My name is Martin Miller, I’m a professional guitar player from Germany. For my whole life I’ve been surrounded with music and decided to pick up the guitar sometime during elementary school. During my late teens I decided to get serious about the whole guitar thing, went to conservatory for several years and later attended the renowned Carl-Maria-von-Weber college of music in Dresden. There I paid most of my dues in anything related to music and guitar. I got to play in a lot of bands with a lot of different musicians, an invaluable learning experience. After 5 years of academic studies, I finally received my diploma in guitar and music pedagogy in 2010.
Right now I’m busy doing clinics all over the world, guitar and mixing sessions and I'm a regular contributer at Jamtrackcentral.com. My first solo album was released via JTC Records in 2013 and features a lot of very cool players (Federico Malaman, Ricky Quagliato, etc.). I'm also a member of the Tom Goetze Band, which we released a great live-in-the-studio album with named "Bass Shuttle". Starting from 2012 I did my first international tours featuring my original music exclusively, which also led me to countries outside of Europe such as the USA, Thailand and Russia.
A while ago I've picked up work on a new band project that is going to feature Sebastian Lanser (Drums, Panzerballett) and Anton Davidyants (Bass, Impact Fuze). Along with that I also produced an album with Tom Quayle that is ready for a release in 2015.
On top of this, Tom Quayle and I did a duo tour in 2014, doing concerts and clinics all over Europe and Japan. Lots of more dates for 2015 will be announced via our Facebook pages soon! (http://facebook.com/martinmillerguitar)
