Hip-hop up-and-comer T. Mills may have gotten his start in a punk rock band, but his current sound bears more resemblance to Bone Thugs-n-Harmony than it does to the shambling DIY buzz of punk. Don't get it twisted though -- there's still plenty of rock aggression in T. Mill's flow, a unique hybrid of speaking and singing that is the perfect counterpart to his crisp hip hop beats. T. Mills is known for getting up close and personal with fans at his adrenalin-filled live shows, and with a highly anticipated album hitting shelves in 2014 he's sure to be more eager than ever to connect with concertgoers.
Born in Riverside, CA, T. Mills got his first guitar at age five, dropping out of high school by age 15 to start a punk band with friends. After being inspired by the speak-singing of rap acts like Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, he began posting his self-produced hip hop tracks on MySpace, gaining immediate attention and landing on the Vans Warped Tour in 2009. With label offers flooding in, Mills signed with Uprising Records, releasing his debut full-length Ready, Fire, Aim! in 2010. After signing with Columbia records in 2011, he released several mixtapes before beginning work on his 2014 sophomore album. Back on the road, he'll treat fans to his unique brand of rock-infused hip-hop on a string of upcoming tour dates.
