I was wondering if any of you here are Julie Miller fans, I had heard of Buddy..her husband...but not her.

Then on the 4th I borrowed a CD from my Mother that came from the "Songcatcher" soundtrack.

Julie does this song called "All my tears". Her voice and conviction reached in and touched my heart. I love her voice....can't wait to hear more.

So I know someone here has to have heard of her.

any suggestions on a good CD by her ?

-----------------------------

Julie Miller (born 3 January 1956 in Waxahachie, Texas) is a country songwriter, singer, and recording artist currently living in Nashville, Tennessee. Julie Miller has been married to Buddy Miller for 20 years. They sing and play on each other's solo projects and have recorded a duets album on HighTone Records.

Her most popular song is "All My Tears", which also featured parts by Emmylou Harris and jazz vocalist Jimmy Scott, was written after the death of Mark Heard.

Miller's musical career initially took off after singer Sam Phillips discovered a demo tape by the artist and turned it over to friends at Myrrh Records. Miller was signed to a contract and recorded her first solo album, Meet Julie Miller for the label.

After the 1998 Omagh bombing in Northern Ireland, local singer Juliet Turner performed a version of Miller's song "Broken Things" at a memorial service for the victims of the bombing.

Julie and Buddy Miller teamed up with Victoria Williams, Mark Olson, and Jim Lauderdale for a European tour billed as "The Rolling Creek Dippers" in the 90's.

The Dixie Chicks, Linda Ronstadt, Ann Savoy, Lee Ann Womack, Emmylou Harris, Jars of Clay, Selah, Brooks & Dunn and Ilse DeLange have recorded their songs

Huge Julie Miller fan...of course, also a huge Buddy fan. Have seen & met them a couple of times, once with Buddy & Julie performing together, another where she joined Buddy/band in a couple of songs singing harmony & playing percussions. Her songs are soooo good on many different levels. After hearing a "Julie" song, as my friend likes to call them, I usually am takin' away to contemplate the lyrical content of the song I just heard. Not many songwriters evoke that kind of thought process for me.

The beautiful thing about her when I met her (in a little bar in Nashville) was that she seemed so humble & genuine. I felt like she was going to cry when I told her how much I lover her writing & performing.

Broken Things & Blue Pony are both very good....

Saw them both when they played with Steve Earle. They opened the show and also played with him. Enjoyed both of them and their work with Steve also. Great night.

Alright now! Julie Miller is real treasure. It's great to see her and her husband Buddy Miller's names show up on this site. I know that fans of the Brothers appreciate honest music and music doesn't get any more strait-up than this. Julie has got four albums out there, they are getting harder to find, the best two being "Blue Pony" & "Broken Things"
She evokes the kind of emotion that can just rip your heart out and leave you crumpled up in the dark corner of a room wandering how you got there. Songs like Broken Things, I Still Cry, and Ride The Wind To Me carry such a strong pull on who you are on the inside that after listening to her, I can't play anything else for a while. I highly reccomend these two albums along with "Buddy & Julie Miller" on Hightone Records. Also, anything by Buddy Miller, anything he plays on, or anything he produces is top notch. He is in such demand as a studio player/ producer/ sideman that the opportunities to see him live are few and far in-between. However, if the chance arises, you would do well to catch him. It's the kind of stuff that you will tell your grandchildren about.

Great Songwriter.

I've worked with Buddy Miller a little bit, and he is one of the nice guys of the biz. I consider him one of those Will Kimbrough allstar musician types that you can form a band with and instantly have a solid core to wrap the rest of the band around. There is a reason why Emmylou Harris, when she isn't grabbing up John Starling and Mike Audldridge and the guys for her bluegrass stuff, has at the center of her Spy Boy band one Buddy Miller. Phill Madeira, of Buddy's band on accordion and keys, is also a good guy.

The Spyboy album and dvd are fantastic.

I love Buddy, but Julie's work is a little too "religious" for my tastes.

Actually, Jpick, Julie Miller has 6 albums that are most notable by her fans and friends. She also recorded an album many years ago, early 80's called Street Lights, I do believe that is the correct title. She also has a compilation album that was out in the mid- 90's, don't remember that title.

Her albums are:

Meet Julie Miller - OOP
He Walks Through Walls - OOP
Orphans and Angels - quite possibly OOP
Invisible Girl
Blue Pony
Broken Things

Julie is a profound lyricist and one of the most beautiful and creative people I've ever met. I don't look at Julie as being religious, but she'll tell you she loves the Lord. Most people who have seen her live with Buddy knows she gives her testimony. She's lived a very interesting and fascinating life, seen some hard times. Julie is beloved by her friends and fans.

She once told Bob Dylan that his writing was really good and if he kept practicing he could sing good too!


KDogg, give Buddy's music a listen too, hell of a guitar player!

Buddy and Julie are the total package.

Not only does Buddy play some wonderful guitar--and some great old guitars, but I think he's one of the most amazing harmony vocalists going.

He's incredible, if he can't get the sound he wants, he'll build something until he gets what he wants.

Yes, Michael, Buddy is an amazing vocalist, lead or harmony... pretty darn good songwriter too!

Everything everyone has said so far about Julie & Buddy.

My Buddy Miller story. Buddy played here about 2 and a half years ago. I had my camera with me that night to get some shots. Well it just happened that his drummer Bryan Owings decided to get married that night on the stage at Headliners Music hall in Louisville, KY. To make a long story short, I was the wedding photographer.

A great bunch of people.

Great post! Buddy Miller blew me away at Suwannee Music Park about 2 years ago.He did a gospel album all the way through. I went and bought it the next day from the vendors there.
I think I will play it today.

Harmony and guitar at its best. What a musician he is. Julie is to and I thought she would be there but was not. Jim Lauderdale played a song or 2 also.

I was in the music hall the day before with Jim Lauderdale and Merlon Thompson doing a acoustic set that was fantastic. Jim said that Buddy,Merlon and Jim did the commercial by Geico that says "Even a caveman can do it" He said they had a hard time keeping a straight face and was a blast to do.
