“a highly creative singer/songwriter, Mark has the same sort of charisma that made Garth Brooks an international superstar, and writes music that will sit as well with fans of modern country as it will with Country fans of an earlier age.”

”This guy has accomplished what most cannot. He has managed to independently record and release music that is as good or better than stuff released by big professional record companies. ...[songs] the listener relates to on the first spin. ...excellent vocals and arrangements that are a perfect fit.”

TOP 5 Album on the Pop Country Charts: In 2012, Mark’s new record, “Ain’t Life Good” rocketed to the TOP 5 of Pop Country airplay. With a European release imminent, the chart reports should be…ha…off the charts!
As an Artist and Songwriter, Mark splits his time between recording and writing in Nashville, Tennessee, and his post Katrina restored home in Covington, LA. Since Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, Mark has persevered with his love of music and writing, drawing on his life and upbringing in the deep south. With his first solo release “Ain’t Life Good”, Mark has melded his two music cities in every aspect. Mark recorded the music “beds” in famous Nashville studios, with Nashville guests and luminaries – musicians with and alumni of Keith Urban, Tim McGraw, and Faith Hill, among others. His vocal performances were cut at home in New Orleans, just a few feet from the Mississippi River, in the embrace of his delta swamp roots.
Coupled with big bold live performances, songwriting is the foundation of true creative expression for Mark. Mark has been steadfast in his trek to write with and to learn from the masters. Mark co-writes with top writers with cuts by artists such as Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, George Strait, Garth Brooks, Randy Travis, Montgomery Gentry, Toby Keith, Trisha Yearwood, Lonestar, Trace Adkins, Luke Bryan, and many others.
Mark submitted 5 songs from his debut solo record “Ain’t Life Good” to the online “Next GAC Star” competition, sponsored by the GAC TV network. Among thousands of entries from around the country, all 5 of Mark’s songs have gone into the Top 2 in the nation in the span of 6 weeks, with two of Mark’s songs reaching that golden #1 spot in the nationwide online competition. Mark was also awarded the coveted spot of “Featured Artist” on the GAC TV show “Next GAC Star” airing nationwide.
Internet and terrestrial radio stations from Washington to Louisiana, Tennessee to New York, London to Serbia, Germany and Australia are adding Mark’s music in an explosive show of support. Songs from the new record “Ain’t Life Good” have been included on multiple international music compilations. Mark was selected as 1 of only 12 international artists, and scored the opening track for the compilation for The Almighty Jukebox “Best Emerging Artists”.
For the 5th time, Mark Adam Miller was a featured performer at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival - the cream of the crop of festivals in the US. Among many other festivals, Mark also blazed through a performance for the inaugural Bayou Country Superfest in spring of 2010, sharing the stage with artists like Keith Urban, Taylor Swift, Brooks & Dunn, and Kenny Chesney. An amazing honor came the following year – the only 2 return performers to the 2011 Bayou Country Superfest were Kenny Chesney and Mark Adam Miller. Mark’s friends from Sugarland jumped onstage with Mark for his set to blow the crowd away. Sharing the bill with Tim McGraw, Luke Bryan, Zac Brown Band, Trace Adkins and others, the 2011 Bayou Country Superfest was a total success.
Mark has been performing music onstage for over 15 years. His former band Deadeye Dick has been responsible for selling well over 2 million records internationally. Earning the cover of Billboard Magazine, PollStar and over 100 other national and regional magazine covers, the band enjoyed great Billboard chart success with their releases, screaming to the top of the Billboard charts and hitting #1 not just once, but two times – with another 5 singles from the band hitting the #1 spot on the Billboard college and rock charts. The band has been included on over 40 hit music compilations across the world.
Love the work, seize the day, and blur the boundaries. The rest is just good southern gravy.
