Marie MillerAbout the Artists: Marie Miller

Marie Miller is a Curb records artist triple threat: singer, songwriter and instrumentalist. Signed to the label since 2005, Miller's original songs "You're Not Alone,""6'2" and "Fall Alone" resonate with listeners in every format from Triple A, Americana, front porch folk to nuegrass to country and classic pop.

Growing up in the Shenandoah Valley area of Virginia, the third of ten children, Miller began singing at the age of seven. At twelve she joined her family band, playing festivals and churches, with her sister Justina. The bluegrass duo was billed as the Miller Sisters.

In December 2013, Marie opened for the Backstreet Boys, Colbie Caillat, and the Plain White Tees at the House of Blues in Orlando. In June 2014 Marie played at KYKY's Uncorked festival alongside MAGIC! and Andy Grammer. Marie also opened for Sara Evans at "Rock the South" festival in Alabama in June 2014.
