Mill's End

Mill’s End carries on a tradition of American Alt-Country that blends modern influences with folk/Americana songwriting. The band’s sound is firmly rooted in a style reflective of Drive By Truckers, Whiskeytown, the Jayhawks and the Old 97’s, but with a healthy dose of classic and progressive rock. In 2008, jam sessions between singer/guitarist Jeff Bump and drummer Mark Bainbridge inspired the two to form Mill’s End, and they soon added bassist Geoff Butzine and guitarist Keith Parillo to round out the group. A substantial repertoire of original songs quickly followed, as did a desire to share with the public a down-to-earth approach to experiencing live music. Mill’s End currently plays at popular Tempe and Phoenix-area clubs including the Yucca Tap Room, The Sail Inn and Hollywood Alley to an ever-expanding fan base. The band has also made headlines by participating in “The Train Tracks,” a video web series featuring local musicians playing live on the Metro Light Rail in downtown Phoenix. Similarly, Mill’s End recorded tunes for a campaign by Valley Metro to promote the use of public transportation in the Phoenix metropolitan area. After recently releasing a self-titled EP, Mill’s End is looking forward to recording a full-length album while continuing to expand opportunities for sharing its intimate brand of live shows. [+]
