Sheri Miller has released two critically acclaimed EP’s, and several singles as a solo artist. Her first EP, “Mantra” featured the popular songs, “Right Here, Right Now” and “All He Has To Do,” which have been covered at thousands of weddings. The success of this EP helped land Sheri on Music Connection’s list of “Hot 100 Unsigned Artists,” and receive airplay on prestigious radio station KCRW. Her second EP, “Winning Hand,” was produced and mixed by Kevin Killen (U2, Peter Gabriel). One of Sheri’s singles, “I Could Love You Still,” produced by Will Lee, features the legendary Steve Cropper on guitar, Paul Shaffer on organ, Will on bass, Shawn Pelton on drums, and Tabitha Fair and Will on harmonies. Sheri also was a member of The Delilahs, a four-part vocal harmony group that signed with Sony Music, produced by Marcus Hummon (Dixie Chicks, Rascall Flatts).

Sheri has co-written songs with Grammy-Award winning songwriters J.D. Souther (Eagles), Al Anderson (NRBQ), Marcus Hummon, Jill Sobule, Shawn Mullins, Tony Scalzo (Fastball), Lauren Christy (The Matrix), Keith Follese (Katy Perry), Maia Sharp (Bonnie Raitt) and Kim Richey, among others.

Sheri has performed locally before Lady Gaga and Norah Jones, and showcased a songwriter night with Lana Del Rey. She’s toured internationally, playing theaters in Ramin Karimloo’s band, as a duet vocalist, background singer and guitarist, and was featured playing her original “I Could Love You Still” every night on this tour, solo acoustic.

Sheri is working on new recordings in LA, Nashville and NY, with Grammy winner Jeff Bova, Will Lee (Fab Faux), Tim Pierce (Bruce Springsteen), Aaron Sterling (Sara Bareilles), Dave Eggar (Coldplay), mixed by Joe Zook (OneRepublic) and legendary Frank Filipetti, mastered by Randy Merrill (Paul McCartney, Adele), to be released in 2019.
