Daniel Dye, an Ohio native, spent a good part of the last decade writing songs as he backpacked his way around the world, living in China, Germany, and Poland. After returning to the U.S., he began jamming with the musical Miller siblings, (who also just happen to be his nephews and nieces), bringing their sensibilities as young musicians to his own tunes. Over time, family sing-a-longs and weekly gigs at a farm market began growing into something more serious. The Millers, classically trained in the cello, viola, and violin, added a more sophisticated sound to Dye’s guitar and harmonica. The banjo, mandolin, and cajon were soon mixed in and the Miller Road Band was officially formed.
Dye has released two albums, “Daniel Dye featuring the Miller Road Band” (Dec. 2010) and “Blinded Again” (March 2014). Both have been well-received in central/southwest Ohio with radio airplay on NPR affiliates 91.3 WYSO (Dayton) and 90.5 WCBE (Columbus). His other releases include “Back to Ohio” (2017) , a digital EP, and “Home Sessions”, which is a new-song-every-month project. Dye is also the co-founder of Madden Road Music Festival, located on his family farm in Central Ohio.
