Jeff Miley has been featured in Guitar Player Magazine (winning that magazine's "Spotlight Award"), and has been reviewed in Jazzwise Magazine (U.K), Gendai Guitar Magazine (Japan), JazzTimes (U.S.) and The Himalayan Times (Nepal), among others. He has an extensive catalog of original music releases, and performs regularly at music festivals, concert halls, and clubs throughout the U.S., as well as in Europe, Asia, Mexico, and Canada.  In addition to plenty of work as a side-man, Jeff really enjoys getting involved in original music projects, and can be heard in this capacity with vocalist Inga Swearingen, multi- media performance ensemble "Vox Lumiere", the jazz-power-trio "Altered”, Elvis Schoenberg’s Orchestre Surreal, and “bug” (the original jazz project that he co-leads with his brother, James). He received his Bachelor of Music Degree from California State University, Northridge, with an emphasis in Classical Guitar. Jeff is a co-recipient of the Andres Segovia Performance Award from the American Guitar Society. He is a faculty member at Cuesta College, in San Luis Obispo, California, teaching both jazz and classical guitar in the applied music program, and at Cal Poly Pomona, teaching jazz guitar and leading the jazz combos.

I had a blast at the NAMM show this year.  It was fun to get to play a little set of jazz and funk at the Pedulla Bass booth with bassist Ric Fierabracci and drummer Chris Wabich.  The guys at Tech21 were kind enough to loan me an amp to use for this - They’ve come out with some amazing new stuff this year which I’m looking forward to adding to my arsenal.

Two big recording projects underway at the moment here on the home front.  I will be mixing the new “bug” CD starting in February.  It was great to have all the cats down here in L.A. in October for some incredible shows and a fantastic two days of time together in the studio.

We’re about halfway done with Inga Swearingen’s new album.  We’ve got 6 tunes recorded, and one more session booked in March to do the remaining 4.  Mixing will commence soon after. 

Happy 2014 to all of you!
