Soothing and adventurous, Kristen Miller’s “Cello Journeys” is a collection of seven distinctly different cello pieces, each designed to take the listener on a journey.
Press release by Higher Level Media
Richly textured and intricately woven, each piece sets a mood and invites the listener to travel to a different musical landscape. From the blissful, calming “October” to the Celtic-flavored mixed meter of “Away,” smoothly bowed cello phrases soar over tastefully layered gentle percussion and cello pizzicato.

William Huffman of Jam Magazine says, “Miller is a master of her instrument, knows how to get what she wants from it, musically and emotionally.”
Get to know the artist
Kristen Miller is a Billboard Charting Cellist and Shamanic Sound Healer. Classically trained from an early age, Kristen discovered non-classical improvisation as a means of self-expression. She began writing her own compositions which led to three solo releases, all of which charted on college and community radio across North America. After releasing the duo album Winter Loves Company (2010) with pianist/composer Tom Eaton, Kristen felt compelled to begin writing New Age style music.
Miller was the cellist on Ryan Judd’s guitar and cello record “An Open Sky” (2018) which won a Zone Music Reporter Award and spent over a year on the Billboard Top 10 Chart for New Age. In addition to solo playing, Kristen also enjoys work as a session cellist for artists like What Time is it, Mr. Fox?, Vance Gilbert, and Irma Thomas, and enjoys teaching cello to students of all ages.
Kristen is currently writing her first solo New Age instrumental record for cello and harp, to be released in late 2021. She is the recipient of several awards and scholarships including Jam Magazine’s Female Artist of the Year, and the Zara Nelsova scholarship for excellence in cello playing. Kristen lives on the north shore of Massachusetts with her husband and their teenager.
