GREEN BAY, WI, January 13, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ — If you are discerning your personal call from God or the next direction after college, a change in job or living situation, you may find Marie’s lyrics and answers to questions helpful in your own reflection.
Miller is a folk/pop singer/songwriter and recording artist living in Nashville, Tennessee. Her distinct poppy country vibes sound has been likened to almost like a combination of Shania Twain and Sara Bareilles.
“Little Dreams” was written with my good friend Kris Allen. We wrote this song about how often artists can forget the simple gift of performing and writing music. We can forget the little, quiet gifts and focus on being “successful” instead of faithful and grateful.”
Miller’s faith often inspires her songwriting. “My faith is everything to me. When I was sixteen I read St. John Paul the Great’s Letter to Artists which changed my life forever. JP2 wrote, “Beauty is a call transcendence.” What I learned from this letter is that art should always point ultimately to Beauty Himself. That is what I hope my music does.”
Given the challenges of being an independent musical artist and songwriter these days, Miller remain resolute. “I knew deep down inside that God had given me a gift and a desire to perform this music. As an independent artist, you have to take risks and put your whole heart on the line.”
God has placed dreams in all our hearts, and he can make these dreams come true if we follow His will in our lives. What I forget is that God dreams with us. He knows our dreams better than we do. Sometimes this means a change of plans, but it is always the best plan for our ultimate end which is Heaven with Him. That is better than any dream we can dream.”
