With her endlessly soulful voice, richly emotional songwriting, and undeniable style, Mia Borders embodies the spirit of her hometown, New Orleans, Louisiana. She is heralded locally and nationally as one of New Orleans’ best rising talents. The Times-Picayune described her 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." while USA Today characterized both Borders and her original material as “deeply funky.” New Orleans’ own Offbeat Magazine applauded Borders for her “great music and great intensity.”
Mia Borders was born, raised and currently resides in New Orleans. Borders tours frequently performing at clubs and festivals around the world, most notably: New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Essence Festival, Brazil’s Bourbon Street Music Festival, House of Blues New Orleans, Tipitina’s, Santa Cruz Blues Fest, Chenango Blues Fest, Festival International, Houston IFest, Michael Arnone’s Crawfish Festival, Chattanooga’s Night Fall, Telluride Cajun Festival, Voice of the Wetlands, Memphis’ Levitt Shell, Wakarusa, TBois Blues Fest, Crescent City Blues & BBQ Fest, 2012 Food & Wine Classic, and The Kennedy Center for Performing Arts. With further touring ahead and more new music expected in 2015, Mia Borders shows no signs of slowing down.
