Anthony Mills is a country artist no matter what you might think. A man who has lived a life and has a story to tell. The great-grandchild of middle America's industrial revolution. Born and raised in working class Akron, Ohio with family stretching from Lake Charles, Louisiana to the West Indies to Stockholm, Sweden. Plus, Mills is a character who cut his teeth as a classical voice major at The Manhattan School of Music. Since the late 90s, Mills worked and toured with the likes of Harry Belafonte, Amy Winehouse, Krs-One, Sizzla, Grace Bumbry and Leela James. (+writing and top-line EDM anthems for Dada Life and Moonbootica).
Somewhere along the road, Anthony felt that he needed to tell the stories of his heritage – from his French-Creole grandmother to the blue-collar great-grandparents who laid their roots in the factories of Akron, Flint and Detroit. Drawing on traditional plantation song storytelling as well as more contemporary influences, Anthony Mills channels the complex inertia of the Deep South.
