New Music: Sam Miller – Calla

Sam Miller is an American pianist who Jane first discovered for us late in 2020 through his stunning piece Morning. His latest is taken from his forthcoming album Lillies and it’s called Calla.

By Graeme Smith

The album is a dedication to his wife, Lily, and is a rumination on the concept of getting through hard years with hopes for the future. Sam uses the transition from Winter to Spring as a metaphor, just as flowers begin to grow in the moments Winter seems unending. The piece perfectly suits the story, pensive but with a bright edge, feeling both nostalgic and forward-looking.

The album Lillies is due out on the 22nd of this month, and you can check out Calla below.
