Eden native, Jacob Miller, who recently performed on NBC’s hit series, The Voice will perform September 20 at THELMA.
During the blind audition phase on The Voice, he earned a three-chair turnaround singing “The Times They are A Changin” by Bob Dylan. Jacob chose Nick Jonas to be his coach and won his “Battle Round.”
Now living in Portland, Oregon, Miller is making his way back home to perform his original folk music. The concert will be outside in front of THELMA with limited capacity to ensure social distancing.
Wisconsin native Jacob Miller left his hometown for Portland, OR the summer of 2009 via Amtrak, bringing with him only a suitcase and an electric guitar. After one year in the city he left to travel North America, both to study and perform music while working on various farms and ranches between travels. Time spent as a farm hand in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina shaped his devotion to the finger-picking style of the region. Spending countless hours playing alongside vintage recordings and with local old-timers in the surrounding areas of Appalachia, Miller delved into the inner workings of the music’s style and history.
After 7 years leading a jazz sextet and performing both internationally and throughout North America, Miller now focuses his efforts on a different kind of songwriting and storytelling. Whether it be playing for thousands at Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall or for 5 people in a Midwest living room, Jacob’s passion, voice and laid-back demeanor create an intimate connection with audiences far and wide.
With an affinity for minimalist pop and firm roots planted in American traditional music, Jacob Miller crafts a timeless sound unique to his voice, style and abilities.
In 2019, Jacob released and toured his debut record, ‘This New Home,’ which displays his abilities as a performer, writer and composer. Recorded and performed by Miller in a Portland home-turned-studio, songs and ideas come together to form an album that is honest and heartfelt.
