Dan John Miller is an American singer-songwriter and actor from Detroit, Michigan. He is currently the guitarist and lead vocalist for the gothic country-garage band Blanche. He made his major film acting debut in the film Walk The Line, playing Johnny Cash's guitar player Luther Perkins.[1]




Miller's musical career began in the 1990s, fronting the country-punk band Goober & The Peas, whom The Austin Chronicle called "the most exciting live band in America" after playing South By Southwest. The band toured with such bands as Uncle Tupelo and Morphine, and released two albums. He collaborated again with Jack White in the band Two Star Tabernacle, mixing elements of raw country and garage rock.[2]

Currently, Dan and wife Tracee Mae Miller front the gothic country-garage band Blanche. The band’s critically acclaimed debut album, If We Can't Trust the Doctors was released on V2 Records at the end of 2004.[3] Their second album, Little Amber Bottles, was released to similar critical acclaim in 2007.

As a solo performer, he was chosen to perform at Dave Eggers' Revenge of the Book–Eaters benefit concerts. He has also played with Ralph Stanley, Josh Ritter and The Mekons. As part of the promotion for the release of Walk The Line, Miller performed solo along with the Tennessee Three at the ArcLight Theatre in Hollywood.

Miller also played and sang on Loretta Lynn's Grammy winning album Van Lear Rose, as well as Charlie Louvin's (of country legends The Louvin Brothers) Grammy nominated self-titled album.

Miller has also made cameos in music videos by the Melvins, The Soledad Brothers and The White Stripes.

An acclaimed audiobook narrator,[4] Miller was named a Best Voice by AudioFile magazine: for performances of Pat Conroy's The Lords of Discipline and Philip Roth's My Life As a Man. In 2009, he was nominated for two Audies, as well garnering a Golden Earphone award (Audiofile magazine), and a Listen Up! award from Publishers Weekly.


He plays a Harmony H60 Meteor archtop guitar mostly on tours with a Fender Twin Reverb amplifier and occasionally a Danelectro Daddy-O distortion pedal. He also plays a Gibson J-100 acoustic guitar.

Marriage and children

He married painter Tracee Mae Miller on October 13, 1996. They have two children, daughter Frances Rose Miller (born 18.2.2009), and Hollis Harmon Miller (born 14.9.2011).
