Sheri Miller was born in an extremely musical home in Long Island, New York. Her mother was an opera singer and classical pianist, while her uncle a recording engineer. Sheri began taking classical piano lessons at age 7, but rebelled by composing her own original songs, about profound love and eternity. She’d composed dozens of full songs, complete with music & lyrics, by age 8, while singing along with Ella Fitzgerald, Etta James, and The Beatles.
When Sheri was singing in local Philly blues bands, writing songs secretly in her bedroom, studying jazz piano, and majoring in English & Poetry at UPenn, she experienced an incredible coincidence. Sheri began dreaming of a Casio Keyboard over many months, to more easily write songs in her bedroom, instead of walking 20 minutes downtown to the jazz piano practice room. One dreamy Sunday morning, after an especially vivid keyboard dream, Sheri was inspired to take an alternate, nature-filled scenic path to the library, instead of her usual straight path. She passed a 1-day church sale. To her amazement, she saw and bought the exact same buzzing Casio keyboard, with Nintendo charger, for $20, she’d dreamed of the night before. This “gentle” push and “tiny miracle” naturally opened and gently nudged Sheri to creating songs on her new keyboard everyday, awakening her deep artistry. She says “Since then I believe coincidences are just visible lines in our destiny.”
Sheri further polished her artistry and songwriting voice in NYC. Upon releasing her critically-acclaimed EP “Mantra,” she was named one of Music Connection’s “Hot 100 Unsigned Artists,” and played on esteemed radio stations KCRW & WXPN. “Mantra” featured “Right Here, Right Now,” & “All He Has To Do,” songs whose sheet music has sold to thousands of brides for weddings. Sheri then joined a 4-part vocal harmony group in Nashville, The Delilahs, which signed to Sony Music. Sheri co-wrote songs with Grammy-Award winning songwriters Marcus Hummon (Dixie Chicks), J.D. Souther (Eagles), Al Anderson (NRBQ), Jill Sobule, Shawn Mullins, Tony Scalzo (Fastball), Lauren Christy (The Matrix), Keith Follese (Katy Perry), Kim Richey, and other hit songwriters.
Upon leaving the group, Sheri released her critically-acclaimed EP “Winning Hand,” produced by Kevin Killen (U2, Peter Gabriel) and recorded a new song, “I Could Love You Still,” produced by Will Lee. It featured legendaries Steve Cropper on guitar, Paul Shaffer on organ, Will on bass, Shawn Pelton on drums, Tabitha Fair on bgvx, and mixed by Frank Filipetti. Sheri next embarked on an international tour of 300-1,000 seaters, featured as a duet & background vocalist and guitarist, in Ramin Karimloo’s band, travelling on a tour bus with 9 guys. Sheri played her original song “I Could Love You Still” every night on this tour, solo acoustic.
Sheri then released 3 original holiday & Valentine’s Day songs, a Beatles cover of “In My Life” and was a featured TV musical guest on PBS show, “One On One With Steve Adubato.” Sheri is now recording her new record in LA, Nashville & NY, with Jeff Bova (Herbie Hancock), Tim Pierce (Adele), Will Lee, Aaron Sterling (Sara Bareilles, John Mayer) and Dave Eggar (Coldplay), to be released in 2018.
