Austin Sensation - Taylor Mills - Set to Release Debut Solo Album

Brian Wilson Makes Guest Appearance on Protégé's Album

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 17, 2007 -- TAYLOR MILLS, the sultry back-up singer for Brian Wilson, is set to enter the spotlight with her own, debut solo album, "Lullagoodbye," on May 22, 2007, through Austin indie label, Aqua Pulse Records. Produced by Todd Sucherman (Styx) and Scott Bennett (Brian Wilson), this debut features guest appearances by Brian Wilson, as well as Styx's Tommy Shaw.

For the past few years, Mills has traveled with Brian Wilson, recorded on his Grammy-winning epic "SMiLE" project and performed with him at venues that have ranged from Buckingham Palace and the Glastonbury Festival, to the Berlin stage for Live Aid 2. As the lone female on the tour, Mills stands out for many reasons with one reviewer commenting, "This was truly the missing ingredient from the Beach Boys all along -- a great female singer. Taylor adds a terrific blend to Brian and the other guys."

Mills has also performed with Billy Joel and shared the stage with the likes of Elton John, John Legend, Neil Young, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and Sir Paul McCartney. Known for her powerful yet disciplined vocals and pulse-quickening presence, Taylor Mills is no shrinking violet amongst this heady company.

"Lullagoodbye" is filled with memorable tracks, such as the liquid imagery of "Raven" (sweetened by harmonies from Brian Wilson, one of his two appearances on the album), and the irresistible chorus hook on "Genie in the Bottle" (featuring another all-star guest shot, from Tommy Shaw of Styx). The intriguing arrangement and imagery of "Keep the Saints from Leaving," showcases Taylor's ability to cover every corner of vocal dynamics and lyrical imagery.

"All of these songs have great melodies and touch something inside of me," she explains. "'Lullagoodbye' isn't exactly a story album, but it does tell a story about honesty, finding and losing love... finding yourself -- things we can all relate to."
