Miller began making a name for himself as a  country guitar player around Sacramento in the early 2000s.  In 2008, he  toured with the vintage honky tonk band, Rowdy Kate, in Europe and  began playing with numerous roots country bands back home as his  reputation grew.  Miller also began earning songwriter credits,  contributing two original songs to Rowdy Kate’s 2007 EP.

In  2010, Miller formed the rockabilly trio Twilight Drifters as the  guitarist and lead singer.  The Twilight Drifters would earn bill  credits that include the Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Festival, The  Rockabilly Extravaganza, and the Redwood Coast Music Festival, and share  marquis with such names as The Cherry Popping Daddies, Big Bad Voodoo  Daddy, Big Sandy and His Fly-Rite Boys, and Deke Dickerson.  The  Twilight Drifters recorded three albums including numerous original  songs by Miller, and were nominated for an Ameripolitan Award in 2018.

In  2015, Miller’s love for western swing music led to him co-found the  trio Sactown Playboys with Olen Dillingham (student of Tiny Moore  himself) and Zack Sapunor (Hot Club of Cowtown) paying homage to legends  such as Bob Wills, Billy Jack Wills, Les Paul, and Jimmie Rivers.  In  2018, Miller was inducted in the Sacramento Western Swing Society Hall  of Fame, for his work with the trio, including a self-titled album that  made number 2 on western swing aficionado Mike Gross’s top ten albums of  2019.

Through  the years, Miller has shared stages with country, western swing, blues,  and rockabilly legends Biff Adam, Jimmy Latrell, Bud Duncan, Bobby  Black, “Little” Charlie Baty, “Big Sandy” Robert Williams, Al Hendrix,  Sleepy LaBeef, and Deke Dickerson.  He is also a two-time featured  artist at Deke Dickerson’s Guitar Geek Festival at the 2016 and 2018  Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Festival.
