Singer/Songwriter Tavonna Miller emerged from Los Angeles performing her heartfelt and soulful songs for large and small audiences alike. With the release of her album, “Peace, Love & the Lack Thereof” in February 2012, the Pop-Soul songwriter contributed a body of work to the world of music that expresses her artistic observations on each of those topics. In her quest to continue creating art that inspires, Tavonna has been blessed to watch her catchy tunes and down-to-earth stage persona be eagerly embraced by music lovers of all backgrounds.
Now Boston-based, the Berklee College of Music graduate currently tours throughout Massachusetts, New York, & Philadelphia either self-accompanied on piano or backed by some of the best, local female musicians. “It’s so inspiring to perform and record with other like-minded and skilled women!”, Tavonna says of her all-female band. “My songs are presented to audiences with a professional polish that I believe is fostered by each player’s individual competitiveness and nurtured by the warmth and encouragement we share amongst each other.”
Described as having “that voice” by the Boston Weekly Dig newspaper, Tavonna’s vocal ability expands across many styles of performance including Soul, Rock, Gospel, & Opera. Coming from a family background of musicians, she was motivated at a young age to discover and explore the world of music to craft her own unique sound. Tavonna’s sound is influenced by such legends as Stevie Wonder & Nina Simone and also by more contemporary influences like John Legend & John Mayer.
With it’s inclusion in commercial media catalogues, “Peace, Love, & the Lack Thereof” has taken Tavonna’s music to the UK, Finland, The Netherlands, and throughout America. “Having an international reach with my music has always been a goal. I’m absolutely thrilled for the opportunity to be heard in other countries besides my own.” It doesn’t matter what venue Tavonna performs in; she performs with a “Grammy Awards Show” standard. Greg from Resident Media Pundit writes, “...it won’t be long before she’s selling out venues like the House of Blues and The Orpheum. "
