Des Miller was born in 1981 in the valley between Mount Bob and Leonard’s Leap. He grew up on the shores of lake Bowie and cut his teeth on the Strawberry Fields.
He’s a modern songwriter with his heart and mind firmly in the lyrical tradition. He teaches political economy and lives in a balloon store. He bought that coat for a great price in Paris. He pokes his camera out of car windows and borrows other people’s Whitman. They were not his legs in that photograph. You might have heard him before.
Des plays bass and co-produced Kelly Saunders and The Maple Trail. He’s sat solo on stages with his acoustic guitar. He’s played with Jens Leckman; Darren Hanlon; Dappled Cities amongst others. That was probably Des on Triple J, or FBI, or 8RRR, or 2SER, or PBSFM.
