Austin Miller, Chris McVinnie and Kotryna Starkute at the Spire

Whilst studying to be classical musicians in the city of Glasgow, guitarist Austin Miller and cellist Chris McVinnie realised that becoming a classical musician was not the be all and end all of their lives. In late 2017 Austin began a solo project, in which he recorded the EP, “Some Degree of Comfort”.

Right from the get go, he envisioned the project to be in the form of a band and not a solo undertaking. Austin and Chris met whilst students at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. Excited and intrigued by the idea of working together, Chris agreed to collaborate on this project, forming the core band. 

The fascination with different musical worlds and the desire to explore new styles led them towards diving into a variety of various projects. Separately, they have managed to gain experience playing solo performances as well as chamber music concerts, musical theatre, session work and pit work alongside several other projects. Realising the complexity of the music industry made them more enthusiastic to experiment with different sounds and even reminded them of why they wanted to become musicians in the first place. 

Being classically trained has given them a way into understanding other musical concepts and encouraged them to think outside of the box. They set out to make a sound that wasn’t solely based on rock material, but had that as an overarching influence. 

As a band, Austin Miller hope to instil a sense of optimism and community in the face of adversity.

Austin and Chris are joined by vocalist, Kotryna Starkute.
