Sometimes I Don’t, But Sometimes I Do, the debut EP from Canadian country newcomer and CCMA Award nominee Tyler Joe Miller, is available today via MDM Recordings Inc./Universal Music Canada. The six-song offering features Miller’s debut single “Pillow Talkin’”, which hit number one at Canadian country radio, making him the first independent Canadian country artist in BDS/Mediabase history to have their debut track hit the top of the charts. Not to be outdone, Miller’s follow-up single “I Would Be Over Me Too” also rose to the number one spot, setting an unprecedented and record breaking stat as the first independent Canadian country artist to reach #1 at radio with their first two singles. Adding to his banner year, Miller kicked off 2020 as the iHeartRadio/Pure Country Future Star, was selected as a semi-finalist in the SiriusXM Top of the Country competition, and this past September was nominated for the CCMA ‘Rising Star’ Award.
Signing with MDM Recordings Inc. in early 2019, Miller went on to take home the “Ray McAuley Horizon” Award at the 2019 BCCMA Awards, presented to an emerging artist who has shown achievements in recorded and/or live performances and celebrates their contributions to country music in British Columbia. Born in Surrey, Miller was raised on country music, listening to his favourite artists on summer drives to his cabin in the caribou in northern BC. He first played in a band in his early 20s, drawing inspiration from artists like Brad Paisley, Garth Brooks, George Strait, Alan Jackson, and Kenny Rogers, performing in bars in downtown Vancouver before opting to take a break from music, in pursuit of other adventures.
With a desire to fuse his love of music with his passion for philanthropy, Miller began doing humanitarian work, primarily in Guatemala. From this, he started his own non-profit organization called The Climb Outreach Society, who believe in the value of every person and in promoting a higher quality of life for those in need.
Always in pursuit of making a difference in the world, connecting with people and leaving a lasting impression with his music, Miller shares a style and a sound that is the heart and soul of country music.
