Josey Miller was born and raised in the Chicago area. The granddaughter of an opera singer, she was classically trained in voice under Dr. Sarah Stedman of Northwestern University—but in college she abandoned the operatic route and substituted soul. Josey sang with rock bands and musical theatre troupes in college and then at a jazz piano bar post-graduation before relocating temporarily to San Diego. There she performed solo and with a band at well-known local clubs and coffee shops and started writing music inspired by Joni Mitchell, Patty Griffin and Jonatha Brooke. Currently living in NYC’s historic Greenwich Village, she’s playing various venues around town such as the Bitter End, the Living Room, the Red Lion, the Village Lantern and more. By combining emotive vocals and poetic lyrics, Josey has her own style of bluesy modern folk. She also studied the American composers of cabaret and jazz through Mannes Music College of The New School.

Update: Josey was recently cast in her first NYC acting role: the ANN Morning Show, a digital comedy short for Will Ferrell’s Web site, Funny or Die. Watch her play reporter Madeleine Koch—three lines!—below (her scene, which takes place in the White House press room, begins around 2:41 and ends around 4:23):
