ERIC MILLER

Eric MillerEric Miller was born in Alpena, Michigan, but grew up in Detroit. He began seriously playing guitar at the age of twelve, inspired by all the great rhythm-n-blues and rock-n-roll of the area. Coming from a family of musicians and artists, Eric started playing professionally when he was sixteen. In no time he was playing some of the hottest and biggest venues of the Detroit Metropolitan area.

Hungry for travel and exposure to different sounds and music, Eric left Detroit in the mid 90’s to travel to Europe where he spent months busking on the streets of France, Italy, England, Ireland, and eventually Spain. It was there that he was seduced by the art of flamenco. After returning to the states, he was privileged to meet and eventually perform with La Dama Maria del Carmen, a world-renowned flamenco dancer who has performed with such flamenco greats as maestros Carlos Montoya and Juan Serrano.

After several years of disciplined study and performance of flamenco, Eric found himself drawn towards Brazilian music, inspired by the brilliance of masters such as Antonio Carlos Jobim and Caetano Veloso. Eric says, “There is so much ocean and sun in bossa nova and samba that it is always refreshing to listen to.”

Eric has toured the Southern United States with Karren Pell, a Nashville songwriter with whom he still writes many of his songs. He also tours with the flamenco company Arte Y Pureza, playing with the band Sir Sultry in the flamenco rock opera A Spanish Day.

Most recently, Eric co-collaborated to compose music for a documentary film called The Accidental Mummies of Guanajuato, Mexico for the Detroit Science Center.

Today Eric has found his own voice, emerging with an interwoven cultural style that is unique unto him. His music is diverse, and he continues to travel and play, collaborating with many great musicians around the world. Artist website: Eric Miller

About Jeff Dayton…

From the White House to the Grand Ole Opry, Jeff has been playing guitar and performing all his life. He’s a Nashville producer and writer and loves the concentrated creative scene in Music City. His hometown roots in Minnesota and years in Arizona earned him a the job of bandleader with Hall of Fame artist Glen Campbell for 15 years. He also found time to land his music degree, regional hit records and the honor of backing artists including Vince Gill, Willie Nelson, Toby Keith, Buck Owens, Tracy Byrd, Bo Diddley, Dizzy Gillespie, Gene Autry, Mac Davis and many more. Once arriving in Nashville, Jeff focused on writing and producing, but because of his reputation and guitar skills, was soon touring with megastar Kenny Chesney, Lee Greenwood, Sarah Darling, Tammy Cochran and others.

Jeff’s first guitar was at age 9 and he immediately formed his first band, The Emperors. From there, it was local clubs and concerts, paying his dues and working with musicians who became sidemen for Prince and Bob Dylan. He moved to Arizona, got his first Nashville song contracts and put together one of the most popular and acclaimed bands in the Phoenix music scene over his 20 years there. One fateful chance encounter with Glen Campbell led to his longtime tenure on that tour and set the stage for his move to Nashville in 2000.

  

Today, Jeff is an active Nashville music producer, songwriter, session guitarist, recording artist and educator and tours as a dynamic bandleader and solo artist. His show Salute To Glen Campbell is appearing nationally, as well as an upcoming tour Jeff Dayton ~ American Troubadour.

Jeff has been busy writing, composing and producing several albums.. all of them great!

 

 
You might catch Jeff on the big and little screen too. He’s appeared on three episodes of Hawaii Five-O and ten episodes of Nashville, plus a Toby Keith music video Honkytonk U. Here is the video with Tobey Kieth! (you can see Jeff playing the piano all through the video)

It’s only natural that with Glen’s retirement since his Alzheimer’s diagnosis, there would be a demand for his music to still be heard. Jeff has been answering that call with some of his fellow band mates in….

Led by Glen Campbell’s former right-hand man, Jeff calls on fellow alumni from the tours and together they share the joys and fun, the stories behind the songs and an intimate reflection on the pain of a great friend slipping away from us all.The show is filled with Glen’s hits, all performed by Glen Campbell band members and Jeff. A great show, if you loved Glen and his music, then this is a must see show!

Arizona Music Hall of Fame icon, Walt Richardson brings his amazing reggae rock show to Sedona, with special friends Gigi Gonaway (Whitney Houston, Steve Winwood, Aretha Franklin), Drew Hall (Cheektones), and more. This is sure to be an amazing rock event of music and dancing at the best club in Arizona.

I am a soul, living out and enjoying life as a songwriting, storytelling, and performing musician. At best to describe my music is to say it is derives from my own spin of Folk, Rock, Reggae, and added African and Latin influences.

I am self-taught and started learning to play guitar at the age of nine. The Beatles were my early influence in music. Later in my teens, and to this day, many artists like Jimi Hendrix, Cat Stevens, Bob Dylan, Creedence Clearwater, Sly and The Family Stone, Bob Marley, Stevie Wonder, Parliament and many others entered the picture.

After completing my BS degree, I began my musical pursuits. Coming from a creative family, this seemed natural to me. It is a way of life for me.

Through music I have traveled, and I’ve enjoyed the opportunity to meet great artists like Carlos Santana, Burning Spear, Taj Mahal and share the stage with bands ranging from Third World to Ziggy Marley.

From backyard house parties, to coffee houses, wine bars, night clubs, and concert stages… it is and incredible feeling to be able to fill the air with music and be part of it’s marvelous effect on people.

I am thankful and grateful to have the support of Family, Friends, Fans, and music… It’s a wonderful life!

Darius Lux Trio at SBGArtist Website: Darius Lux

When singer/songwriter Darius Lux left the confines of New York City to travel the world for a year, he didn’t fully comprehend the life changing pilgrimage he was embarking on. A multi-instrumentalist, producer and performer came back as a free-thinker and inspirational lyricist.

Darius Lux Trio

Combining his love of 60’s songwriting, 70’s soul, 80’s pop and 90’s hip-hop into a current mix of soulful, rock-edged pop tunes, Darius found his voice on his debut record “Arise”, took us to the streets of LA for his EP, “Time is Now” and now presents his new album, “We The Living”.

Darius’ music is a statement describing how we can take control of our lives. “For each one of us, life can be full of different fears,but we have to remember that fear is a choice. When we decide we don’t want fear and we have chosen to believe in ourselves instead, we find that we begin to receive the things in life we’ve hoped for”.

Darius is currently gigging in California & Arizona and living life against the grain – with every spirited note he plays; he urges us to do the same.
Take part in Darius’ voyage…
