Join Fretboard Journal Live as they interview acclaimed singer-songwriter, session musician and producer Blake Mills. You’ll hear a few tunes from his album Heigh Ho, hear a bit about his background and, of course, talk gear.

Blake Mills is a guitarist, producer, and recording artist. He is best known as a session musician, having performed on recordings by Kid Rock, the Avett Brothers, Conor Oberst, Norah Jones, Dixie Chicks, Zucchero, P!nk, Lana Del Rey, Dangermouse, Paulo Nutini, and Weezer. 

Mills began his musical career as a founding member of Simon Dawes with Taylor Goldsmith. After he left, Mills became a touring guitarist for Jenny Lewis. He also served as a hired gun for Band of Horses, Lucinda Williams, and Julian Casablancas. Later, he co-produced Jesca Hoop's The House That Jack Built in 2011, and produced fiddler Sarah Watkins sophomore release, Sun Midnight Sun.

Mills began his work as a solo artist after his success in producing, and recorded his sophomore offering Heigh Ho at Capitol's Ocean Way studio, with a host of guests that included Fiona Apple, Jon Brion, Benmont Tench, Don Was, and Jim Keltner. The album was released in September of 2014.
