Biography

Born in Brooklyn, New York to a musical family, the Grammy Award-winning songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Marcus Miller was destined for a life in music. As a teenager he was classically trained on the clarinet but also had a grounding in keyboards, saxophone and guitar, all of which served him well in his later career. He rose to prominence as a session musician in New York and played on around 500 albums recorded by some of the biggest names in the music business.

At the height of his career as a session musician, artists such as Michael Jackson, Frank Sinatra, Mariah Carey, Elton John, Joe Walsh and Grover Washington Jr. all availed themselves of Miller's prodigious talent, primarily for his skill on the bass guitar.

As a composer he has co-written material with Miles Davis, David Sandborn and Luther Vandross and through his session work and songwriting he has rarely been out of the charts. Miller has also enjoyed a successful solo career in parallel with his work for other artists and to date has recorded more than 20 studio albums in his own name. He composed the film scores for 'Marshall' and 'Nice Evening' in 2017 and released his 23rd solo album in 2018 titled 'Laid Black'.
