hero

darryl blogFrom the middle Tennessee town of Erin, Darryl Miller has been working on his music skills since elementary school. Miller began performing at the age of eight when he picked up the banjo after he got his first bluegrass tape. Miller has been working with Nashville Music Group since 2014 and has been steadily working on his craft and co-writing as much as possible to prepare for upcoming label showcases. A couple of his songs are on hold right now, but he wasn’t at liberty to express the details.

Miller has traveled in a weekend performing, family band from an early age. He played banjo, but eventually picked up the guitar.   “I bought my first guitar and began trying my hand at songwriting and have been writing ever since. My style of writing is a mixture of country folk and bluegrass. I like to write about everyday life experiences—nothing too fancy, just country life,” Miller said.

“My biggest influences would have to be Townes Van Zandt and John Prine. I was always intrigued when I listened to their songs and how they could tell a story by putting words and melodies together that people could really relate to.”

Working with NMG, Miller – at this time – is busy building his brand and working to keep things on a highly professional level.  For now, you can find Miller on Facebook and otherwise you can hear him or catch one of his performances at some of Nashville’s top songwriting venues.

He has been writing with some heavyweight writers and has his eye on the star-dusted road – which might not be far off considering the fact that several labels have already shown interest in Miller’s work.

With a love for country and bluegrass music and armed with talent and charisma he has set out to make his mark on country music. Keep a look out for Darryl Miller and the music of the small town guy from right here in middle Tennessee. The wait will be well worth it…when Miller unleashes his music on the world.
