Biscuit Miller

September 1, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Blues & Brews presents Biscuit Miller!
“Biscuit” Miller is an American electric blues bassist, singer and songwriter. He writes most of his own material, and has released three albums to date. In 2012 AND 2017, Miller won a Blues Music Award in the ‘Instrumentalist – Bass’ category.
Miller went on to work with Sonny Rodgers, from whom he learned a great deal about playing the blues and they recorded an album, They Call Me the Cat Daddy. It won Rodgers a Handy Award for Best New Artist, although he died before he could accept his award. Miller moved on to backing George “Mojo” Buford and Lady Blue (a backing vocalist for Ike & Tina Turner).[During this time, he was asked if he could step in for one night to play the bass behind another Chicago born blues musician, Lonnie Brooks. His tenure lasted for over ten years in Brooks backing band, including playing at the second inauguration of Bill Clinton. In 2000, he formed Biscuit and The Mix to fill in time between commitments to Brooks and they recorded Miller’s debut album, Come Together (2002). Miller also played informally with Anthony Gomes, before joining his band as a full-time member in time to record Sweet Stringin’ Soul. During his five-year stint with Gomes, Miller contributed to the studio albums Sweet Stringin’ Soul (2000), Unity (2002), and Music is the Medicine (2006).
By 2009, Miller had formed his own band. Miller noted that “I was getting on up in my 50s… I’d done all this playing with everybody else, and it just seemed like time. I can play this bass fairly well and I can sing a little bit and I know how to smile.” Blues with a Smile was released in 2010. In 2012 Miller gained his first Blues Music Award, whilst Blues with a Smile, received airplay on Sirius XM Radio. In 2013, Miller performed at the Daytona Blues Festival. Now 10 years later we bring him for an intimate show at Blues & Brews!
