Kate Mills is making her presence in the NYC music scene felt with the the recent release of her debut EP, Little Bird. The record showcases the versatility of her smooth, buttery vocals and the well-crafted songs ranging from the soulful and sultry “Little Bird,” to the fun, romantic single, “Cherry Tree” which makes the listener feel like they are on a stroll through Central Park on a Saturday afternoon.
In the brief time leading up to the EP release, this social worker-turned-songwriter has gained a solid fan-base by performing at some of New York’s most iconic music venues including The Bitter End, Rockwood Music Hall, and Pianos. She has been interviewed on several local radio programs including “Mind Over Music” hosted by Cari Cole. In this short time Kate has earned two nominations in the 2013 JAM Awards, and landed multiple TV performances, such as “The Gimme Mo Show” hosted by “High School Musical’s” Monique Coleman. Two of Kate’s songs can be heard in the feature indie film “Hits,” written and directed by David Cross of “Arrested Development”
As one who continues to work towards raising awareness of emotional and mental health issues, Kate is always looking for opportunities to merge her love of music with the pursuit of social good. “I believe music, at it’s core, is emotional. It’s not only a platform for raising awareness about important social issues, but music itself can offer healing, expression, and create genuine connections that help us feel less isolated and alone.” She continues to draw on her experiences as an adolescent social worker in her songwriting.
