Welcome

Marie Miller

Thanks for taking the time to visit my website. Please take a look around and listen to the music. We try really hard to keep this site up to date, so if you’re curious as to what I’ve been up to lately, you’ve come to the right place.

At the moment I’m out promoting my new single "Cold". What that means is lots of radio stations visits. During a typical visit, I’ll meet some of the DJs and other radio staffers and then we’ll all go to a conference room and I will play some songs. People are intrigued by my mandolin and always want to know how I came to choose that particular instrument. (you’ll have to read my bio to find out!!)

Marie is now signed with Curb Records and her first single "Cold" is being played on Christian radio stations around the country!

Finally, if you find any peace or inspiration in the songs, email me and let me know. God bless you and thanks again for stopping by.

Cold jumps big on Christian AC radio

~ May 18, 2007 ~

Marie’s first single "Cold" made a big leap this week on Christian AC radio, moving up 23 spots from #61 to #38. Christian AC is one of four formats of Christian music that are monitored nationally. The other three formats are CHR (Top 40), Inspirational, and Rock. Of the four formats AC gets the lion’s share of the Christian radio audience, so it’s great news that AC stations are playing Cold.

Cold has been on the national CHR charts for 6 weeks, coming in at #24 this week. The total number of radio listeners who heard Cold last week was about 600,000; 150,000 on CHR stations and 450,000 on AC stations.

Marie will be hitting the road again to meet and thank radio stations who are supporting the song. During the last week of May she will visit stations in VA and TN and then make a trip through the central states (TX to Minnesota) the following week.

Marie also wants to thank you personally for your support of Cold.

Marie Endorsing Weber Mandolins

~ May 17, 2007 ~

Marie’s mandolin sound has just
been upgraded thanks to her new Weber Fern mandolin. The customized Fern, which
was designed to suit Marie’s playing style by Weber’s founder and President
Bruce Weber, marks the beginning of an ongoing endorsement relationship between
Marie and Weber.

 

Marie already records and
performs with a Weber Bridger octave mandolin (also called a bouzouki) and is
familiar with Weber’s commitment to sound quality and instrument detail, so the
fact that the Fern was playable right out of the box was not a big surprise.
“Because I was performing the next day in Nashville,Weber shipped the mandolin directly to my record label and it sounded and looked great.”, explained Marie.

 

“We are thrilled to have Marie
endorsing our mandolins,” says Mary Weber. ”With the variety of styles that she
plays, Marie will really be able to showcase the versatility of the mandolin
family of instruments.”

Logan Montana based Weber Mandolins offers a
complete line of quality instruments for players of all levels. Weber can be
found on the web at www.soundtoearth.com.

Marie on preliminary ballet for New Artist of the Year

~ March 2, 2007 ~

Marie is starting to get noticed by her peers in Christian music even before the release of her first album. As a case in point, this years initial Dove Award voting ballot listed Marie as a choice for New Artist of the Year. She didn’t garner enough votes to make the 2007 list of nominees, but just to be included on the ballot at this early point in her career is quite an accomplishment, and of course there’s always next year…
