American singer songwriter Steve Dan Mills was the co-founder of Speed Limit 35, one of the first folk rock bands in the American South. He has been enjoying a solo career since the mid 70's and has performed at the Sark Folk Festival, Cornwall Folk Festival, Kerrville Folk Festival, London Folk Festival, Belfast Nashville Songwriter's Festival and the UK's Top Folk and Acoustic Clubs. His music has been described as "the real thing, sensitive, moving, cathartic and healing." He couples his very powerful vocals with acoustic guitar and harmonica. His masterful story telling, based on his rich and challenging life experiences, lays the groundwork for each song in a most engaging manner. He elicits tears and laughter and instills hope in his audience. He has been touring in the UK in recent years performing in folk clubs and festivals to rave reviews.
His song "Dream On Texas Ladies" went to #18 on the Billboard Charts for Rex Allen Jr and sold over 4 million copies for John Michael Montgomery. His songs have also been recorded by major artists such as Neal Coty, Mel MacDaniel and Benita Hill. Guitar virtuoso Tommy Emmanuel has been covering the title cut from his CD, "Inside Out Lookin' In" and his performance of the song may be viewed below. Steve's CD's "Inside Out Lookin' In" and "Remembering Young Stephen" are also available on the Purchase Music tab on this site.
