Biography

“What is that instrument he’s playing?” That’s usually one of the first reactions to Nathan Miller. For the record it’s an acoustic lap slide guitar. Its roots are from the 20s and 30s when Hawaiian music was all the rage. Today Nathan uses it for everything but Hawaiian music (maybe one day though). One listen and you wont care what instrument Nathan Miller is playing, but you will want more.

Nathan Miller began playing guitar after hearing Jimi Hendrix’s “Purple Haze” on a record his mother bought him when he was 12. That Hendrix record would lead him on a search to find all of Hendrix’s influences. It was there, in the search for inspiration, that he fell in love with the blues. “I’d say from about the time I was 13 until I was 20, or so, all I listened too, and all I played was blues music.” Cutting his teeth on Albert King, Albert Collins, Son House, Charley Patton, and contemporaries such as Stevie Ray Vaughan, Johnny Winter, and Chris Duarte, Nathan began getting friends together to jam whenever he could.

After High School Nathan reluctantly attended the University of Minnesota where he was introduced to hip hop music by some friends in the dorm. Those friends he met where in the popular Minneapolis hip hop group The Oddjobs (currently known as Kill the Vultures). They introduced Nathan to a whole new world of music by taking him to house parties, and concerts. “They showed me the most amazing emcees and ever since I have been influenced by these great hip hop artists.”
