Our opening act was a brilliant young singer named Andrea Miller. The whole band was impressed with her song selection, with her bandmates, arrangements, and her jazz sensibilities. I enjoyed listening the little bit I got to, and the band enjoyed their even closer look." (Al Jarreau)“As I told Andrea after she sang The Masquerade is Over, she owns that tune. In all my years in this business playing with the best jazz singers Carmen McCrea, Anita O’Day, Peggy Lee etc., I never heard anyone sing it as good” (Pat Senatore)"Andrea will get to your heart even if she sings in the middle of a boat in the sea. What she does has nothing to do with being in L.A., London, Paris or whatever. It has to do with artistic commitment and love for every note she sings, and that's how great artists act, don't you think?" (IAC.com)“She’s very charming, personable and attractive and sings with a lot of emotion”. “Her delivery is soft and sensual, almost hypnotic. She sings with confidence”. (L.A. Jazz Scene) “Everybody’s heard the old standard, ‘Cry Me A River,’ every long, drawn-out sob story milked within an inch of its life. Miller as the vocalist gives each line just the right amount of pathos, verve, and snap. She isn’t the kind of singer to wallow in the pitiful aspects, but to turn up the rebound several notches for a refreshing take.” (AXS)“Listening to her music, it is easy to see why she was honored, her honest, touching lyrics are delivered by her strong, soulful voice in such a divine way that you can't help but be drawn in. After seeing her flawless live performance of the old standard ‘My Funny Valentine’, I realized that this is one artist who deserves all the accolades and awards she gets. Andrea has a captivating quality about her that commands your attention and earns your praise. Andrea is definitely an artist worth listening to.” (Indie-Connections.com)“One listen to Andrea Miller’s 21st century update of “Angel Eyes,” will endear you to this song all over again.” (AXS)ANDREA MILLER PRESS QUOTES:“A brilliant young singer” (Al Jarreau)"As my countdown to stage got smaller and smaller, I started to hear some marvelous music coming from the stage, floating through my dressing room window.

She is exceptionally expressive on "Angel Eyes," "Imagination" and "Cry Me A River." (Dee Dee McNeil)Miller steps in on the slow, dreamy “Angel Eyes.” Her delivery is reminiscent of some of the iconic jazz divas, like Nancy Wilson, Dinah Washington and Anita O’Day. (The Jazzwriter 2015)Andrea Miller, a soulful and sensual singer that delivers the truth in John Lennon's "Imagine," beautifully stylized her vocal with flute highlights by Ann Patterson that brought on goose bumps as a personal reaction. I immediately replayed this seven minute gem to enjoy it again; Lennon's inspirational piece was never better performed! A Cole Porter perennial favorite, "Just One Of Those Things," with his articulate phrases, as, "A trip to the moon on gossamer wings," and "a love affair just too hot, not to cool down," so unique and so "Cole Porter," nobody could write those but him, and Miller nailed them! During Miller's emotional vocal of "Angel Eyes," my wife came into the room to ask about "the utterly beautiful song that was drifting throughout our home!" (Harvey Barkan, LA Jazz Scene)“Cry Me A River,” features an exceptional solo by tenor saxophonist Rickey Woodard as he underlines Andrea Miller’s emotional urgency in this fresh arrangement. “Just One of Those Things” features Andrea Miller’s blues-drenched interpretation. (Paul Edelstein, AXS)“I first heard Andrea on www.IACMusic.com and was totally amazed with her song "River Road" from her “Alone” album. She blends three and four of her harmony voices together flawlessly in an emotional, tight and beautiful original song with such control that she stays solidly in the key of D from start to finish. Andrea should be well on the road to enjoying a wonderful career thanks to her special vocal ability to bring beauty back to music.
