With the release of his Cotton EP, Miller Blue has kicked off his 2019 in a way that anyone would envy.

Miller Blue is a name you will undoubtedly hear throughout the coming years, especially if Cotton is anything to go by.Although this is not his debut project, this is the first project of his that I have personally listened to. I was introduced to Miller Blue a short while ago through one of the tracks off of his EP ‘Rush’. From that, I got a very refreshing and fun R&B feel from his music, so when I tuned into Cotton I expected the same. I was completely wrong. To give a better overview of the kind of range Miller has, the closest comparison to another artist I can give is to James Blake. They share their musical roots in electronic but blend that base with other genres. Where James Blake is much more experimental and tends to push the boundaries of music in a way that can for some be off-putting, Miller Blue takes that style and gives it a polish that makes it almost seem like it should be pop. The sounds on Cotton will resonate with any kind of music fan due to how many influences and stylistic elements are at play in the project.
