ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Vance Gilbert says:

“If I’d really known who and what I had playing and arranging cello on my album, I’d have been in intimidated awe, told everyone about her, and worked her to death singing. I can now only lay claim to the first two of these. Inventive, brave, moody, intensely musical - please make space in your brain for Kristen Miller’s redefinition of what someone does when they sit with a cello at their knees.”

Cellist Kristen Miller is a one-woman ensemble. She connects her antique cello to a live digital recorder
to stack layers of lush cello, spoken word and ardent singing. With a voice like Beth Gibbons (Portishead) and a layered cello sound like Zoe Keating, Kristen has created a style that Billboard writer Bobby Borg calls “romantically, hauntingly, charmingly, brilliant.” In live performance, her ability to connect with her audience and draw them in to her musical world makes her concerts intimate and memorable.

Kristen’s latest CD, Walk (2010), delivers impassioned, rocking songs alongside captivating instrumentals, and is woven with lyrics of longing, love, and loss. The record, which was recorded and
produced by Tom Eaton (Vance Gilbert, Ellis Paul, Melissa Ferrick), is infused with a folk-rock feel and African/Middle Eastern elements, and even features a compelling cover of The Eurhythmics’ Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This).

Named 2004 Female Artist of the Year by Jam Magazine, Kristen’s first two solo-CDs charted on
college and community radio across North America, with Later That Day (2003) spending a year at #2
on AOL/Netscape Radio’s New Acoustic Top 25. The song Kilim from her second CD, Strange Little
Valentine (2006) was nominated for a 2009 Just Plain Folks Award. Kristen is the recipient of several awards and scholarships, including the Zara Nelsova Cellist Award for excellence in performance.

Her discography includes work for Vance Gilbert’s Up on Rockfield (2008), Assembly of Dust’s Some
Assembly Required (2009), and for Irma Thomas' Grammy nominated Simply Grand (Rounder,
2008.) Kristen performs in coffeehouses and listening rooms like Club Passim in Cambridge, MA and
Barbez in Brooklyn, NY. She has opened for numerous acts including Anais Mitchell and Turtle Island
String Quartet. She can be found on itunes, CD baby, Facebook, and her official website,
