Episode 013: Gretta & Kyle Miller (Tow'rs)
What an episode we have for you all in this one. Join Marv and Harry (aka the wet bandits, aka the sticky bandits, aka Cody Nice Nice and Dan) go #BeyondFLG with Gretta and Kyle Miller, the extremely talented married duo that founded the band, Tow’rs. Gretta, a transplant from Las Vegas, NV, met Kyle, a Flagstaffian/flagpolian/flagstafferino, at the place where knowledge and romance are not found by accident - the Northern Arizona University of the Southwest. NAU. #GoLumberJays.
While dating, Gretta and Kyle began playing music together. This eventually led to creating music and forming the band, Tow’rs. (Which, we do not cover in this interview why they spell it the way they do. I believe we were operating under a strict threat to not ask that question. Plus, that information can be found in a host of other interviews they’ve obliged to in the past).
Tow’rs initially consisted of Gretta & Kyle, Emma Crislip, Kyle Keller, and Kory Miller. Their first album, which was self-titled dropped in 2014. Since that time, the band has released four other full-titled albums and various singles including “Love Who You Love” which was featured on an album titled,” Serenade” which came out earlier in 2021 and was put together by various artists to celebrate and empower LGBTQ people of faith. In this interview, Gretta and Kyle play live versions of Swaying Evergreens and Curious Woman, two of their songs from the album “The Holly and the Ivy,” which they won a Viola award for in 2021. Speaking of Viola Awards, Tow’rs have won like, a million of thems.
Tow’rs have toured with a variety of bands including most recently, The Lone Bellow and have a tour slated for early 2022 where they will open for Joshua Radin (Ray-den). In the interview, they cover
When not writing, recording, or performing for Tow’rs, Gretta can be found at the Commons Church in Flagstaff, where she was recently announced as a Co-Pastor. Kyle can also be found leading the music and directoring them techs at the same spot. Collectively, they can be found raising their two children, touring the nation in an RV sometimes, or simply enjoying the simple things in life….like dishes… at least Kyle is enjoying them dishes.
