Primary Instrument: Vocalist

Born: May 4    

I am very proud to announce that my cd, bossanovafied is on the first round list for nomination consideration for the 52nd Grammy's.

Kristine Mills is the winner of the 2009 Houston Press Music Awards Best Female Vocalist!

This “bold, blonde entertainer outta the old school” and native Houstonian was also nominated for the prestigious 2009 Houston Press Music Awards Musician of the Year and two consecutive years in the Best Jazz category. Houston Modern Luxury Magazine named Kristine Hottest Female Jazz Vocalist on The 2007 Lust List.

I'm digging Kristine Mills' sly, playful way with a jazz tune. She sings like she's up to something wickedly good. And there's more to come Joey Guerra, Houston Chronicle www.chron.com...

From the first note of her jazzy rendition of “I Love Paris,” I was instantly immersed into the music. Listening to her voice, which ranges from throaty and soulful to soft and sensual, you forget about everything else. It's just you, Kristine and her 4-piece band...and of course the other 100 people sitting with you in the room.

“Kristine Mills' pure jazz has become part of the soundtrack of Houston, which makes perfect sense. Like the city itself, her music combines an elemental strength at its core with an almost brazen sex appeal you have to experience to understand. This woman has mad skills.” Jeff Gremillion, Editor-in-chief, HOUSTON MODERN LUXURY

You haven't heard jazz music, until you hear Kristine Mills. She puts a new spin on standards and makes old classics new again. Mills has it all - range, style, technique and, most importantly, heart.

Olivia Flores Alvarez, Night & Day Editor, Houston Press

I love the swing. I love the ballads! And, oh the bossa. What a sound! What else can you expect from (her) team of musicians. Kristines voice is delightful! Jeff Kelley, 90.9 KTSU radio

Beautiful, bold, and blessed with a set of killer vocal cords, Houston-based songbird Kristine Mills has the whole package. Her latest album, Bossanovafied (released tomorrow), represents a culmination of her astonishing singing and songwriting talents. Crooning soulful lyrics with a sassy, old-school flavor, Mills embraces the classic style of Bossa Nova through this intimate collection of songs.” Brilliant Magazine - blog Bossa ??” Babe May 1st, 2009 | By Sam | Category: bRILLIANT Blog By Courtney Cavender

She was most dynamic when sitting down at the piano to sing and play original material that will be released in 2009 on bossanovafied. She was haunting in profile in the quieter moments of those songs, leaving the audience aching for more.
