Sidney Mills / Press

“Sidney 'Predator' Mills has become an integral part of the Steel Pulse line-up since he joined the band on keyboards in 1988... He then moved to New York in 1981 and later, he played with the renowned Calabash Band and the A-Team Band backing up such celebrities as Shabba Ranks, Judy Mowatt, Beres Hammond, and Queen Latifah, to name a few. He was part of the Ras Tesfa band with Kevin Batchelor and Jerry Johnson for a couple of years. While on tour with Judy Mowatt, Sidney was asked to work with Steel Pulse where he has remained for the past fifteen years. It is his position as keyboard player and musical arranger for Steel Pulse that has placed Sidney Mills among Reggae's prominent musicians. While on tour in Brazil with Aswad and the Smashing Pumpkins, Sidney and David Hinds produced Franklin’s Tower for the album Fire On The Mountain: Reggae Celebrates The Grateful Dead. In 1998, he supervised the music for Jamaica Beat, a Blue Mountain Film and a year earlier he scored and produce”

“Sidney Mills is one of the busiest names in Reggae music. Grammy award winning band, Steel Pulse has been lucky enough to have him on the keyboards since 1988. He is founder of the New York based record company Living Room Records producing artists like Dennis Brown. And has even performed with the Smashing Pumpkins. Sidney has also produced for many artist’s albums including Ziggy Marley, Toots Hibbert, and Shabba Ranks to name a few. The Steel Pulse bass player Amlak once told me "Everyone wants to work with him!” Sidney is not only heavily involved in music production but takes time to participate in charities he believes in.”
