Top 10 ESSENTIAL Albums of 2012  Acoustic Guitar Magazine

His music is groove oriented, highly melodic and just plain fun. Coupled with incredible technique and a knack for writing a catchy tune, Miller has everything it takes to be a world-wide success  GUITAR INTERNATIONAL

Approaching his guitar as if each of its six strings were a separate instrument, fingerstyle guitarist Adam Miller is a groove machine, creating a sound that invites comparisons to Tuck Andress and Charile Hunter  Acoustic Guitar Magazine.  Its this talent that has seen him play with Les Paul, Tommy Emmanuel, Martin Taylor, Matt Schofield, Charlie Hunter, Bruce Mathiske, Adam Levy (Norah Jones), Joe Robinson, Tony McManus, Jim Black, Ben Gillies (Silverchair), and the list continues.

Millers 5th studio album, Shifting Units is a huge offering of original compositions played on both acoustic and electric guitars, presented in two halves, Shifting Units  With Friends and Shifting Units  Solo. Shifting Units features the same original compositions essentially recorded twice.

The solo album features Miller playing solo on both acoustic and electric guitar with no overdubs, with only some creative loop and delay use on the haunting Prayer For Bel. The other half of the album features Miller with his friends, ensembles made up of Australias cream of the the crop jazz and blues musicians.

Shifting Units will be a sonic adventure of sorts for listeners new to discovering Miller. A lot of the time I play live with a band, especially in Australia, in a way the idea behind Shifting Units was to complete the picture of how I compose and perform music says Miller who is predominantly recognised as a solo acoustic artist. Drawing upon jazz, blues, finger-style and country, Millers incredible and versatile talent as a player, composer and arranger is clearly cemented on the album.

Australian Fingerstyle Champion (2002), Miller has played an array of International & National festivals including the Montreal Jazz Festival, Australian Blues Festival, A Day On The Green, Jazz In The Vines, and the Woodstock, Melbourne, and Adelaide International Guitar Festivals. He is a regular artist at NAMM (Los Angeles & Nashville) and Musikmesse (Germany) shows where he plays for some of the worlds most respected guitar companies and luthiers. He has also done two tours to Afghanistan performing for the Australian & Allied Forces.

Miller has featured in magazines such as Guitar Player, Acoustic Guitar, Premier Guitar, Acoustic UK, Australian Guitar, and Australian Musician. In 2013 his album Delayed was named in the top 10 Albums of 2012 by the US Acoustic Guitar Magazine.  He was also named on of the top 25 Future Legends in Australian Guitar Magazine. In 2010 Miller was named Guitarist Deserving Wider Recognition by US based magazine, Guitar International.

Adam juggles his time between international travels & Australia where he lectures in Jazz and Contemporary Guitar at the University Of Newcastle.

He is an endorsee of Traugott Guitars, Thorell Guitars, Two-Rock Amplifiers, Analysis Plus Cables, Seymour Duncan Pickups, and DAddario Strings.
