Steve Miller Band

Steve Miller was a mainstay of the San Francisco music scene that upended
American culture in the late '60s. With albums like Children of the Future,
Sailor and Brave New World, Miller perfected a psychedelic blues sound that
drew on the deepest sources of American roots music and simultaneously
articulated a compelling vision of what music-and society-could be in the years to
Then, in the '70s, Miller crafted a brand of rock 'n' roll music that was polished,
exciting and irresistible, and that has dominated radio through today. Hit
followed hit in an endless flow: "The Joker," "Livin' in the USA," "Take the Money
and Run," "Rock'n Me," "Fly Like an Eagle," "Jet Airliner," "Jungle Love," and
"Abracadabra" among them. To this day, these songs are instantly recognizable
when they come on the radio-and impossible not to sing along with.
Running through Miller's catalogue is a combination of virtuosity and songcraft
along with melodic vocals and signature guitar riffs. His parents were jazz
aficionados -- Les Paul was his godfather -- so as a budding guitarist and singer,
Miller absorbed valuable lessons from their musical tradition. When the family
moved to Texas, Miller deepened his education in the blues, meeting T-Bone
Walker and learning to sing and play listening to him and Jimmy Reed. Miller
then moved to Chicago where he played with Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf,
Lightnin' Hopkins, Buddy Guy and Paul Butterfield.
Miller, who has just been voted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame after being
nominated for the first time this year, keeps himself immersed in listening and
playing all genres of blues and jazz and rock 'n' roll music-American music. Miller
is also contributing his time to serving on the welcoming committee of the
Department of Musical Instruments of New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art
and as a board member of Jazz at Lincoln Center, where he curates and hosts
shows at both institutions celebrating the bridge between blues and jazz music
and early American music.
