Today, Ted Miller is entering the Adult Contemporary charts launching his debut album, “Along The Road Of Love,” as part of a compilation of 14, mostly original songs, conforming very neatly within the genre. The magic in his voice combined with his tender lyrics, conviction and from the heart style conveys his sense of sincerity.
Ted has been honored in the United States Congress eight times and most recently distinguished by several of America’s top Military Generals as the lead vocalist for “A Tribute to America – A 21st Century anthem,” as well as for his service and dedication as a civilian in helping to support the families of out soldiers and veterans. As an American born artist, he portrays the diversity of the American people illustrating his own ability to sing so beautifully in so many different languages. Over the years, Ted has performed for many dignitaries from around the world.
Ted recorded and composed his first album, together with the London Symphony Orchestra in London, England, at the famed Abbey Road Studios
From there he proceeded to New York and continued to avidly fulfill his dream as a singer-songwriter. Landing a job in New York City, he worked late nights while focusing on composing and working together with other musicians throughout the day. Born in his hometown of Miami, FL, Ted was destined to become a singer-songwriter.
Early on, he would spend summers upstate N.Y. visiting his Grandparents, who both were musicians. It was the sound of his grandmother “yiyia” playing her violin that Ted found to me magical. He would sit and listen to her play on the porch of their home every day overlooking the Catskill Mountains. He would often accompany her to many of her performances. From their local Greek Church to Carnegie Hall, he would follow in her footsteps with her violin case in one hand and a baseball glove in the other. Eventually music soon became his passion.
By fall Ted was back at home on his parents farm in South Florida. By age 7, he was already playing the drums in his school band and participating in both his school and church choir. After school he would participate in sports where eventually he would excel as a tremendous athlete all throughout high school and college. On the farm, his father instilled in him a strong work ethic. He would often spend time working together with his father on weekends. It was from his mother where he learned to sing with such a rich and melodious voice.
After graduating high school, Ted attended college his first year in New Jersey where he received a tennis scholarship. A year later, he returned to Miami, Fl. where he graduated with a degree in International Business.
Music was the legacy that his grandmother had left behind. Soon after she passed away, Ted began writing music in earnest. Lyrics and songs now became of him while riding the tractor. Melodies would constantly play in his head. For he had been lifted spiritually by the sounds that once came from his grandmother playing her violin. Although he enjoyed being a farmer by trade, his music had now provided him with a higher sense of being. It was symbolic of everything that he had learned as a child.
Today, Ted can often be found performing for many charity organizations, most importantly focusing his sights on assisting the families of our soldiers and veterans. As a result of the September 11 tragedy on our country, Ted immediately returned home to South Florida from New York where he had spent time preparing the arrangements for his upcoming album. Together with his mother Ann Miller, they created a 501c3 Organization set up to help support the families of our Troops. It is his overwhelming devotion as a proud American to volunteer his time in addition to pursuing his career as a vibrant singer- songwriter and focus his efforts on helping those who need us the most, our Soldiers and their families.
Let’s nod our heads for a moment of silence and pray for the safety and return of all our troops, together with our allied forces, serving to protect our principal ideals of Freedom and Democracy while striving for peaceful solutions for the entire World to share.
