Miller is one of Colorado’s standout musicians and has been since finding herself in Denver back in the ’80s. According to her Spotify biography, “In 1984, she attempted to relocate with her two children to Los Angeles to further her musical career…but her rental truck broke down in Denver, Colorado, where she stayed.” Over 30 years later, we couldn’t be happier that she decided to make Denver her new home. Tickets are still available to catch Miller in action, so grab some tickets now.
