Although born in Victoria BC, Shaela Miller has spent the majority of her life in the windy southern Alberta city of Lethbridge and has been honing her skill as a songwriter for over ten years. Her affinity for the classic country greats of the yesteryear gives her an unparalleled disposition as an original ambassador of a new wave of country music. When asked to describe her music she replies simply: "Honky Tonk". But that’s certainly not all it is. Tear in your beer ballads, dance hall shuffles and dark alt-country craft work are all part of the package. With a voice that will send shivers up your spine and a penchant for turning a phrase that will make you relish in its simple eloquence, Shaela’s musical force is unabated and unrivaled.
Recent career highlights include a TV placement on HBO’s “True Blood,” a songwriting/production session in Los Angeles with Tim Feehan (Park Drive Productions), winning the South Country Fair songwriting competition and continuing to perform steadily while raising two children. A veteran of the stage, Shaela feels that her current band best represents the sound she is going for with her music. Guitar in hand, Shaela is joined by a band of very accomplished musicians. Currently: Tyler Bird on drums, Paul Holden on upright bass, Ryan "Skinny" Dyck on pedal steel guitar and Evan Uschenko on lead guitar. With a full length release (Love Is Brave - 2010) and a split album with local cohorts "Treeline” (Curtains - 2013) Shaela is making her name across western Canada and parts abroad. - via www.shaelamiller.com
