Ask your #WCW with Marie Miller

This week we are crushing on Marie Miller.

Marie Miller is a singer/songwriter from Virgnia. She began writing and performing music at the age of 12, singing with her family in churches, festivals and community picnics.  She found herself drawn to country and blue grass artists, finding inspiration in Alison Krauss and Chris Thile.


Marie signed to Curb Records in Nashville when she was age of 16, writing songs and performing. But the fame machine wasn’t for her back then. “I love performing, but it was so uncomfortable to be 16 or 17 and have everybody telling me what to do. I remember one time five people criticized what I was wearing. When you’re 17 years old you’re uncomfortable with yourself already, so to have a bunch of old people talk to you about your clothes, it was just really weird.”


Marie took some time off from the music business, returning to Virginia. She finished college and with new confidence, returned to Nashville. Working with producers Eric Rosse (Sara Bareillis, Tory Amos) and Chad Capelin, Miller created Letterbox. “Letterbox is about how I love to write letters but it’s also radically relational, about friendships, parents, a child or romance. It’s about how we affect each other as people.”


“This Side of Paradise,” is the first single from the album, a hopeful song, full of promise. Take a listen below and you’ll see what we mean:

What is your definition of romance?

I once heard romance is friendship on fire. I think that’s a good definition.

What is your ideal first date/ what’s the best date you’ve ever been on?

My ideal first date would be anything besides going out to dinner, because I am really clumsy and would spend the whole night just hoping not to spill something on my outfit.

What’s the strangest thing you have ever done to get a love interest’s attention?

I had a crush on my friend’s older brother and I brought him a pumpkin for his birthday.  Pumpkins are my favorite thing in life so it made sense to me, but he just thought it was super weird. Now that I think about it, It was kind of weird.

If there was one piece of advice you could give to other men/women out there, what would it be?

Men, open car doors, write letters, and act a little more like Mr. Darcy. You won’t go wrong!

Women, You are beautiful and stronger than you know.

How do you keep the romance alive in your relationship?

When I fall in love, I’ll let you know!
