Drummer, music director and composer Troy Miller initially played in a family band at his local church. As a teenager he reached the finals of the BBC Young Musician of the Year competition. Miller graduated from the Guildhall School Of Music in 1999, where he now occasionally teaches.

Miller has toured with vibes legend Roy Ayres and Don Blackman. To date he has worked with artists such as Jocelyn Brown, Omar, Mica Paris, Julian Joseph, Jean Toussaint, Roachford, Guy Barker, Kyle Eastwood, Marcus Printup and Gary Bartz. Miller has also recorded two albums with the award winning British born saxophonist Soweto Kinch.

Miller’s acclaimed debut album “40 Days” was released in June 2006 on the J’Noir record label. This album features many of the accomplished musicians Miller has worked with (and still working with) such as Jean Toussaint, Eric Revis and Marcus Printup. “40 Days” received further valuable input from vocalists Eska Mtungwazi, Xantoné Blacq and piano virtuoso Jason Rebello.

Miller continues to perform with various established live bands throughout the UK and beyond. He also finds time to fulfil various solo projects such as writing for the Prague Philharmonic strings (who also appear on his “40 Days” album).
