"Take the cornerstones of acoustic Americana, add a touch of bluegrass, country and folk, mix together with dedication, superb musicianship and then add precise harmonies. If these songs don't move you, then your soul is made of stone." - Tim Carroll, Gene and Gayla Mills play new roots music--modern folk tinged with bluegrass and country. In their second album, Walk on Solid Ground (2015),Gene and Gayla again appeal to the head and heart. Gene's songs tell rich stories, many based on real people from Virginia--miners, farmers, lovers, and soldiers. Their debut album, If Stones Could Talk, reached #5 on the Roots Music Folk Chart. Gene has won over 20 songwriting awards, and is an accomplished flatpicking guitarist and lead singer. Gayla's bass playing is accompanied by her tender harmonies. Married almost 30 years, Gene and Gayla have been playing as a duo since 2004. "The dynamic between the both of them is just beautiful." (Karen Atkinson, WHAN).

Dear Gene and Gayla, I was just on the Bluegrass Chart because I was notified that one of my songs had made it. I listened to your song Thriving and was very impressed. Clever lyrics, good singing, and terrific instrumental work. I really admire your work. Susan Nikas
