Gary Miller (born 29 February 1960 in Kingston upon Hull, Yorkshire) is a British Pop and Rock music producer, songwriter, composer, and guitarist. Miller worked for the London production house Stock Aitken Waterman as producer and songwriter, and was later part of the Metrophonic team.[1] He is best known for his work with David Bowie for the album Heathen,[2] Katy Perry,[3] Donna Summer,[4] Lionel Richie, Kylie Minogue,[5] Bananarama,[6] and Simply Red.[7][8]

Miller started his music career during the 1980s as a guitarist, touring with Sir Elton John and Nik Kershaw all across Europe and the US. In 1989, Miller was Musical Director for Deon Estus on George Michael's Faith Tour.[1] During his long-spanning career, he was also MD and guitarist for the 30-year reunion tour for British Pop duo Bros, twin brothers Matt and Luke Goss, in 2017. The Bros Live 2017 Tour filled The O2 arena in London two nights in a row.

Miller moved to Malibu, California, in 2006.[9] In 2014, Miller started the Rock Against Trafficking foundation, which records and releases album projects to raise money and awareness to fight human trafficking. The first Rock Against Trafficking (RAT) album "Set Them Free", which was produced by Miller, features Police and Sting covers performed by various well-known artists, such as the rock band Journey, Heart, Carlos Santana, Slash, Julian Lennon, Ellis Hall, and En Vogue.[10][3] The RAT flagship song "Stand Up" is an original co-written by Miller with new artist AV!VA, and performed by AV!VA. "Roxanne", the first single from the album project, which was performed by Glenn Hughes of Deep Purple, has been released on 11 January 2018.[10][3]
