With 'Idol' over, Angie Miller is poised for next step


Miller said it took time to adjust to a team approach to songwriting, especially with people she had never met.

“The best way to describe it is like a blind date,” she said. “When I wrote ‘Set Me Free,’ that was just me at a piano by myself. The first time I’d ever written with other people was back in June before the tour. I had two weeks of everyday writing with different people. You meet them and say hi, and then you pour your life out with them.

“I really love the writing process. I found writers I really connect with and really love. Songwriting is an incredible process. It’s so vulnerable, and you really pick your brain apart.”

Miller said she has written five songs with Red Decibel and is convinced at least one of them will get recorded.

“I have a great body of work right now that I’m really proud of,” she said. “We’re shopping it to labels. Hopefully, a label will love it as much as I do.”

Miller said she’s not so much concerned about when she will sign with a recording label as making sure she finds a company that won’t try to change her style.

“I just hope whoever I sign with gets my vision and doesn’t want to change my vision at all, that they really understand who I am,” she said. “I don’t want somebody to say, ‘You have to do more pop,’ or ‘You have to do more this.’ My management (Los Angeles-based 19 Entertainment) really loves my vision and really understands me, and I just hope my label does the same.”

Miller said she is adjusting to her fame and the accompanying lack of privacy, which can be particularly acute in her hometown.
