Guitarist and singer/ songwriter Derek Miller is a journeyman musician with eclectic taste and a knack for roots inflected rock. Born on the Six Nations of the Grand River, Mohawk Territory, in Canada, Miller became interested in music in his early teens, and by the late ’90s had not only toured with iconic Canadian vocalist Buffy Sainte-Marie but was also garnered a Juno for both his debut album, ‘Music Is the Medicine’ and sophomore album ‘The Dirty Looks’ in 2008.
Derek's 2011 release ' Derek Miller with Double Trouble’ took us to the heart of Native Americana romanticism. Derek used vintage tones and aesthetics of 50’s rock and roll with a modern twist, telling the story of a mythical man who has a blind moment of insanity and the events that got him to that point. This record describes in a metaphoric way, the trials and tribulations of the artist. His first single ‘Damned If You Do’ featured Willie Nelson singing a duet with Derek, which has a ‘Rez Dub’-like backing track, complete with horns to add some sizzle.
“Derek Miller with Double Trouble is my attempt to create the feeling I got from soul, blues and country records I have listened to. Hillbilly Soul with some Mohawk swagger.”
Derek's latest release on Gunner Recordings is titled 'Blues Vol. 1' is the first in a series that pays tribute to some of the best Blues Artists who have stood the test of time. Derek’s electrifying guitar work along with his dirty vocals, is like a fuel-injected storm that punches you in the face while delivering you the grooves that the blues are famous for.
