T. Mills talks music and bucket lists

 T. Mills took over the Revolution Concert House on March 2. Before he went on stage, he sat down with The Arbiter.

The Arbiter:

What do you think you’ve learned from being on tour/ and being a performer that the average person your age wouldn’t have learned, and what advice would you give them?

T.Mills:

Taking care of my body. Like, making sure that you’re healthy and not getting sick all the time. Tour definitely takes a toll on you. There’s not a lot of sleep, crazy weather conditions changing every single day; it’s very strenuous and tiring. But, I also get to wake up in a new place every day, eat crazy food and visit places that people my age probably haven’t visited.

The Arbiter:

Do you have any favorite memories in Boise?

T.Mills:

I love Boise. Last time I was here was on the Summer Fest Tour. The time before that, I played at the university with Flo Rida and that shit was crazy. I’d have to say that was my most memorable time in Boise. I believe that was my first time ever playing in Boise as well.

The Arbiter:

Who are your biggest musical influences?

T.Mills:

That ranges. I like Queen, 2Pac, Blink-182, Nirvana, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony and Wiz Khalifa. I listen to so much music. Anything that grabs my attention. I’m not really genre specific. I don’t listen to just one kind of music.

The Arbiter:

What are you listening to right now?

T.Mills:

Kacey Musgraves’s album is really good. Young Thug, August Alsina, Crosses, and there’s a band I like called The World Is a Beautiful Place and I am No Longer Afraid to Die. That’s the whole name. The World Is a Beautiful Place and I am No Longer Afraid to Die.

The Arbiter:

Do you have a pre-show ritual?

T.Mills:

Me and my drummer just jump up and down a bunch, and we have a secret handshake that we do, but that’s about it.

The Arbiter:

What is on your bucket list?

T.Mills:

It was skydiving, and now I’ve done that. I definitely want to go to Australia and I want to go to Asia.
