Brant Miller’s 2020 release “Roots, Rhymes & Branches” reached #14 album on the Folk Alliance International Folk Chart, with his song, “Where Now America?” reaching #12.
Brant grew up in Croton-on-Hudson, New York, steeped in the folk traditions of Pete Seeger and Don McClean, both of whom he met and jammed with as a teenager while crewing on the sloop Clearwater.
After five years of practicing forestry in Honduras in the Peace Corps and in Alaska, Brant moved to Nashville to pursue his musical dreams, pitching his songs and getting songs cuts. He resumed his forestry career but never slowed down, recording two CDs with his trio, 2nd Nature, playing twice at the Ryman, and winning or placing eight times in the prestigious Chris Austin Songwriting Contest at MerleFest. Brant was a finalist in the 2021 Renaissance Artists and Writers Association "Songs for Social Change" contest. His songs have been recorded by country, folk, and bluegrass artists in the U.S. and Europe, including the 2020 #2 bluegrass hit, “Fast as I Can Crawl” and “Somewhere Under the Rainbow," which went Platinum in Denmark.
Brant, who now pursues performing and songwriting full time, lives with his wife Patricia near Nashville on five acres with over 300 trees they planted.
