About The Artist
When Mills first moved to Los Angeles from his hometown of Bowling Green, Kentucky, he found himself going through the motions. Steeped in the rich history and sounds of nearby Nashville, the artist struggled with finding his voice in sessions. But then he stumbled upon Laurel Canyon, L.A.é's countercultural hotspot for decades (the musical birthplace of West Coast icons like Joni Mitchell and Brian Wilson, and more recently acts like Father John Misty) and suddenly found his new inspiration. Capturing a feeling is exactly what Millsé' dreamy, warm new EP, Train of Thoughts, does throughout its eight tight, punchy songs. Theyé're the type of songs that live with you long after theyé're finished. Its peaks are high and often, juxtaposing sticky melodies with truly timeless songwriting touchstones like love, sadness, and hope. Early adopters (including Justin Bieber, who posted Millsé' music on his Instagram stories after a chance encounter in Benedict Canyon one afternoon) have called his songs heartfelt, noting how cleanly they showcase é"maturity and sophistication at a level that defies his age.é"
