By Stevie Connor.
American Songwriter, Producer, and recording artist, Jen Miller, contacted The Sound Cafe about her song 'Throw Me In The Lake', we were intrigued by her approach, we wanted to know more, Jen said , " I posted a snippet of me playing it on the banjo on Facebook as I was writing it, and it went viral. Since the release last Friday, numerous of your readership suggested I send it over to you for consideration. Thank you so much for your time and all that you do to share good music. Appreciate you so much."
We listened, we LOVE the track, and the artist, we think you will too !
Jen Miller found her passion for songwriting and producing at Grammy-winning House Studios and began developing her unique sound as an artist. She’s shared the stage from Ohio to Edinburgh with Twenty One Pilots, Ed Sheeran, Passenger, Young the Giant, and Shovels & Rope, and her music has been featured in the Washington Post, NPR, Women’s Health, and Modern Luxury.
In 2020, Miller was featured on Universal Music Group’s 100% Her album — the first ever album created, mixed, and mastered entirely by women. Her 2019 self-produced EP Blue Earth charted on the United States iTunes Pop charts for a full week next to Lizzo and Maggie Rogers. A multi-genre creator, her 2019 feature on Yellopain’s track Last Time, has racked up over 6M views on YouTube alone.
Miller built her fanbase organically, online and on the road. Inspired by artists Amy Winehouse, Lauryn Hill, and Prince, Jen’s sound is hard to pin down or box up, but her steadfast soulfulness and ingenious, quirky wordplay engage audiences around the world with listeners in Australia, the United Kingdom, France, and the United States.
While working in political communications in D.C., Miller continued her work in human rights and feminist political advocacy. Miller is responsible for launching Girl Gang Music — an online community and network to support women and gender non-conforming folk within the music industry.
In February 2021, Jen released a self produced, mixed, and mastered project, Waiting, a reflection and capsule of quarantine and "whatever the fuck collective trauma we are all going through." To make the project, she wrote and produced a song alone (one per day) for all of January 2021. She followed this with self produced EP titled Please Come Back To Tennessee in October 2021.
