Lisa Dawn Miller, Daughter of Legendary Songwriter Ron Miller, Releases New Music
Producer/Singer/Songwriter Lisa Dawn Miller - daughter of famed Motown songwriter, Ron Miller - is launching a new website with three original songs, "It's My Turn to Fly," "Summer Loving" and "Here We Go."
"One of my favorite stories is Hans Christian Andersen's 'The Ugly Duckling,' Miller says. "There are a lot of messages in it but what I always took from it, and still do now, is the moment the ugly duckling realizes he is a beautiful swan. Although many will criticize and bully you and would have you believe you don't fit in, no one can hurt you. If you believe in yourself and look around, you will quickly realize that it's hard to be understood and accepted as a beautiful swan when you're swimming in a lake full of ducks," Miller continued.
"'It's My Turn to Fly' was inspired by that incredible moment of self-empowerment when you realize that you are amazing and strong, as you prepare to spread your wings and take flight - and all of the excitement, wonder, fear, question, responsibility and triumph that goes with it," Miller said. The new single is available on iTunes, Amazon, and Spotifyand at Miller's new website, www.lisadawnmiller.com.
Available also on iTunes, Amazon, and Spotify, are "Here We Go" and "Summer Loving," two additional releases by Miller.
All three tracks are available at Miller's new website, along with photos, links to her entire music catalogue, and much more.
