A fifth-generation Floridian, Mills sings alternately of the swamp and the suburbs. She grew up ten minutes from the beach with jazz musician parents and a professional studio in the garage. By sixteen, Mills was playing her quirky originals on acoustic guitar at DIY punk shows. Upon graduating high school, she had recorded and self-released an LP-CD (lady lady, friends and family—2007) and an EP-CD, (Fruit n' Feet—2008).
Mills went to college in Gainesville, FL, and began playing with a band. Though her roots are as tangled as the mangroves', her supple voice and evocative lyrics cut through to create a driving folk-pop hybrid. Her new album, Stonefruit is the coalescence of three years of songwriting, and Mills' first full-length, full-band release. She currently lives and performs in Brooklyn, NY.
