Larry Miller Background information.

Larry Miller Biography:

On the first day of Larry Miller picking up a guitar, he wrote his first ever song. Larry says "I just knew immediately this was what I was put on the planet for" and he firmly believed  his future was going to be in Rock music after hearing  some of the guitar greats - Jimi Hendrix,  Rory Gallagher, Johnny Winter, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Gary Moore.

“For me, my moment of inspiration was seeing Rory Gallagher live.  I had never experienced anything like it. So loud, so gloriously on the edge of total mayhem, yet Rory was still totally in control. How could I not do this too! Like Rory I’d work under my own name, with a band. I’d do all the writing, singing, producing, playing and leading.”

Very quickly, Larry found his own Blues/Rock style, and has been constantly refining it. He is a guitarist, singer, songwriter, with a love for his music which is simply infectious.

Larry Miller plays Gibson Les Paul, Fender Stratocaster and Telecaster guitars through Marshall amplification. Larry says “Like many guitar greats, I have used Marshall for years as it gives me exactly what I need for my live shows and I am proud to be supported by Marshall.”
