ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Miller's fifth full-length album is a departure of sorts. Loops is his first instrumental album, and also the first album he has produced on his own. As the name implies, much of the music found herein is loop-based, and features the layering of "sound on sound" in many of the songs. Some of the pieces (like Veintisiete), have more of a compositional style to them, while others (like Harminchat, featuring Phil Keaggy) demonstrate a more improvisational flare. Sometimes meditative, and sometimes charged with energy, this is an album to get lost in, and to let play all the way through.


Artist Bio:

Jeff Miller knew early on that music was in his blood. He started violin at five years old, and by eight was showing a serious aptitude for music. It wasn’t until he was fourteen, though, that he found his true calling – guitar. At that young age he pawned all of his video games, went down to the local music store, and bought a used Kramer guitar. Soon after, he added his first acoustic guitar – an Alvarez – to his collection. There was no looking back.

Jeff’s aptitude continued to grow throughout high school, where he produced and recorded his first album with a group of friends. Later, he would attend his first Phil Keaggy concert. Revered among guitarists, Keaggy’s unique approach to the acoustic guitar had a strong influence on young Jeff. This influence resulted in his long-standing affection for combining live performance with cutting edge technology. The result was Jeff’s innovative live-looping technique.

So what is live-looping? Basically, it’s a process by which a musician can record a musical phrase live, in front of an audience, and immediately play it back in repetition. While this phrase continues to repeat, the musician can record another “loop” to layer over the original. This process can be repeated multiple times, creating dense, layered compositions mimicking the sound of multiple musicians and backing vocalists. Jeff, over the years, has adopted this technique into his core style, adding the elements of songwriting and expression alongside the technical prowess required.

In the years since finding the guitar, Jeff has accomplished much. He is now a gifted musician, a graduate of the prestigious Berklee College of Music, a husband and father. His live-looping technique has become ubiquitous for up-and-coming guitarists and his skills as a teacher and mentor are now in demand. In this vein, Jeff’s “Loop of the Week” video series was the first and most popular video series of its type on Youtube. His music has been featured on nationally syndicated television and CBS Sports, and played on scores of radio stations in the US and abroad. Most recently, Jeff has even found time to add acting to his resume, as an extra on the ABC show, "Nashville". For Jeff, though, it's always been about the music. He looks forward to continuing to craft his songwriting, instrumental, and producing skills, and connecting with people that love music. Come on out to one of his shows, you won’t regret it.​
