T-Roy Miller, with his distinct guitar style, has been a sought after ingredient by musicians for their various projects throughout his life. Being born with a passion for music, T-Roy began his guitar studies young. He even had the honor, at seventeen years old, to be chosen as one of a handful of guitarists to study face to face with the legendary guitarist, Chet Atkins. T-Roy has performed on stage and in studio with artists such as Slaid Cleaves, Max Stalling, Eleven-Hundred Springs, Mark David Manders, and the list goes on. Having recorded numerous projects in his own studio, T-Roy Miller has become known as a music producer and sound engineer as well. His own personal music endeavors showcase his witty songwriting and his inventive finger-style guitar compositions and arrangements (his instrumental collection of Christmas music is a favorite!).
Many of T-Roy’s friends and fans became acquainted with him from his popular music concert/campout, Pickin’ in the Pines, which he has hosted for more than 25 years at his homestead in Pine Mills, Texas. Guy Clark, Lee Roy Parnell, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Billy Joe Shaver, Rusty Weir, Kevin Welch, Walt and Tina Wilkins, Terri Hendrix and Lloyd Maines are just a few of the artists that have graced the Pickin’ in the Pines stage.
T-Roy spends much of his time making and performing music with his talented singer/songwriter/guitarist wife, Candace Miller, in the hill country of central Texas. Together, they are commonly known as “T and C Miller”. It was in those same Texas hills that he met and became friends with ShAnnie (Shan Kowert and Annie Acton). Lately, T-Roy enjoys adding his guitar talents to the music of ShAnnie, whom he plays, tours, and laughs with regularly.
T-Roy is a renaissance man of Texas Music. Aside from his distinguished songwriting, T-Roy has made a name for himself as a musician that resonates through the hearts and rolodexes of his peers.
That's just some to be said about T. Just let his music say the rest...but to finish up with a thought from Texas singer-songwriter Brian Burns: "He appears a quiet, polite, and unassuming long-haired country boy...until he picks up a stringed instrument...then you realize you're dealing with a monster. T-Roy Miller has some of the most precise, tasteful chops you've ever heard...one of the most tremendously talented musicians in the great state of Texas."
