Living in New Jersey as a kid, Tor Miller spent a lot of time driving with his mother to get to his school in Brooklyn. On those drives she would play her classic David Bowie, Elton John, and Fleetwood Mac albums, which Tor Miller grew to love. After learning to play the piano and studying at the Clive Davis School of Recorded Music at NYU, he began to grow into a songwriter in his own right and was soon performing in clubs all over the city. His quick rise to fame has forced him to go all in on music, dropping out of NYU (sorry mom) and releasing his first EP early last year followed by the single “Carter & Cash”.
He visited the Collective Arts Black Box to perform “Carter & Cash” and pay tribute to some of those early influences with a cover of Neil Young’s “Old Man”.
