(Los Angeles, CA – September 29th, 2021) – Mills, singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and troubadour, releases his new song “Five N’ Dime” today via Keep Cool/RCA Records. Check it out HERE. This follows previously released tracks “The Store” and a cover of John Mayer’s “Waiting On The World To Change” which you can listen to HERE.
Mills says, “”Five N’ Dime” was written about the initial feeling of connection with somebody; when everything in your life seems to be going wrong and that person lights it back up and gives you clear vision. Every second apart makes you want to be together that much more. It’s a timeless feeling, which is why I decided to write about meeting at an old nickel and dime store. My vocal is the main focus of the record and everything else is intended to enhance the experience of the poetry.”
This fall, Mills will be playing a run of show dates with Peach Tree Rascals on their “I Can’t Wait Tour.” He’ll be stopping in New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles starting in New York on October 25th.

Born and raised in Bowling Green, KY, and having spent time in both Nashville and Los Angeles, Mills’ southern influences have been brightened by the Los Angeles sun, resulting in buoyant melodies tinged with nostalgia. With his poetic storytelling and distinctive harmonies that evoke the 1970s era of Laurel Canyon, 21-year-old Mills emerges as a troubadour for the modern age, vividly spinning tales of young love, happiness and heartbreak. Earlier this year, Mills released his EP Train of Thoughts featuring his critically acclaimed song “Hollow” which Billboard said ““Hollow” is sun-kissed singer-songwriter music, with a beautifully loping hook that gains texture as the harmonies fully arrive.” while The Interns called it “…a sweet spot between John Mayer and Harry Style.”
