Cutting through boundaries is one way to describe singer/songwriter Lisa Mills. The Mississippi native-Alabama resident has been steadily building a devoted, even fanatic following for her taking bits of southern soul, gospel, blues, a little bit of country and some rock and roll and making it her own. “I was just thinking the other day, in our world of fast food and prefabricated everything, it’s rare to find anything home grown,” she says. “There are so many shortcuts, but in all honesty, to pick the best fruit you have to pick ‘em mature. Same thing for music and so much of the music these days is driven by the business itself. It doesn’t seem to be happening as much in our communities naturally as it has historically, as a fabric of our society and real experiences.”
Lisa will continue to take the world by storm with a UK/European tour this summer; several dates have already been booked. “I was thinking to myself, here I am, doing what I do, and I’m not just showing up occasionally to do a big festival. I’m out here working. Every opportunity is one to work on my craft and learn from each performance. The development aspect is what’s missing. It’s not easily won. It’s work – really hard work but I’m doing it.”
