Ellis Miller

Ellis MillerEllis Miller grew up in the high country of Southwestern Colorado, the grandson of early homesteaders.   His father was an old time musician and many hours were spent at his father's knee, immersed in the old time, cowboy and country music.  His mother was an avid western historian, a passion which Ellis shares.

The first public performance was at the ripe old age of four when Ellis performed at a Christmas program at the two room country school house where his grandmother was a teacher.   By his teenage years he was performing for dances and shows, going on to study music and history in college.  His ability as a guitarist and songwriter opened the door to a successful career in  the music business.

Spending the better part of a lifetime as a musician, songwriter and producer has left Ellis Miller with an extensive resume.  He has played with numerous major artists,  attained the status of a respected studio musician,  songwriter and recording artist and participated in the production of  major  label product for Arista, Capitol and Warner Brothers Records.  

Currently, he lives in the Colorado high country of his childhood.  His recordings and performances bring his considerable expertise to bear in preserving the traditional songs that have become historical artifacts and in offering his self-penned interpretations of life and love in days present and long gone by.

Ellis also performs as part of the band, Vanishing Breed.  Western swing,  traditional and classic country have never sounded better.
