The Drop: Bea Miller
May 9, 2018 • 8:00 pm PDT
The GRAMMY Museum is thrilled to welcome Jersey-born singer/songwriter Bea Miller to the Clive Davis Theater for an intimate conversation on her rising career and recently released sophomore album, aurora, moderated by Executive Director Scott Goldman. The conversation will be followed by a performance.
Miller signed to Hollywood Records in 2013 after she wowed the world as a finalist on “The X Factor.” Her first album, Not An Apology, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and No. 1 on the iTunes pop chart in 2015. Hit singles and accolades from Rolling Stone, The New York Times, and others soon followed. Miller showcased her edgy, anthemic pop sound with hits such as “Young Blood” and the empowering, gold selling “Fire N Gold.” Tours with Fifth Harmony, Demi Lovato, and an opening spot along with DNCE on Selena Gomez’s 2016 Revival tour showed audiences a live presence that matched the urgency and indomitability of Miller’s voice. In 2017 she went into the studio with Julia Michaels, Justin Tranter, Sir Nolan, Jesse Shatkin, Pop & Oak, and Ilsey to create her dream project: an anthology of EP releases featuring themes tied to a different primary color: chapter one: blue evoked sadness; chapter two: red represented redemption; and chapter three: yellow, featuring “S.L.U.T.” (sweet little unforgettable thing), explored the journey of self-discovery. Each release represented a chapter of her life over the course of that year and together were the precursor to the final chapter, five final songs that make up aurora, her full-length sophomore album that was released Feb. 23, 2018, and hit No. 3 on the iTunes Pop Album chart. Bea is passionate about creating music that resonates with her fans. “If you want to stay relevant in other people’s lives, you should always be bringing them along on your journey,” she says.
