      Bio

      A naturally gifted musician, Byron Miller developed an interest in keyboards at the tender age of 5, but seriously took on a keen appreciation on playing bass as a high schooler in Detroit. Self-taught, he sat for hours with his bass learning his craft. He became so intimately attuned to his instrument that he'd play until he could feel the accuracy of the chords-'till the vibration of each note of the chords rang true. His dilligence paid off when at 18yers old he was asked to join Roy Ayers Ubiquity. One night in Seattle, Ndugu Chancler, drummer for the Santana Band, invited Carlos Santana to view Miller while he was playing with Ayers. Carlos subsequently recruited Miller to play on his "Amigos" album. The ensuing friendship with Ndugu Chancler was indeed fortunate, as he next introduced Miller to George Duke. The three of them formed the George Duke Band and Miller feels honored to have appeared on 14 of Duke's albums over the past 20 years. Miller has recorded and toured with the Crusaders, Herbie Hancock, Chaka Khan, Marvin Gaye and Whitney Houston. He subsequently joined Luther Vandross' band and was a mainstay of his touring unit for 15years.

      Byron has appeared on some of Vandross's best selling releases, including "Your Secret Love." Miller and Vandross teamed up to co-author a number of tunes. "I'll Come By', the title track of Miller's CD, co-written with Vandross was one of the last written by Vandross before his debilitating stroke. Miller recalls the experience as a classic example of Luther's genius, "He wrote that beautiful song out on a napkin-a napkin! then we went into my studio, recorded it and loved it!" Miller reflects, "I've loved playing Luther's music and learned from him a lot about what it takes to write an irresistible melody".

      For the first time, on his latest release, I'll Come By" Miller was able to fully display his skills as a keyboardist. "I'll Come By" features Luther Vandross, Rachelle Farrell, Ellis Hall, George Duke and Stanley Clarke. On selected tracks Miller plays every instrument himself.

      Always one to stay contemporary and ahead of the game, miller recently toured with Jennifer Lopez, playing keyboards and bass for her live appearance on NBC's "Today Show". He has also played with Chris Brown, Jaheim in recent live appearances, and done sessions with India Arie and Natashia Benefield.

      Byron Miller is grateful for his illustrious career he's had thus far, yet he's currently on a mission to take it to a higher level than ever before. Be on the lookout for him...
