Tamara Miller

Music – Austin

www.tamaramillermusic.com Leave singer-songwriter Tamara Miller alone in a hotel lobby for 60 seconds and she might just write you a song. On her 2008 debut (appropriately named 60 Seconds), the Austin-based, independent musician told tales in short bursts of imagery; for her follow up EP – Changing Lanes – the award-winning piano-pop artist lets her songs guide her journey in a different direction. The title cut from her debut, which was featured on the hit teen drama series, Degrassi: The Next Generation, was about making it on your own, leaving the past behind, and moving forward. “I believe ‘60 Seconds’ is a journey all of us at some point in our lives have taken,” Miller comments. The seven songs on Changing Lanes – recorded in Toronto – are about a more personal journey. “It’s about finding a new path, while staying true to who I am,” explains the songwriter, who started playing piano at age six. “It’s discovering what’s best for me and moving forward.” Juno Award winner David Martin (Hemingway Corner, Edwin, SONY/ATV) recorded and produced the new EP; Martin also performed backing vocals, and co-wrote the song “Something’s Gotta Go Right,” that was recently placed on an MTV show about getting teens healthy across America. Most of the soft-pop, piano-driven songs on Changing Lanes feature lyrics from the heart. Meanwhile, “Stay” was nominated for a 2011 HOLLYWOOD MUSIC IN MEDIA AWARD (Los Angeles, CA). Tamara attended the Red Carpet event at The Kodak Theatre.
