In preparation for Shetland Create’s literary night, we’re getting to know a few Scottish creatives. Today we learn about Shambles Miller, Glasgow singer/songwriter.
My name is Shambles Miller and I’m a singer/songwriter. Sometimes people ask me why I’m called Shambles. It could be because I’m 29 and I still regularly run out of money before the end of the month, or because I’m a professional(ish) musician who plays a super-cheap guitar with ghosts painted on it. Or maybe it’s just because I’m always forgetting my keys and stuff.
I write music that’s funny but also sometimes not, and I wouldn’t say I’m a comedy musician, but I’m sure some people think I am. Maybe they’re right, I don’t know. I’m quite indecisive. I think I just tend to deal with stuff through humour.
I’m Shambles Miller and I’m at home in Cardonald, Ooo, Hyrule, Nashville, Tatooine, Florida, and Partick.
And I’m shamblesmiller on pretty much everything else. Instagram, vine, tumblr, etc.
