Welcome to Kristine Mills Music
CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED, AWARD-WINNING JAZZ ARTIST KRISTINE MILLS PERFORMING
TWO SHOWS IN BELFAST, NORTHERN IRELAND FOLLOWED BY ONE IN LONDON, ENGLAND!
Prolific, American jazz vocalist, Kristine Mills has a busy February with two shows at Bert's Jazz Bar in Belfast, plus an all new show inspired by the music of Sarah Vaughan in London.
This show covers the four-decade long, recording career of “Sassy” Sarah Vaughan. Songs from the Great American Songbook fill the first half of the set with hits from her early solo career into her mid-century recordings. Her love of Brazilian music from the 60’s to the 80’s is featured in the second set. Oh, there’s a huge surprise! We’re presenting cuts from an amazing, yet little known recording from her later years.
Mills is known as being a constant and persisting voice in the jazz scene. With her last album project, "Looking Back. Moving Forward." a key moment in her three-decade long career, she received critical acclaim and media support back in the States. She premiered the single “Hold Fast” with Houston CityBook, then celebrated the premiere with a sold-out shows in Houston and Austin, Texas, plus a London debut in January 20, 2022 with pianist Janette Mason and bassist Simon Little
Raul da Gama with World Music Reports says, “Kristine Mills’ talent for songwriting goes well beyond that realm. She is a fine writer of The Song, an even better writer of The Ballad and best of all she writes a compelling narrative. In short, Mills may be considered a complete musician."
The last album, as well as her other releases, are available on Spotify, Apple Music and all other streaming platforms.
“'Looking Back. Moving Forward." EP is the retrospective of my songwriting career,” expressed Mills. “It encompasses songs written at different times in my life, but they share universal truths about love, life, and death. Sentiments that are relatable to all of us.”

"The saucy babe with the Kelly Cuoco sneer and the shelf full of awards is back with album 6, a tasty adult collection of lite jazz delivered with a classic thrush voice. With one of her feet in the Ellington world and the other in Brazil, Mills’ jazz worthy chops are well suited for bringing the past into the present and future making this sweet jazz for nu ears. A solid performer all the way around, Mills makes it happen in fine style." - MIDWEST RECORD - CHRIS SPECTOR, Editor and Publisher
“Graced with beauty, sensitivity, and a magnetic voice. She makes every song have the effect of an aphrodisiac on the senses.” - Jazz Inside Magazine
“...songs hold true to the infectiously jazzy sound that has propelled Mills into headliner gigs at events like the Brazilian International Jazz Festival and allowed her to play sold-out shows in theaters and performing arts centers around the world — from Houston to Sao Paolo.” - Daniel Renfrow
