The Steve Miller Band is slowly rolling out its 2020 dates. So far, only three gigs are now on the books — with more dates promised to be coming soon. Miller and the band kick their year off on Friday (February 15th) in Biloxi, Mississippi — with two other dates in May hitting Scottsdale, Arizona and Redondo Beach, California.
Steve Miller and the Eurythmics lead the inductees to the 2020 Songwriters Hall of Fame (SHOF). Among the other inductees are Mariah Carey, the Isley Brothers, the Neptunes — Chad Hugo & Pharrell, Rick Nowels, and legendary Motown songwriter Mickey Stevenson. Additional awards will be announced in the coming months. The SHOF's 51st Annual Induction & Awards Gala will take place on June 11th at Manhattan's Marriott Marquis Hotel.
Steve Miller told us that it's obvious when listening to his first string of albums, he was going from strength to strength as his songwriting and command of the studio improved: “While I was making my records I was always very serious about recording and work, and you realize that sometimes, you're, like, really, really focused, and there are periods of your life where you're work is much better than it is at other times. And, y'know, for me it's so clear, I can see when I was struggling. If you listen to Children Of The Future compared to Fly Like An Eagle, that shows you the amount of growth in the first nine or ten albums.”
