Collin Miller & The Brother Nature 

Collin Miller is a 24-year-old singer/songwriter and guitarist wise beyond his years. He's a powerhouse vocalist with an undeniably soulful and honest approach. Born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, he found music to be a safe haven for him early on. A dedicated student of Soul, R&B, Funk, Blues, Psychedelia, and the giants of songwriting, he fuses all these elements to create a sound completely his own. He began singing and playing guitar at the age of 8, and is self taught. Collin was heavily influenced by the likes of Bill Withers, Stevie Wonder, Donny Hathaway, D'angelo, and many others at a young age. He continued to pursue music religiously and played in numerous bands. His writing style pays homage to that of his heroes; taking great pride in his lyricism, while never forgetting that 'feel' is king. 
 In 2015, Collin and the first incarnation of The Brother Nature formed. They recorded their debut album "Who's Got Your Soul?" and released it summer of 2017. 
 In late 2017, Collin joined forces with a cast of prominent Cleveland musicians and recorded the standout single "Side By Side". The band’s new album, titled "A Lesson In Love", was released on November 26th, 2021. -G.K.
