My name is David E. Miller. My pseudonym is LividEmerald. I have used LividEmerald for many years as part of my e-mail address. When I joined SACEM (la Société des Auteurs, Compositeurs et Editeurs de musique) a couple of years ago, I found that there was another David Miller among their subscribers, and since they dropped my middle initial when identifying me as the “auteur” on some of the songs, I decided to purchase a pseudonym. LividEmerald is simply a letter scramble of David E. Miller. On Chris Almoada’s 2014 CD, I will be credited as: Lyrics by LividEmerald. I wrote the words to all 17 new songs, which Chris Almoada composed and will sing on the album. Sometimes, a pseudonym is used for purposes of anonymity. In my case, it’s just to avoid confusion at SACEM. So I don’t mind people knowing that David E. Miller and LividEmerald are one and the same!
