Hazel Miller was greatly influenced by Nancy Wilson and especially Aretha Franklin. After performing around Louisville and mixing blues and jazz with gospel and soul, people began to take notice.
Her first big break happened in 1982, when she recorded the official song for the city of Louisville. In 1984, she attempted to relocate with her two children to Los Angeles to further her musical career. But her rental truck broke down in Denver, Colorado, where she stayed. Hooking up with Big Head Todd & The Monsters, Hazel Miller became a regular part of the band's lineup and toured throughout the world.
Hazel Miller is not just a great singer, "she is a force of nature!" quotes the former Rocky Mountain News of Denver.
Miller has been a sought-after performer in Colorado for the past 24 years. Whether she is singing blues, jazz, pop, or Gospel, her voice charges the songs with a primal dose of genuine soul.
Hazel began her 38-year career in Louisville, Kentucky, where she rose to the top of the music scene. She opened for popular artists such as Mel Torme, James Brown, Temptations, Earl Klugh, Bob James and many others.
