Alex Mills (@AlexMillsMusic) – great sound from the UK

December 16, 2010

A random crawl through YouTube the other night as my daughter had wanted to hear some more Björk tracks we jumped to Tricky (who she’d see in The Fifth Element but not realized was a musician) and we discovered Puppy Toy from the Jools Holland session…

The female vocalist had an amazing voice so I dug a little deeper and discovered Alex Mills. Wow, what a voice.

From the live session on Acoustic 64

to interviews where she comes across as someone who loves what she does

to self-composed songs with witty lyrics like

she’s a great reminder that there’s still real talent in the music scene, especially in the UK, but you have to look past the reality show cookie cutter productions to find it.

If you’re looking for someone who combines Ella Fitzgerald, Anita Baker, Alicia Keys and Duffy … Alex has that and more!
