A debut act on this week's New Zealand Live.  Debut in that, although he has just released his first EP, this artist is yet to play a full gig with a live band.  That wasn't a problem while making the CD, however, he played all the instruments on it and wrote all five songs.

He's not a full time musician yet, but we're picking it won't be long before that happens.  The EP is called "Shoot Me In The Heart" and he goes by a single name, his first name - Miller
