Scottie Miller grew up in Minneapolis, Minnesota studying piano at age 6. He was classically trained until age 13 when he began studying jazz with Peter Murray/McPhail School Of The Arts. In 1986 Scott went to Berklee College of Music where he studied privately with piano great, Craig Najjar.

In 1988 Scottie moved from Boston back to his home town in Minneapolis, where he began writing, recording and performing live in the twin cities area. His noted work through the next 10 years includes: Touring with band’s Inspector, T-Minus Two, then Damon-Sicora, and The Sundogs. In 1998 Scottie joined forces with Big John Dickerson and Blue Chamber. He wrote and co-wrote songs on the 1999 CD release, “ARMS OF THE BLUES” (Cannonball Records), such as; “How Long”, When the Sun Goes Down”, and “When I’m Gone”. Produced by Jim Gaines. The band toured the USA and Europe including, Paris, Athens, Belgium, Budapest, Berlin, Switzerland. They headlined many top Jazz and Blues Festivals throughout the world.

In 2001 Scottie started his own band; (Scottie Miller Band), with new members; Drummer Mark O’Day, Bassist, John Iden, and guitarist Paul Mayasich. With increasing press, festival appearances and radio airplay, the band continues to promote their three CD releases since 2002; “The Other Side”; “Days Of Reckoning”, and the Scottie’s new solo release;“Livin’ Between The Black ‘n White”. (A beautiful arrangement of Piano/Vocal solo’s in a dedication the Piano-Blues forefathers such as; Otis Spann, Roosevelt Sykes, and Amos Milburn. Co-produced by Dik Shopteau, and released inMarch 2006, this new solo CD is sure to garner much attention from the blues marketplace.

In 2005 Scottie was blessed to have met the great late Johnnie Johnson. (The “Father of Rock ‘n Roll Piano”), in St. Louis. After Johnnie listened to Scottie’s set he sat in with the band. A month later he passed away, but not without introducing him to the Bo Diddley band, with whom Scottie performed numerous dates in the US, as well as performing with the Johnnie Johnson tribute band. Blues forefathers such as Johnnie Johnson, Bo Diddley, Henry Townsend, Robert Lockwood Jr., are keeping a watchful eye on Scottie’s piano playing and songwriting.

Vaughan Freeman

Yes, brilliant.
A perfect mix of old skool piano blues with a touch of Scottie's own style. Absolutely fantastic. Impressive artistry all around.

LoJo Blais

Sweet funky blues
Scottie brings some sweet funk and soul to these tunes. Scottie's passion for the blues shines through on this awesome CD. Its easy to draw the line between Minnesota down the Old Mississppi to the heart of New Orleans
-Live it, I dare you!

Bruce McCabe

This CD is absolutely great!
This CD has become one of my all time favorites. I'm amazed at how good he is. Scottie Miller is a master of the art. He's getting right up there with Otis Spann and Roosevelt Sykes and the other great ones. He's got it down. For all piano players, especially those who want to play blues, this CD is inspiring.
