Dee Miller is a longtime Minnesota musician who has shared the stage with Koko Taylor, Janiva Magness, Bobby Messina as well as local favorites Lamont Cranston, Annie Mack, Renee Austin and so many more incredible musicians.
From her early days as a child listening to her mother singing the blues around the house in Maplewood, MN, Dee has been a singer. She first started singing along with Dione Warwick and Aretha Franklin recordings as she crafted her skills. The sounds of Etta James, Bonnie Raitt, and Mahalia Jackson were part of a life spent singing as she walked down the railroad tracks next door to her house. During these times, Dee realized the power of music and what a refuge it is for her.
Dee's first professional gig was with the blues band "Minnesota Barking Ducks". She has also performed with bands such as "Liberty Street", "Bottom Line"', "Night Train" with her dear friend Liz Cummings, and several others before she started the Dee Miller Band in 2004. Dee is also currently singing with "Who Nu".
Dee has performed in many local music establishments. On a national level, Dee has performed in Chicago at Buddy Guy's Legends, and in Washington D.C. at Madam's Organ. Dee has also performed on stages in Memphis, San Francisco, Greenwich Village, Key Largo and Florence, Italy.
Members of the band include: Craig Clark (guitar), Eric Meyer(bass), Jesse Mueller(keyboard,), Mike DuBois(drums),
