23-year-old Travis Tatum Mills has been able to turn a laptop musical experimentation in his bedroom into national tours and a deal with Columbia Records, all in just over two years. But the rapid ascent didn’t come without plenty of work. In March 2012, Travis received a 2012 MTV Woodie Award nomination for Best New Artist. Over the past few years he has amassed a dedicated and loyal fan base with over 15+ million cumulative Youtube views, 530,000 Facebook fans and 200,000 twitter followers. His viral hit single “Vans On” went to top 27 at Rhythm radio this past summer and saw Mills playing to thousands of fans daily on the 2012 Vans Warped Tour. His latest project, the Thrillionaire mixtape was released on Datpiff.com in Summer 12’ and received over 100,000 downloads. Mills is currently in the studio working on his major label debut album to be released later this year. The lead single “Loud” produced by Pop of Pop and Oak is available on iTunes from March 4.
