Originally from Dallas, Texas, Gus Miller’s music foundation began at an early age with his involvement in the music and theatre departments in school, and began studying guitar at the age of 12. While attending the University of Texas at Austin, Gus began performing up to four nights a week at clubs and bars around Austin. In his spare time he began teaching himself to play the mandolin and dobro, with an emphasis on bluegrass and country genres. Some of his accolades include being chosen as Austin Music Foundation’s “Artist of the Month” in January of 2017 for his work with local roots-rock band, Light Horse Harry. He was also a winner of Kerrville Folk Festival’s 2016 university songwriting competition, earning himself a slot at the festival. At 26 years old, Gus is an active performing/touring artist based in Austin. You can catch him performing with his group Light Horse Harry, and also backing a variety of local acts on mandolin and dobro. He’s had the opportunity to share the stage with artists such as Ray Wylie Hubbard, Jason Boland and the Stragglers, Jackie Venson, Ruby Jane and the Reckless, The Wood Brothers, Andrew W.K, Zach Wilkerson, Jordan Matthew Young, and many other great artists. Gus is a fun and patient teacher who understands how to present musical concepts/theory to beginning and intermediate students learning guitar, mandolin, and dobro.
