Shaela Miller

Although born in Victoria BC, Shaela Miller has spent the majority of her life in the windy southern Alberta city of Lethbridge and has been honing her skill as a songwriter for over ten years. Her affinity for the classic country greats of the yesteryeargives her an unparalleled disposition as an original ambassador of a new wave of country music. When asked to describe her music she replies simply: "Honky Tonk". But that’s certainly not all it is. Tear in your beer ballads, dance hall shuffles and dark alt-country craft work are all part of the package. With a voice that will send shivers up your spine and a penchant for turning a phrase that will make you relish in its simple eloquence, Shaela’s musical force is unabated and unrivaled.

Recent career highlights include a TV placement on HBO’s “True Blood,” a songwriting/production session in Los Angeles with Tim Feehan (Park Drive Productions), winning the South Country Fair songwriting competition and continuing to perform steadily while raising two children. A veteran of the stage, Shaela feels that her current band best represents the sound she is going for with her music. Guitar in hand, Shaela is joined by a band of very accomplished musicians. Currently: Tyler Bird on drums, Paul Holden on uprightbass, Ryan "Skinny" Dyck on pedal steel guitar and Jon Martin on lead guitar. With a full length release (Love Is Brave -2010) and a split album with local cohorts "Treeline” (Curtains -2013) Shaela is making her name across western Canada and parts abroad.
