Miller Roberts – Bad Habit (Live from Mahogany Studios)

“The sensations of listening are indescribable - a real kaleidoscope of feelings that pour on you from heaven with an ongoing heavy rain. The atmosphere of this instrumental track is all -consuming, capable of stealing your soul forever.” (Automatically Translated with Google Translate)

“Ощущения от прослушивания непередаваемые — настоящий калейдоскоп чувств, которые выливаются на вас с небес непрекращающимся проливным дождём. Атмосфера этого инструментального трека всепоглощающая, способная похитить вашу душу навеки.”

Miller Roberts is the moniker of 25 year old songwriter Millie Robertson from Newcastle, Australia. The daughter of a travelling preacher and one of five children, Roberts grew up regularly performing impromptu musical numbers and sing-alongs with her siblings.

Heavily influenced by her parents’ love for James Taylor and Carole King, Roberts has always had an affection for folk music. In recent years, artists like Justin Vernon, Sufjan Stevens, The Paper Kites and Lucy Rose have become a key inspiration behind her work. Collaborating with local producer Jackson Barclay, the two have created a sound that is the perfect blend of acoustic folk and alternative pop. Five years in the making and in many ways a slow burn, this project is the unearthing of a hidden creative process. With soft, lilting melodies and painfully honest lyrics, Roberts’ carefully crafted brand is more than enough to put her on the map as one of Australia’s most exciting new talents.
