“As my countdown to stage got smaller and smaller, I started to hear some marvelous music coming from the stage, floating through my dressing room window. Our opening act was a brilliant young singer named Andrea Miller. The whole band was impressed with her song selection, with her bandmates, arrangements and her jazz sensibilities. I enjoyed listening the little bit I got to, and the band enjoyed their even closer look.” (Al Jarreau)
“As I told Andrea after she sang The Masquerade is Over, she owns that tune. In all my years in this business playing with the best jazz singers Carmen McRae, Anita O’Day, Peggy Lee etc., I never heard anyone sing it as good.” (Pat Senatore)
“Andrea will get to your heart even if she sings in the middle of a boat in the sea. What she does has nothing to do with being in L.A., London, Paris or whatever. It has to do with artistic commitment and love for every note she sings, and that’s how great artists act, don’t you think?” (IAC.com)
“She’s very charming, personable and attractive and sings with a lot of emotion”. “Her delivery is soft and sensual, almost hypnotic. She sings with confidence”. (L.A. Jazz Scene)
“Everybody’s heard the old standard, ‘Cry Me A River,’ every long, drawn-out sob story milked within an inch of its life. Miller as the vocalist gives each line just the right amount of pathos, verve, and snap. She isn’t the kind of singer to wallow in the pitiful aspects, but to turn up the rebound several notches for a refreshing take.” (AXS)
“Listening to her music, it is easy to see why she was honored, her honest, touching lyrics are delivered by her strong, soulful voice in such a divine way that you can’t help but be drawn in. After seeing her flawless live performance of the old standard ‘My Funny Valentine’, I realized that this is one artist who deserves all the accolades and awards she gets. Andrea has a captivating quality about her that commands your attention and earns your praise. Andrea is definitely an artist worth listening to.” (Indie-Connections.com)
“One listen to Andrea Miller’s 21st century update of “Angel Eyes,” will endear you to this song all over again.” (AXS)
