Prior to the conception of The Sweet Kill, Peter Mills had an extensive career in the music industry, signing with Nikki Sixx’s label for a period with his former band Flash Bastard. Ultimately moving to Los Angeles, Pete diverged into a producing career, beginning with a co-production credit for Soulkid1’s smash hit song “We Got More Bounce in California” with Michael Patterson (Black Rebel Motorcycle Club). This single’s notoriety captured the attention of local labels which transitioned Pete into a successful producing career working with a myriad of artists including Sheryl Crow, Moving Units, Teddy Riley to name a few. The Sweet Kill’s latest releases mark Pete’s comet-like re-entry back into performing again.
This can be felt on songs such as the Lolita featured “Give It Up”.
“Give It Up” is a very personal take on dysfunctional relationships. I used to love alcohol but it didn’t love me back, I used to love “her” but she did me wrong, I used to love money and attention but I was broken. Until I identified and “gave up” all that didn’t work I had no hope and remained stuck. Developing this new relationship with love I became free of the worldly pressures and others opinions and more attuned with the universe residing within.
