Bill Miller is an award-winning recording artist, performer, songwriter, activist, and painter. His music is a blend of Native American and western folk/blues traditions.

Raven in the Snow

"This is the first Bill Miller CD I bought. I picked it up because the album cover looked interesting--I had never heard any of his music before. But after one listening, I was hooked! There are driving guitar songs, and there are instrumentals that make you want to dance in a forest glade somewhere.

"This was the first music I had listened to from this artist. Trail of Freedom and Dreams of Wounded Knee are both excellent. Faith of a Child brought me to tears.

I love the way Bill mixes guitar and flute with an upbeat sound. He blends a beautiful balance of Powwow drumming with his words and music. I have since bought several more of his CD's and they are all very well composed.

Artist - Author: 
Bill Miller

"Reminiscent of his Mohican heritage, Bill Miller's Hear Our Prayer is a Christian worship album that is so intriguing that it compels you to listen. As he mixes his guitar and plaintive flute melodies, he seeks the heart of God in a fashion that is both evocative and inspiring.

Sacred Gift

"I was planning to give as a Christmas gift, and listened to it first. I won't be parting with this CD. Never heard these old carols sung better or more heartfeltly. Mr. Miller also offers his newly written carols. I was mildly depressed, but Mr. Miller spoke to me somehow as i listened to this Christmas album. The musical and vocal background is superb.

"This CD is yet another side of an extremely talented musician, artist, poet. His ability to touch your soul with his music is second to none.

"I had never heard of Bill Miller until recently attending several of his performances at a local Indian Market. I kept going back to hear and absorb more, and afterwards, ordered several cd's, including this one. I wonder how and why I could have avoided hearing of him and missing out on his fantastic music for so long. Mr.

"It's easy to see why Bill Miller won a Grammy last year for his full album offering of Native flute on "Cedar Dream Songs", and this earlier effort-"Loon, Mountain, and Moon"- shows why his awesome talent was so aptly recognized. This album of Native flute is beautifully arranged, full of melodies that will bless your soul and will refresh you in deep places.

Miller's themes of spirituality reveal the mind of a deep thinker, but he also covers more earthly issues such as family, the environment, and love.
