Mil’s Trills is a children’s music project of Amelia Robinson, who invites families to celebrate the community through interactive performances that feature original tunes and a rotating cast of musical guests.
Mil’s Trills’ debut album, Everyone Together Now! deftly combines music from around the world, dipping into the genres of urban funk, blues, honky-tonk, and Calypso as children are spirited along a rhythmic adventure. The album enlists the use of over 42 instruments, including a sousaphone, cuica, mellotron, and a blade of grass, which guide listeners through the string, wind, bass, percussion, and keyboard families. Everyone Together Now! is for children 0-7 and their grown-ups, and is an effective and fun tool for broadening horizons, building community, engaging parents and children, and teaching early music education. The album features Mother May I, a single that appeared on the children’s album, Songs for a Healthier America, released by Michelle Obama’s Partnership for a Healthier America and Hip Hop Public Health to promote active kids.
Mil's Trills' second album, “Now That We’re Friends…” promotes friendships through open minds and compassionate hearts. By accepting differences and building community, we can help make the world a better place. It's set to release September 23, 2015.
