Hailing from Louisville, KY, it was always Ben's dream to combine his love for classical music with pop music, so while at college he formed the piano pop trio Jukebox The Ghost. Since their inception, Jukebox has released five studio albums, one live album, and performed over a thousand shows globally, including festivals like Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza and TV appearances such as 'Conan' and 'Late Show with David Letterman'.
As a solo artist Thornewill released an album of all classical improvisations in 2017 and has recently turned his creative attention to a new project. Using his prodigious classical piano abilities and unique songwriting style he has created an album that fits in the great tradition of Billy Joel, Regina Spektor and Rufus Wainwright.
"Quiet At The End Of The Day" is the debut album of this new project. Thornewill puts his piano and voice front and center and uses electronic and orchestral elements to give the production depth and excitement.
For over a decade, singer/songwriter Dan Mills has been winning over audiences with his dedication to the art of songwriting. Mills’ craft and creativity shine through in his thoughtful lyrics and poignant melodies.
Mills portrayed country-guitar legend Carl Perkins in the Broadway cast of Million Dollar Quartet and his song "Best I Could" earned him a nomination for Sirius XM Coffeehouse's “Singer/Songwriter Discovery of the Year". Mills’s 2017 release “Something Good” combined his knack for writing honest, lyric-driven folk songs with a raw Sun Records twang that seeped into his artistic voice while portraying Perkins. “Something Good” left Mills with over a million streams on Spotify, and a #49 spot on the AMA radio chart.
Mills is currently celebrating the release of his latest LP, “Stockbridge”.
