Crispian (also known as 'Dodge') was born to the actress Hayley Mills and film director Roy Boulting, and has a half-brother called Jason. He is married to the model Jo Mills (nee Branfoot). His grandfather is the British actor Sir John Mills. He currently lives in Bath.
Mills became famous as the lead singer/songwriter in the Indian-influenced 90s rock band Kula Shaker in 1996. He was one of a clutch of mid-1990s Britpop stars to rise to prominence in the media, before making a series of unfortunate remarks about swastikas and being accused by newspapers such as the Daily Mail of harbouring Nazi sympathies. Crispian was the creative dynamo behind the band's success and his departure signalled the end for the band in 1999.
He spent several years experimenting with new musical ideas, as a part of two bands named Pi and Crispian Mills. Neither led to chart success or even the completion of an album, but the formation of a new band called The Jeevas with Andy Nixon and Dan McKinna has led to relative success.
The band recently contributed to an Indian themed rock album (yet to be released) and Crispian is currently working on a film project entitled The Winged Boy, produced by Stephen Fry.
