"I didn't even know what a 'loop artist' was before I saw Thawind Mills perform. He had tried to explain it to me, but even the words of an artist who truly loves his craft didn't do it justice. I had to see it for it to sink in.
And now I can't get enough of watching him play...
Music seems to just flow so naturally from his quick hands - it doesn't matter at all that I know how much time and hard work he devotes to his creation - he makes it look like the most natural thing in the world."

"Thawind creates a show that is both simple and complex at the same time. It still amazes me to watch one man with one guitar stand there & piece together a composition of these singularly simple sounds that become a layered depth that will stick with you long after the show. Still, there are all kinds of musicians you could go see - but a show with Thawind is more than that. It's more than his musical mastery - he's a story teller - and a story creator... Right there on the spot he pulls the audience in and shares the show with you, and you will walk out feeling like you got to be part of something - much more of an experience than just a show.
Yeah, I'm a friend so I'm pretty biased - but that's the point - being a fan of Thawind means being a friend.
I know I'm not the only person who looks forward to his annual tour through Colorado. I've seen Thawind make friends everywhere he goes - no one's a stranger to him.
Now, he may roll his eyes at you (deservedly) if you're walking down the street in Boulder & don't know the way to Mork & Mindy's house....and you may curse him when he beats your butt at disc golf (NOT "frisbee"!) --- but I promise you he will have made you laugh, given you something to remember and you will call him friend.
For all that, I also just have to say I think it's an amazing thing that he does. Not just the show, but to build an entire life around the art that calls to him --- to believe in one thing so deeply you can walk away from everything else....I'm not sure he quite believes how much people admire this in him, but I consider myself pretty lucky to get to see it. It sometimes looks like a life of wide open freedom, but it's one of deep commitment too... one only a true bad-ass could pull off.
Go see him if you get the chance." - Natalie Rush

We hire Thawind Mills as often as we can. I get compliments throughout the night while he performs. Thanks, Thawind! See ya soon."

"What a blast! I'd give Thawind 5 stars for music alone...but I need another 5 stars for the upbeat vibe he imparted on everyone! He wasn't just a musical guest...he was a cheerleader and sales rep for all our vendors. I KNOW he contributed to their success. Thawind...you are welcome at the Bee Creek Makers Market any time!" - Kris Shelstad, Community Builder at Bee Creek Makers Market
