Justin Miller, guitar and mandolin: Home

 

Justin's most recent album, "Angelina", includes 14 Latin instrumental pieces featuring Justin on piano, organ, synths, guitars and mandolins.

"Angelina" is available on iTunes and Amazon and at CD Baby for the round, silvery CD...

... but, please note that "Angelina" is not listed under "Justin Miller" but under "JUD MILLER" simply because — as an all-Latin project — it is utterly unlike the hundreds of concerts Justin gave over the 25 years on stage.

 

JUSTIN MILLER

Retired from live performance since mid-2013, Justin's shows featured virtuoso guitar performances in a variety of styles including bossa nova, Celtic and classical. In a typical concert, his first selection might be a Brazilian samba followed by a suite of Irish jigs, a Bach minuet, or Justin's unique simulation of bluegrass banjo played on one of his striking, unique nylon string guitars.

When performing on mandolin, Justin's concert repertoire includes Scottish and Irish fiddle tunes, Baroque classics and Italian opera themes, mixed with musical quotations from Beethoven, Grieg or Gershwin.

Justin's electric guitar set might feature his absurdly fast take on Les Paul's "Guitar Boogie", a dramatic version of the Faure´"Pavane" or a laid-back suite of '60s surf hits.

And then there are the wonderful behind-the-music stories about songwriters and performers. Novelist Pat Conroy called Justin "one of the great storytellers. . . an American treasure."
