Event Description


The Mill is excited to welcome back Psalm One and Angel Davanport, joined by James Cam'Ron for New Year's Eve! All net proceeds for the event will go to The Emma Goldman Clinic.




Cristalle Bowen, professionally known as Psalm One, has been consistently named one of the nation's Best Artists by the Chicago Tribune, and in 2011 made her television debut on MTV's Emmy-winning series, MADE. 


She released her debut album, "Bio:Chemistry", while studying chemistry at the University of Illinois in 2002. In 2006 Psalm One became the only woman signed to the independent record label Rhymesayers Entertainment after leaving her job as a chemist and releasing her commercial debut, "The Death of Frequent Flyer". In 2015, she challenged the label’s practices toward women, herself then being the only woman signed to the imprint in its 20+ year history. And advocate of equal rights across the board, Psalm frequently speaks on panels and conducts workshops in the educational sphere. 


Psalm One has performed on stages across the globe and is always adding to an already impressive discography. She’s shared the stage with everyone from Chance the Rapper to 50 Cent. In 2012 she released a children's album, aptly titled "Child Support" in conjunction with ASCAP and America SCORES, a nationally celebrated after school program. 


Balancing time between tour and running the hip-hop influenced after school program RhymeschoolPsalm has always been an insightful, exciting artist to watch. In 2013, she began releasing music under the pseudonym Hologram Kizzie. 


In 2015 she self-released P.O.L.Y. (Psalm One Loves You), and embarked on a U.S. tour she orchestrated herself. P.O.L.Y. broke new ground for Psalm, as it shows a beautiful amount of live instrumentation and group vocals. Fittingly, the album was named  one of the year’s best by multiple publications. 


Also in 2015, she became the driving force behind a new supergroup, the all-female collective The Rapperchicks. 2015 marked the group’s debut “Shitty Punk Album”, as well as the release of Psalm’s incredible triple album “Gender Fender Bender”. 


In 2018 Psalm has been working on a few multimedia projects, just completed a European tour and is slated to start releasing new content (as) soon (as it’s ready). She is temporarily living in Minneapolis focusing on building safe artistic spaces with women and non-binary artists.
