Trey Mills

When it comes to submissions I'm a huge procrastinator, so sometimes I just have to prioritize. As soon as I heard Trey Mills' music I knew I had to write about it. I hesitate to make a comparison to Timbaland because of the obvious genre differences, but when a producer comes out of the studio into the spotlight, the result is usually worth listening to.

Listening to the Saving Me EP, some things are immediately apparent: like any good producer, Mills knows the ins and outs of masterful arrangements. What makes this particularly intriguing is that behind the layers of instrumentation is a poignant vulnerability. "Saving Me" is a particularly good example of the lucidity of Mills' lyrics (which would be hard to pull off without the strong melodies and instrumentals), his willingness to stretch his voice to frailty in order to convey his point. Fans of Pete Yorn, the Fray, Snow Patrol, and Jamie Cullum will find their place in Mills' music.
