Allison Miller BTB 650

Allison Miller's Boom Tic Boom: Fuster - Live in Philly

NYC-based drummer/composer/teacher Allison Miller engages her deep roots in improvisation
as a vehicle to explore all music. Described by critics as a Modern Jazz Icon in the Making,
Miller won Downbeat magazine’s 67th Annual Critics Poll “Rising Star Drummer” and JazzTimes
magazine’s Critics Poll. Her composition, “Otis Was a Polar Bear”, is included on NPR’s list of
The 200 Greatest Songs by 21st Century Women+. She is also the first recipient of the
Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation’s Commissioning Grant. In January 2020 Miller along with her band,
Boom Tic Boom, tap dancer-Claudia Rahardjanoto, and video designer-Todd Winkler premiered
this new multimedia suite, In Our Veins, with a seven show tour sponsored by Jazz Touring Network
and Mid Atlantic Arts. The project explores multimedia performance as a vital form of knowledge
production through the poetic interpretation of historical events and their association with the
geography, ecology and flow of specific rivers.
