Milton Monk Jr was born October 1993 in Meherrin, VA. He began singing and writing music as early as age 13. His father cultivated his love of music. That love of music developed into the love of instruments. The piano and the drums are his instruments of choice. His roots began in the church where he played the drums for various churches throughout central Virginia. Around age 16 he started sharing his music with family and friends. It was then that he discovered he had relatives in the music industry like Jeff Redd who performed new jack swing style R & b in the 90’s and the late great Thelonious Monk who was a jazz singer and composer. Monk began to look at his gift with a different boldness. He began performing locally and realized his gift extended past just singing and writing. He intends, RAE MILLZ, his stage name to become a household name.
RAE MILLZ music style ranges from R&B and soul with a twist of pop and hip hop.
Growing up he was inspired by many artists from different genres and generations. From the baritone of Sam Cook to the melodies of Luther Vandross to the country of Randy Travis it has all influenced his music. Even today’s artist like Usher and Sam Smith inspire him. With a newly signed contract in 2019 with Rich Nation Record Label, there is nowhere else to go but up for RAE MILLZ.
