BIOGRAPHY

MILLYCENT is about to erupt into the funkyversum. She decided overnight to become the Queen of Mumble-Rap. Asked why, she says: “Because I’m always dancing on the inside. Beat & Mumble are the lava in my volcano!”

Milly Groz’s solo project – and more recently, the Millycent Trio, with Markus Schneider on guitar and Michael Naphegyi on drums – combines bits of old disco hits with new lyrics, rearranged beats and unexpected harmonies. Groz’s improvisations on the familiar ground of the Great American Songbook and old pop hits drift into comedy, the absurd, or free tonality. Her joy in combining free improvisation, jazz and disco with macho lyrics from the 60s and feminist positions, hip-hop, swing, and weird sounds makes Millycent concerts an experience for music fans of all ages and preferences.
