Chicago-raised and L.A.-based musician and songwriter David Miller first picked up the guitar when he was eight years old and, as a teen, started flying to Los Angeles to hang out with his good friend (and now producer) Danny Shyman.

Shyman took interest in Miller’s music and decided that they should work together. Four songs and one year later, Miller decided to move to Los Angeles; that was April 15, 2021.

Shyman introduced Miller to L.A.’s diverse indie music community, including Republic Records artist BabyJake.

Miller will be opening for BabyJake on tour this year and will also playing guitar in his band. BabyJake’s tour will touch down for sets at Lollapalooza in Chicago, Mercury Lounge in NYC and The Echo in Los Angeles. 

Miller once went under the name David WHO? but recently adopted the name Crandelion. “Don’t Mind the Merry Go Round” follows the debut single  “Behind These Bars.” 

“Crandelion’s are the only records I have been envious of in modern day Rock & Roll. There is so much life in the music…you feel what he is writing about and you feel what the songs are meant to portray. Its like the feeling you get when you look at a painting that just throws you into the back of your mind wondering where that artist is coming from. [I’m] absolutely a fan of his and hope he does extremely well in the future.”
