    Internationally acclaimed songwriter, performer and recording artist Gary Miller was born in Durham in the North East of England in 1966 and raised in Sherburn Village, a small ex-mining community 3 miles east of Durham City.

    He founded British folk-rock cult-legends The Whisky Priests (1985-2002) at the age of 19 with his accordionist twin brother Glenn - “the Joe Strummer & Mick Jones of folk music” - rising to international prominence during the mid eighties and throughout the nineties as principal songwriter, lead singer, guitarist & mandolin player with The Whisky Priests.

    He simultaneously and successfully co-managed the band’s entire business affairs with his twin brother Glenn and together they founded their own independent record label Whippet Records, in 1988, for releasing The Whisky Priests and related recordings worldwide.
