Inspiration & Legacy
Cliff Miller has emerged as a unique and prolific voice in the Northwest music scene with a quickly-expanding collection of work defined by catchy melodies and poignant lyrics. Through hard work, commitment to craft, and consumate professionalism, he's earned his place on stages alongside names such as Lee Brice, Whitey Morgan, Randy Houser, Casey Donahue, and Jerrod Nieman.
Cliff derives inspiration from the small town where he grew up and now raises his own family. His talent for capturing the full spectrum of life's experiences in timeless melody and verse has attracted a stellar group of musicians to his side.
Matt Hartz originally came in to the studio to do some work on Cliff's early country recordings. Impressed by the songs, live appearances soon followed as did a blooming friendship and respect. Matt brings with him a world-renowned reputation as a champion fiddle player and exciting performer who can't stand still. He's comfortable on just about anything with strings so you never know which weapon he might choose for a given song.
Makaela Shippy comes from a long line of country music performers going back over 60 years. A competition veteran with a full roster of students, she's quickly become an in-demand performer elevating the high-end with melodic solos and vocal harmonies.
Fred Fischer, drummer extraordinaire, prides himself on precision timing and showmanship. A veteran of countless stages and genres, his contributions to the band include song composition, structure, and business acumen. It's a good thing Fred is a celebrated drum instructor with his own recording studio since his performances inspire so many drummers-to-be.
Alf de Varona, on bass guitar, also has a long list of musical accomplishments, many of them with bandmate Fred Fischer. Dedicated to engaging the audience during performances, Alf will often be found at the front of the stage leading sing alongs, encouraging dancing, and making sure the energy level never drops below 500%.
It all ads up to an experienced lineup of committed professional musicians who deliver the goods on time every time. Attend a performance soon or book the band today and see for yourself!
