Miller was born in Hurlingham, Argentina. His mother was Irish and his father was an American who worked for Johnson Wax. When he was ten, his family moved to Racine, Wisconsin, where the Johnson headquarters was located. At fifteen, he performed publicly for the first time at a club in Racine as the only white person in a soul music band. He moved to London and studied at Guildhall School of Music, then returned to the U.S. and took a summer course at the Berklee College of Music in Boston. He also took lessons from Brazilian guitarist Sebastião Tapajós.
In the 1980s, Miller toured as a guitarist for World Party and King Swamp. As a session musician he recorded with the Pretenders, Phil Collins, Paul Young, and Level 42. Since 1991, he has recorded and toured with Sting. The song "Shape of My Heart", which he wrote with Sting, was a hit for Craig David and the Sugababes. He released his debut solo album, First Touch, in 1995, followed by Second Nature and Third World.
In 2003 he released the classical album Shapes, with interpretations of Bach, Beethoven, Edward Elgar, and Tomaso Albinoni.
