Scottie Miller, (also known as Scottie "Bones" Miller) is an American pianist and singer-songwriter born in Minneapolis, Minnesota. His musical style is a combination of blues, americana, soul, funk and jazz. "Sounds like Dr. John meets The Band at Bruce Springsteen's house. Highly recommended." Tom Hyslop - Blues Revue Magazine. (Quite the comparison, and he backs it up with high energy performance, creative song writing, dramatic lyrics and impeccable piano playing.)

He performs worldwide as a solo-artist, or with the incredibly funky "SMB" (Scottie Miller Band), (which features drummer Mark O'Day, guitarist Joe Cruz, and bassist Kevin Rowe). Recent theater performances find Scottie adding string quartet to the mix, further breaking the boundaries of style and genre. This "blues-pianist" shows again and again how versatile his music can be with blues, jazz, classical, funk and soul influences that blend together seamlessly.

Scottie is also the touring keyboardist for two-time Grammy nominated singer-songwriter Ruthie Foster. (2008-present). "DVD Of The Year" 2012 BMA's - ("LIVE AT ANTONES" - Ruthie Foster).

He was inducted in to the MN Blues Hall of Fame in 2008 for contributions in blues music literature for his keyboard instructional book and CD titled "ROCK KEYBOARDS" - Scott Miller.

Currently touring with his enigmatic "SMB" in support of a 2012-2013 CD release "RISE UP". Tours include midwest, USA and Australia.
