Siobhan Miller

One of Scotland’s foremost folk-based singers, Siobhan Miller is an exceptional talent, renowned for her unique vocal style paired with evocative song-writing. Siobhan's rich melodies combine the sounds of indie and alternative music with those from her folk and traditional roots.

Growing up in a musical family, Siobhan was immersed in traditional song and learned from many of Scotland’s finest source singers in her early years as a performer. She won the 2018 BBC Radio 2 Folk Award for Best Traditional Track (for Banks of Newfoundland), whilst also nominated for Folk Singer of the Year, and is the only ever three-time winner of Scots Singer of the Year at the BBC Alba Scots Trad Music Awards.

Her four solo albums have received widespread critical acclaim, most recently All is Not Forgotten (released April 2020) achieving five stars in The Scotsman as well as BBC Radio 4 airplay.

Mercury (2018) was Siobhan's first album of entirely original material, recorded in Glasgow with many of her frequent collaborators, including producer Euan Burton. It also features songs co-written with Lau’s Kris Drever and Admiral Fallow frontman Louis Abbott. Flight of Time (2015) and Strata (2017), were both likewise nominated for Album of the Year at the Scots Trad Awards, highlighting her extensive range through traditional, contemporary and self-penned material, as well as her “delicate, nourishing vocals and lyrically rich compositions” (The List).

Alongside her extensive solo ventures - which saw her ring in 2020 at the world-renowned Woodford Folk Festival, in Queensland ahead of a five week debut tour of Australia - Siobhan's unique vocal style has been honed through collaborations with many of Scotland’s top musicians, as well as guest appearances with the National Theatre of Scotland, a season on Broadway, and a role on US/UK TV drama Outlander.
