Trey Mills


As a songwriter & producer Trey has had the opportunity to collaborate with Dixon Van Winkle [Elton John, Paul McCartney, Frank Sinatra], Nick Blagona [Deep Purple, The Bee Gees] and Eddie Kramer [Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, The Beatles]. Just before Covid-19 touched down in Canada, Trey signed his first publishing deal with Aporia Records, in Toronto.

Working between Toronto and Calgary, Trey has been a songwriter, producer, mix, and or record engineer spanning various genres for artists such as Forest Blakk [Atlantic], Canadian Brass [Juno nominated], X-Quisite [Juno nominated], KRS-One, Melanie Fiona, Shay Esposito, Zoe Bentley, Nicole Holness, Makeshift Innocence [Juno Nominated], The Show [EMI], GQ [11th most played song of the year 2003, Canada], Trinity Bradshaw [ACMA Female Artist of the Year 2015], Glenn Lewis, Ish, Heat, Jhevon Paris, and Sean Kelly [Opening Day Entertainment Group/Universal].

Back in 2007, Trey released his solo debut Athabasca, via Opening Day Entertainment Group / Universal Music Canada. His single Saving Me was used as the theme song used to launch the Grey’s Anatomy spin-off series “Off the Map” by ABC.

While often a songwriter on his projects , he has shied away from the spotlight – mostly seeking refuge in the studio.
