For a dose of smooth and groovy soul music, B. Mills is one of the artists to whose direction I’d point you to. The singer/songwriter and producer did drop his first album The Life & Times of an Eternal Optimist mid last year and in it is the track “Slow Motion”. With a velvety vocal delivery and soothing lyrics, this song feels beautifully sublime.
Starting out behind the piano at just 5 years of age, Mills’ life has, over the years, been surrounded by music. The musician is following keenly in the footsteps of his top influences, including Backyard Band, Radiohead, Marvin Gaye and Kendrick Lamar.
