Mia Borders is blossoming into one of the most intriguing artists emerging from New Orleans today. Mia has become known for blending energetic funk, rock and blues with emotional lyrics and a deeply soulful voice. Alison Fensterstock from The Times Picayune and Nola.com, described Mia as, "a singer-songwriter sui generis, playing sultry, often confessional original tunes sometimes cloaked in a thorny coat of high-energy, blues-rock riffage; sometimes, she calls to mind Ani DiFranco, but funkier."
Mia entered the New Orleans music scene in 2006 and has released music every year since. Her catalogue features two EPs, four LPs and one live album. Her latest album "Quarter-Life Crisis," was produced by Anders Osborne and showcases an edgier side to Mia. Offbeat magazine called the album a "record of great music and great intensity."
Mia has captured the hearts and imaginations of audiences wherever she plays, including the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, San Jose Jazz, Essence, Telluride Cajun Fest, Houston iFest, Wakarusa, Voodoo Music Experience and Voice of the Wetlands among others.
