with CD Release Show

Award-winning vocalist/songwriter Kristine Mills launches and releases her fifth album, entitled "As Yet Untitled", for her kick-off show starting at WAREHOUSE LIVE. The As Yet Untitled tour extends to New York and beyond later this spring. The album is supported in part by the 2012 Houston Arts Alliance Individual Artist Grant for Established Artists in Music.
This performance of the collection of Mills' all-original songs will feature world-class musicians who performed on the album, Mills' long-time band members, David Craig, bassist and composer, and Latin percussionist Ilya Janos Kolozs. Virtuosi of Houston will support the show with a stunning string section on stage!
An added visual arts feature of the show will include a live painting session, performed by famed Houston artist, Taft McWhorter. McWhorter will complete an original abstract work - starting with a blank canvas, and culminating with a new work of art inspired by the music - during the Mills band performance. McWhorter's artwork, inspired by the Kristine Mills tune, Winter's Chill, is also featured in the album's cover art.
Fans can expect bold, beautiful music from Mills' pipes, but the unexpected is reason to show up if you've never heard a Kristine Mills live show - she’s written and added Texas Blues to her repertoire and her alternate mix arranged by percussionist Ilya Janos of Charlotte's Waltz will make a special appearance.
"It is an honor to have brilliant musicians - craftsmen of songs and sound - working on this project," said producer/composer Kristine Mills. "We blended the influences of our generation and of those musical masters that have inspired us over the years, and we are thrilled to release at important venues in Texas and New York this winter and spring. The album release performances are going to fill the house – with both music lovers, and sounds from several genres of music – we're even introducing our first Texas Blues tune!"
