THIRSTY THURSDAYS WITH T. MILLS
Today’s Thirsty Thursday artist goes to 22-year old T. Mills (Travis Tatum Mills) from Riverside, CA. I actually gave his music a listen before looking to see what this kid looks like. His sound stems from a variety of influences ranging from Wu Tang Clan to Blink-182; Bone Thugz and Harmony to The Dream; Rusko to Wiz Khalifa — a true testament to the “Playlist Generation” unbound by genre. He has performed on the VANS Warped Tour, Bamboozle, and the Roots Picnic and just completed a North East Mini Tour late last month with stops in NY, DC, Philly, and Boston.
T. Mills has his social media game on lock with a massive and loyal fanbase (164,000+ on FB and 49,000+ on Twitter), notably, thanks through self-releases online. In fact, when T. Mills released a free online album (through Columbia Records) in late July, it had nearly 20,000 downloads in just a weekend!
On his lifestyle, T. Mills is a tattoo aficionado with most of his body covered in ink. Doesn’t he kind of reminds you of a young Brandon Boyd from Incubus? HOT.
Check out “Leaving Home” a track off his second album with the same title.
