Millie Mercedes singer, songwriter, composer believes in pouring out her true feelings into her songs. That’s the first thing that strikes you about her songs, they are honest.

Initially her album was to be recorded in London, with Profile: A single mother, Millie has been singing for nearly two decades now! From leading(suprano) the school choir at 10 years of age to now finally recording her very own album, she has come a long way.
Putting her talent to use, she has done about 80 stage shows in India and internationally! She was working intitally on this album with Channi Singh(of Alaap fame). She wasn’t too happy with the music and so to get that right, she came back to India and met her friends Julius Packiam to finally record her album.
