Flutist, Songwriter, Educator and Author Delandria Mills is carving a place in the music industry  with her unique combination of jazz, classical, and gospel music. A  native of Houston, Texas, Delandria earned her undergraduate music  bachelors degree from Prairie View A&M University and two graduate  degrees from The Peabody Conservatory of Music: a masters degree in  classical flute and a graduate performance diploma in jazz. 

Delandria's  musical approach combines her beautifully velvet style, soulful  interpretation, and extensive musical training to add dimension to her  work, with the influences of Hubert Laws, Freddie Hubbard, Kim Burrell,  and many other classical, jazz, and gospel artists, to produce a  distinct sound.

"The artists torch is being passed from Hubert Laws to Delandria  Mills!!! Delandria is the the real deal. Both in her inherent abilities  ... but in the work she puts into her gifted-ness to become the master  of music on her instrument that she is. Hubert Laws as we know, is an  ascended master ... but the big question is who will carry the torch he  has taken to the to the highest level? Well, my understanding is ...  among all the young flutists out there today. Delandria is the heir  apparent to carry the torch now and beyond. Like so many torch bearers  recognized today it makes a monumental difference that those that will  possess the profound artistry and brilliance to contribute to this music  should and need to be recognized for their "stepping up" and  contributing to this "River of Truth" and Delandria is all that!"  --George Heid Sr, Heid Studios, Pittsburgh, PA
