About Allison Miller

Drummer, composer, and bandleader Allison Miller is a boundary-pushing performer known for her adventurous approach to post-bop and modern creative jazz. Arriving on the New York scene in the late '90s, she has played with a diverse range of performers, from Ani DiFranco and Natalie Merchant to Marty Ehrlich, Joel Harrison, and Dr. Lonnie Smith. A three-time Jazz Ambassador of the U.S. State Department, Miller also leads her own inventive groups like Honey Ear Trio and Boom Tic Boom (with violinist Jenny Scheinman), the latter of which has earned praise with albums like 2013's No Morphine No Lilies and 2016's Otis Was a Polar Bear. Miller and Scheinman also collaborated on 2019's Parlour Game. Rivers in Our Veins, an exuberant and emotionally powerful 12-song cycle inspired by America's rivers and watersheds, arrived in 2023.
