Having started her musical journey at the tender age of five, London born Millie Manders has a rich background in classical, big band jazz and contemporary music ranging from punk to soul and back again, learning clarinet, saxophone, voice and ukulele.
Millie creates cross-genre punk that is hard to ignore. With lyricism that pokes fun, draws you in or leaves you questioning social norms teamed with incredible vocal dexterity, grinding guitars, irresistible horn hooks and a pumping rhythm section, the Millie Manders Music Machine churns out more raw punk fusion than you can shake a stick at, with a huge amount of Pop appeal.
Having had various musical projects, most notably Second Sense, Millie launched her solo career in 2013, taking her acoustic sound around the UK, building her loyal fan-base and releasing her first EP “Demon”. Singles Demon and Raw saw her get airplay on multiple local radio stations including BBC Introducing Norfolk, Coral Rose Radio in Liverpool, RKC in France, Krystal Radio in Essex and Shoreditch Radio in London, plus regular spins on internet stations in New Zealand, Canada and America.
