Whether performing at the legendary Bluebird Cafe in Nashville or a small church in her hometown, Jill Miller is a seasoned performer whose music and stories will touch and inspire you. Jill has been writing songs since high school and singing her whole life. She has opened for big name acts including Loretta Lynn, Brian Littrell (of the Backstreet Boys) and NewSong. Jill was thrilled to sing the national anthem for President Bush and 11,000 people when he was in her hometown of Sioux City, Iowa. Jill just released her first single to national Christian radio, a song called "Worry," that she co-wrote with her producer, Jamie Slocum. "Worry was a title that was on my heart because of all the unrest and uneasiness that’s in the world right now with Wall Street crashing, businesses failing, problems in our schools, and a sense of uncertainty that people are feeling," says Jill. "As I was thinking about all of that, the thing that struck me is that no matter how crazy this world can get, God is still in control and He still deserves our praise, so I'm not gonna worry!"
Jill recorded her first CD containing all original songs called "My Offering" in Nashville in July of 2002. She has recorded two full CD's since then in Nashville, "Butterfly" consisting of all originals, and her latest project called "Christmas is Here," which is a combination of Christmas classics, done in new and fresh ways, along with some originals. Jill is a member of the Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI) and recently became a regional workshop coordinator for NSAI. Jill was a top 5 finalist for 2008 Best Country Artist of the year on IndieHeaven, a website for independent Christian artists. In April of 2008 Jill was named “Siouxland Woman of the Year” by the Quota Club in honor of her volunteer work in the community. Jill still lives in her hometown of Sioux City, Iowa, with her husband, John, and their four sons but spends much of her time in Nashville as well.
It is Jill’s prayer that through her music she can touch, encourage and inspire lives.
