NEW YORK-BASED GOSPEL SINGER LEIGHTON MILLER, RELEASES HIS LATEST SINGLE “PRESS ALONG!”

 

WITH roots steeped in the Christian faith, singer Leighton Miller learned early the importance of perseverance.

That trait is the focus of his latest song, Press Along, which he is in Jamaica promoting.

MILLER…The song and video holds a powerful message

“The song and video holds a powerful message. I know that music can change the hearts of our people, give them hope and inspiration and convert the hearts of those who are on the wrong path,” the New York-based Miller said in an interview with the Jamaica Observer.

“One can create a powerful movement that can grasp and inspire the minds of kids, and once you can do that, the adults will follow,” he added.

Miller is also pushing another new single, Silly of Me, which is also released by Punch This Records.

Last Friday, he appeared on Nuh Behavia Cabbage, a live show in Waterhouse.

The 35-year-old Miller grew up in a musical Adventist family in St Elizabeth and attended Munro College.

“So by the time I migrated to the United States and enrolled in Harbour Fields High School in Long Island, joining the school choir was the natural thing for me to do,” he related.

He took a secular turn after graduation, joining a Rhythm and Blues band called Cornerstone. After theybroke up, he began recording reggae.

“Many of my friends were into reggae, and I felt I was missing out on parts of my Jamaican reggae culture. I wanted to get back to my roots,” he said.

Now managed by the Nikimo Palache-owned Push Hitz Records, Miller is putting final touches to a seven-track EP, One With The Master, which is slated to be released this month.
