Jeff Miller

Host, Bama Bluegrass

Jeff Miller is a native of Tuscaloosa who has spent his life in various musical endeavors. From high school choirs and a bachelor's degree in vocal music (University of Montevallo) to singing in semi-professional and professional choral groups and directing church music for 15 years, Jeff has always been involved in seeking excellence in musical expression.

The genre of bluegrass came into his life at a very early age, hearing Bill Monroe, Doc Watson and the Osborne Brothers on TV and through his parents' record collection. Through the years, Jeff has explored country, rock, blues, classical and folk music of various kinds, but has been focused on bluegrass and acoustic music for the last several years.

His day job is in a transportation company office, managing safety and compliance, but his passion remains the pursuit of music and the creative process. His goals in hosting Bama Bluegrass are to maintain the high standards of those who came before and to promote the very best in Bluegrass music as it expands as well as giving remembrance to the founders and developers of the genre.
