You might be looking for the other Derek Miller

Just so you know, I am not the Derek Miller who's a nominee for Aboriginal Recording of the Year at the 2008 Juno Awards.

Not that it would be too easy to confuse us. He plays guitar way better than I do, and I have no aboriginal ancestry either.

actually, there are two derek millers.

The aboriginal guy, and a guy I know from Cape Breton who's now a TV producer by day and plays in a Celtic band called "Up All Night" at night.

Unfortunately, it appears that neither of them have operating web sites, although you can find the TV/Celtic Derek on Facebook and the First Nations guy on CD Baby http://cdbaby.com/cd/derekmiller
 
Thanks for the CD Baby link. He used to have a site at derekmillermusic.com -- seems a shame that he would let that expire.
 
The funniest Google crossup potential award would go to Dion McGregor. You might be looking for the CIO of Sophos, but you're much more likely to find info on the guy who's sleep talking was released in a series of bizarre albums.
 
There are a lot more than two Derek Millers. There's also an expert on child psychology who shares my name. But the aboriginal Canadian musician is the one people seem to confuse me with most often.
