Marie Miller,
The TVD First Date

“The art of vinyl is one that should never be lost. It is a precious time capsule for our musical memory, a moment in history worth preserving. It reminds us that technology should always ask the question whether something new is always something universally better.”

“My latest album Letterbox answers that question with a no. I love handwritten letters, because they are physical pieces of paper with ink spilling out into this beautiful, physical world. In the story of our lives the words we write can not be backspaced, a bit like real letters. Like those handwritten letters to loved ones, my songs were are true stories of pain and joy, of hope and loss, of all the things this broken and wonderful life has to offer.

I grew up in a small little town in rural Virginia about an hour north of Charlottesville. My parents bought an old house named Glenway, built in 1804, and planted in us a love for things that last. They inspired my siblings and I to hold on to the good things of the past, to love tradition and culture.

The music we made and the records we listened to reflect that. We spent hours listening to old songs from the bluegrass tradition and training our ears to play that timeless music. This summer I am touring across the country with the hope that each night my audience and I will connect in a real and lasting way.

I hope they get to know me not just hear me sing, because I give my heart away every night I perform. I hope the experience will be like your favorite record, one that you take out to go back to in good times and in bad with all the perfect imperfections that make the sound just as it should be, unspeakably beautiful.”
