The Nick Miller Project mixes the live looping, one-man-band talents of Nick Miller with the soulful, dynamic voice of the gorgeous Gabe Green. Nick records multiple instruments live to create a sonic tapestry that brings a smile to your ear and a jangle to your bones. Together, Nick and Gabe play with styles ranging from blues, funk, jazz, hip-hop, and reggae to folk, bluegrass, and Indian classical. Instrumentation includes guitar, bass, sitar, drums, banjo, various percussion, and the use of a violin bow, so expect to be moved musically in many ways!

DCFYI is the only metro area organization that focuses solely on helping teens find families and thus prevent them from aging out of foster care.
