Jess Mills is an English singer-songwriter who is signed to Island Records. She has collaborated with several UK Electronic music producers such as Distance, Photek and Breakage.
Mills has worked a lot with Drum & Bass and Dubstep producer Breakage and scored a UK top 40 hit with the song "Fighting Fire".
Other songs of hers released in 2011 are "Vultures" as well as "Live For What I Die For", and a cover of 90s Britpop band The Cure's "A Forest" (Robert Smith has stated he is a fan).
Her first album, called "Twist of Fate" was initially meant to be released in late January, 2013, but because of her label poorly promoting "For My Sins", the album has been pushed back. She writes with the assistance of electronic band, Zero 7. After she left Island Records, she signed up with Warner/Chappell Music. Her original release with this label is a free download of “Sweet Love”, an original song that integrates lyrics from Anita Baker's song with the same name.
She has worked with Scottish singer-songwriter Emeli Sandé on her tour, after singing with Sandé, Katy B and Annie Lennox at an Equals live concert. Her fourth single "For My Sins" was released in mid-September 2012.
Following her album's cancellation and being dropped by Island in 2012, Mills started a two-year reinvention and made a comeback in March 2015 as SLO. Mills released her comeback single "Fortune" via The Fader as the first single to her debut EP, released in May 2015.
