'Pure. That's the voice that appeals...that's Kat Mills.' -Ulster Publishing, Kingston NY 'Music that feels more like an intuition than an actual product. Kat Mills has found a way to go beyond what we think we hear or feel. Intangible.' -Independent Songwriter ----------------- Kat Mills is a radiant, class-act songwriter showcasing the raw energy of a single voice and acoustic guitar. A powerful range, vintage instrument, and inspiring soulful material combine to produce a clean honest sound that leaves audiences wanting more. Reminiscent of another time, commenting on today, Kat is currently based out of Blacksburg, VA and tours throughout the east and beyond. The debut album, Long Time, was released June 2003 and produced by Scott Petito & Kat. It features twelve original tunes and a stellar line-up of backing musicians, who add flavor without taking away from the main event. Scott has worked with such legends as The Band, The Fugs and Livingston Taylor...and now Kat Mills. Long Time is receiving national independent airplay and stunning reviews. 'Great writing, attitude, and simple production-high art.' --Dr. John Starling, founding member of The Seldom Scene Born and raised in Metro D.C., by age 15 Kat's commitment to performing convinced her father to give her his '68 Martin and she began writing songs. She moved to the Hudson Valley of New York for college, and ended up staying in the area ten years. There she nurtured her growing repertoire of folk-inspired skills and a loyal Northeast following: first with popular bluegrass band, Grass, and then with the bare and moving solo show she is known for. Kat Mills stands out in the world of acoustic women as soon as she starts singing. This rich alto voice is the foundation of her sound. The original tunes walk a tightrope between laughter and tears: sometimes hard-driving commentaries, sometimes mellow reflections or funny stories. A bit of twang here, a taste of smoky soul there, and always from the heart. Her music elevates the mood and invites thought without beating listeners over the head. Kat is equally at home in an intimate listening room or on a festival stage. You will remember Kat Mills because she is passionate, experienced, and loves to be up there. Kat Mills is a class act.
