Cellist/singer-songwriter Kristen Miller electrifies her antique cello to redefine the instrument in the tradition of folk, rock, and world music. In live performance and on her CD's Strange Little Valentine (2006) and Later That Day (2003), Kristen uses live digital recording to layer earthy cello timbres with percussion, spoken word, and singing. The result is a rich tapestry of harmony, rhythm, and deep melodic contour that Billboard writer Bobby Borg calls “hauntingly, charmingly, brilliant.” Named 2004 Female Artist of the Year by Jam Magazine, Kristen was also a finalist for Best Instrumental Artist. Both CDs charted on college and community radio across North America, with Later That Day (2003) spending a year at #2 on AOL/Netscape Radio’s New Acoustic Top 25. Her discography includes work for Theresa Storch, Museum of Science, and What Time Is It, Mr. Fox?. Kristen's music has been used in documentaries, choreography, and multi-media projects.

Seven tracks that are related only by the fact that they all have me playing cello on them, including a spoken word piece about a fisherman and an 11-minute trip through the octatonic scale.
