A Wisconsin native, Jacob Miller moved to Portland the summer of 2009 via Amtrak with a suitcase and a Fender Jaguar. Just a year later, he left the city to travel North America to study and perform music while working on various farms and ranches between travels.
Near 2 years later, Miller returned to the Pacific Northwest to form and pursue roots band, Jacob Miller and the Bridge City Crooners. After touring heavily and releasing 4 studio albums, Jacob and the Crooners disbanded during the summer of 2017.
Having played music full time for over a decade – the last 6 years of that with the Bridge City Crooners – Miller now focuses his efforts to pursue his solo music.
With a combined taste of folk/indie/pop, and the roots of American traditional music, Jacob Miller crafts a sound unique to his abilities and style.
Jojo Scott is a 15 year old singer/songwriter from Portland, Oregon. Solo acoustic pop in the style of Ed Sheeran and Daniel Caesar is her passion. She loves performing and her greatest desire is to share her music with the world!
