The Muse: Blake Mills, “It’ll All Work Out”
You’ve heard Blake Mills before. A session musician since his teenage years, he’s served as Kid Rock’s guitar player, Weezer’s studio keyboardist and Fiona Apple’s tour mate. Dawes fans might even recognize him as the co-founder of Simon Dawes, the short-lived SoCal band that morphed into Dawes back in 2009. Now, Mills steps out on his own with Break Mirrors, a debut album filled with wry Americana and dusty rock and roll. On “It’ll All Work Out,” he breaks down his parent’s marriage over a rhythmic, cyclical guitar progression.
