Carolyn Victoria Mill (aka CVM) is a late blooming lyricist, vocalist and producer who loves working with a theme. She writes and performs with husband Reid Jamieson (Vinyl Café regular), touring Canada, the west coast of the US, as well as the UK and Ireland where their last original record was recorded. Together they have won the John Lennon Songwriting Contest and wrote their way into the Vancouver Folk Music Festival with a tune she penned that won them the Pickin’ a Folk Star contest. Passionate about voting and equality, she is a music industry advocate who enjoys finding ways to crystalize issues and create solutions to common problems. In a past life she was personal assistant to Molly Johnson O.C. for 15 years, a statistician for ACTRA (actors union), and a manager of technology journalists, amongst many other things including board member/BC rep for Folk Alliance Region West. A nerdy girl from way back she loves technology and even writes songs using spreadsheets! CVM has recently competed the Indigenous Canada 12 week course from the University of Alberta’s Faculty of Native Studies to better understand what she can do to move reconciliation forward. Currently working on the first ever tribute album to Buffy Sainte-Marie, as well as a lo-fi folk opera about Pigeons and the causes of housing insecurity, set to premier at the Vancouver Fringe this September. CVM lives with her husband next door to Stanley Park in Vancouver BC Canada.
