JD Mills was raised listening to the vocalists of the “Greatest Generation.” While his singing honors their tradition, his unique sound and style are all his own. JD has carved out a niche for performing at corporate and political events and private parties along the Eastern United States. New York State Senator Michael Gianaris and First Speaker of the NYC Council, Peter Vallone, Sr. had JD Mills perform for their fund-raising events. JD has performed at the Annual July 4th of July celebration in Astoria, NY for an audience of over 5,000 people.
Internationally acclaimed jazz singer, Marlene VerPlanck, has written “I would say JD Mills is the next big romantic balladeer … perfectly rich and gorgeous, heartfelt voice and, I’d say, among the most handsome of men out there ... the whole package.”
"JD Mills possesses the best qualities of a fine crooner -- warm vocal tones, perfect diction, a love of lyrics AND, most importantly, he sings from the heart."
If you're looking for a singer with that special sound, puts lyrics and melody first, and can work with a solo piano or full jazz ensemble, please listen to my audio samples.
