ABOUT

*** Check out my press kit at presskit.to/felixmills ***


Professional but relaxed. Thoughtful and fun to work with.

With quick ears and an open mind, I'm the creative and musical drummer that you may be looking for.

I approach every project mindfully and commit specifically to every song: whether it's grooving hard, laying back, composing drum/ percussion soundscapes, providing subtle textures, and everything in between.

Having studied and played everything from Jazz to Rock, Latin to R&B, Reggae to Blues, and more, I put passion and love into music of all genres and enjoy contributing to any musical experience.
