TOR MILLER ANNOUNCES DEBUT ALBUM AMERICAN ENGLISH FOR FALL 2016
UNVEILS NEW SONG “BABY BLUE” TODAY
“Tor Miller is on the fast track to making a major impact.” – Pigeons & Planes
“An enthralling new talent” – Sunday Times Culture06 MAY 2016 (Toronto, ON) – Tor Miller is pleased to announce the release of his debut full-length album, American English, for fall 2016 via Glassnote Records / Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. Today, Tor also unveils the latest track, “Baby Blue”, off the forthcoming album. Listen to “Baby Blue” here. The New York based musician, singer and songwriter has gone through something of a transition in the eighteen months since he launched his debut EP Headlights and released the lead track off the debut album “Carter & Cash”. Since embarking on a full headline tour this past January and hitting the road with Norwegian press-darling Aurora this spring, Tor has gone from gracing club stages as a solo pianist to fronting his own band. He has seamlessly combined the art of sitting focused and entranced behind a keyboard, to standing front-and-centre of the stage for his fans. This invigorated live set showcases Tor’s rawness of expression and captivating vocals in a whole new experience for fans. Today’s release of “Baby Blue” marries up the two aforementioned skills; piano playing and singing. Having played the heartfelt and emotive song, solo, on many occasions at his regular Rockwood Music Hall shows in New York City over the years, the subtle touches and flourishes from his band here give it the ability to swell and soar. It is an undoubted highlight of his live show and a central part of his forthcoming debut album. About Tor Miller Recognized and praised by Pigeons & Planes, Nylon, The Huffington Post, Baeble and many more for his talent and as an ‘artist to watch’, Tor Miller made an instant name for himself playing at piano bars across the lower east side of New York at a young age. Originally taught how to play the piano by a retired wedding singer, at eighteen Tor enrolled on the prestigious Clive Davis School of Recorded Music at New York University, developing both his voice and songwriting. Signed to Glassnote Records (Phoenix, Mumford & Sons, CHVRCHES, Childish Gambino) in 2014 and subsequently dropping out of NYU due to scheduling difficulties, Tor posted a series of part iPhone recorded demos – just piano and voice online - which quickly helped to introduce this exciting, raw young talent to a wider audience far sooner than he’d anticipated. Tor’s debut EP Headlights was released in January of 2015, followed by ‘Carter & Cash’ last summer, the first single off forthcoming debut album American English due out this fall on Glassnote Records.
