ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A Vintage Christmas takes you back in time with earthy, rich vocals, yet also puts a new sultry edge to songs we all know and love so much. The songs that were chosen for this album are songs that spark a lot of different moods but are all heartfelt. You have a full plate of music here- from jazz, to soft rock, to standards and even a touch of classical music. Besides the beautiful grand piano you hear by the "Rockville Piano Guy"- Andrew Kraus, Laura uses lots of unique instrumentation and teams up with Washington D.C.'s finest jazz tenor, Jason Paul Curtis, to give you a great performance of "Baby, It's Cold Outside." She also features some members from her brand new band that covers today's top 40 hits around the D.C. area- they are so new that they don't even have a name yet!

The inspiration to record, produce, and even engineer her own album (outside of being relentlessly curious and a stubborn DIY woman) came from the magic she felt during the holidays when growing up as a young child. Her parents got creative to make sure their kids believed in all things possible. One year, they grabbed a bag of flour, glitter, and a stencil of a boot print to make it look like Santa left magical snowy footprints from the fireplace to underneath the Christmas tree, and then of course to the plate of cookies. When she and her sister awoke the next morning, Laura knew this would be a day that she would never forget. Now she wants to share that same enchantment with her listeners.

There is still so much more to come from Miss Mills. Look for her first original single to release in 2012! When Laura is not writing or recording music, teaching yoga or burning the midnight oil in the ceramics studio, she enjoys hiking, planning themed parties with her best friend and watching The Office with her #1 inspiration- her brand new fiance! They met at Penn State University, not through studying but rather singing together in an eccentric and super fun Acapella group. They plan to marry in 2013 in the woods like Bella and Edward with a very unusual music set list.

A Stellar Collection of Loved Favorites
A very beautiful and memorable way to celebrate the holidays. First class voice and brilliant accompaniment to bring twinkle to your special evening in front of the fire!

Incredible Vocals from a New Singer
Laura Mills' debut album is truly a diamond in the rough. With all of the heavily overdone vocals of today's music, her smooth and sultry Jazz voice is a refreshing change from synthesized radio edits. Her Christmas selections are tantalizing as well as timely, and if you only make one purchase this Christmas season, make sure that you pick up her album immediately.

Brad

Really Good!
I bought this album after a friend of a friend said he knew Laura Mills and was very surprised at the talent of this singer. I would definitely recommend this CD to anybody looking for a quick gift for anyone on your Christmas list.

Kerry

Wonderful Voice, great purchase
I just purchased this CD as a gift for the holidays. Laura has a wonderful voice. She brings her own life to the songs without feeling like she needs to completely reinvent and take them over. It is the perfect balance- love it.

Annie

I'm so tired of listening to all these artists with computer animated voices... its about time an artist comes out with an album thats full of talent. Props to Miss Mills!
