Jim Gill and Cathy Miller met at a concert in July of 2010 and have been performing together ever since. Cathy's adept fretwork and their combined stunning vocal harmonies are reaping praise from audiences all over Ohio.

Cathy Miller is a former member of the progressive rock band Uzizi, combining centuries-old sacred harp singing with a modern 5-piece band. Cathy was a founding member of Los Angeles-based Pushing Air, and played fiddle in the bluegrass bands Taproot and The Crooked River Fire Brigade.

Past performances include  The Chieftains (traditional Irish), Mo’ Mojo (zydeco),  as well as playing for three seasons in The Huntsville Symphony.

Jim Gill has been a lover of music his entire life and a guitar player since childhood -- songwriting seemed the next logical step in Jim's musical evolution. His songs evoke the same emotinal scenery as Ellis Paul, Richard Shindell, Jeffrey Foucault, Greg Brown and John Gorka. "Sparse, introspective and compelling", writes the Medina Gazette. The songs are conveyed in his signature, lush, baritone voice that producer Jim Ballard of Skylyne Studios describes as, "Jim Croce with warmth and range!" Audience members routinely comment on his memorable voice and the depth, and breadth, of his lyrical subject matter. He covers everything from coal mining to motorcycles, coffee to politics, from the raucous to the sublime.

In his ever evolving stage show Jim has added a new wrinkle, a "looping" device, to his concert performances which allows him to make layered vocal tracks where he actually harmonizes with his own voice. These on-the-fly aural effects are truly arresting.
