Holden Miller doesn’t take himself too seriously—but his music is another story. When it comes to singer-songwriters with folk and pop undertones, it takes a lot to stand out from the crowd, and Miller is up for the challenge. He creates music that holds a mirror to the experiences of other young people by approaching his songwriting without pretension.
Miller is able to push the boundaries of what a contemporary singer-songwriter can look like. Through broad, often impressionistic interpretations of anxiety, the passage of time, and love and heartbreak, his music finds a way to resonate with a wide audience even beyond his own demographic. He explored piano as a child, but found his passion for guitar after being inspired to take up the instrument by his older brother.
Raised on the classic rock of the 1960s and ’70s, Miller is the nexus of genre staples like Jack Johnson and Jason Isbell, intersected with more contemporary iterations like Alexander23 or Adam Melchor. The listener may find his clever lyricism sparking an epiphany once they realize he’s unpacked a feeling they know all too well, but in his own quirky and unique way.
Based in Los Angeles with roots in New York, Miller surrounds himself with a community of creators as likely to be found at house shows as they are to be playing sold-out iconic venues. He creates from a place of questioning and longing—sometimes even from the depths of existential anxiety—and his songwriting is his own personal form of therapy.
As his quickly growing fanbase continues to expand, thanks in part to an organic following on TikTok of people addicted to his covers and the samples of his songwriting shared on the platform, Miller is eager to continue sharing his craft with the world. Come join the party — everyone’s welcome here.
