If strangers make any remarks about me they generally relate to my crazy hair or my posh accent (I grew up in England)or my silly sense of humour!

UK born Milly James, otherwise known as Nicole Reid, spent a number of years honing her skills as guest vocalist and co-writer with The Ku-Ling Brothers (Steve Malinder, Shane Norton, Jack Lucas). She has also recorded with The PROBLEM KIDS (UK), performed with and supported huge artists like: MOLOKO, SOUL II SOUL, MAD PROFESSOR, URSULA RUCKER and ROOTS MANUVA.
Re-casting herself as a solo performer, in 2010 Milly was keen to experiment with a new sound, which led to a cool, collaborative release on ONE LOVE/SONY 2010 DUBSTEP INVASION Compilation, with RUN WITH THE FLAME.

MILLY JAMES collectively is Nicole on vocals, keys/ synthesizer, along with Nicholas Kempt on electronic percussion, and Aidan Gordon on guitar.
The trio is very proud to release their new EP Running With Wolves. Which is already receiving copious airplay on local and national radio, and street press praise:

“Jagged leftfield trip-hop and dub-inspired beats contrast with soulfully crooned vocals…
The arrangements are so inventive and unpredictable as to transcend genre…
A surprising, thoroughly enjoyable first release that bodes well for an interesting recording career to come” - DRUM MEDIA
