New Orleans-based Mia Borders and her band are captivating audiences locally and nationally with their sexy, energetic blend of funk and soul that highlights Mia's contemporary songwriting. The band, which has quickly gained momentum, spotlights Mia-- a stunning vocalist and guitarist. Mia has received rave reviews from her performances at The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Santa Cruz Blues Festival, Houston International Fest, Mt. Helena Music Fest, San Jose Jazz Fest, Taos Mountain Music Fest, and Voodoo Music Experience to list but a few. When she opened for Corinne Bailey Rae at the House of Blues New Orleans, "Borders drew the crowd in and had them cheering for more" (NewOrleans.com). As the band's touring expands, Mia continues to charm and delight audiences at large music festivals and intimate venues alike, such as, Moe's Alley in Santa Cruz, CA, Sullivan Hall, Brooklyn Bowl in New York, and The Green Parrot in Key West. With this and much more ahead, Mia Borders has secured her role as one of the fastest rising artists from New Orleans. In this regard, Chris Gray of the Houston Press noted that "Artists like Mia Borders are what makes festivals like iFest worth going to — walk up to the stage with no idea who this person is and walk away a fan." Mia Borders is scheduled to release a new album in 2012, and the soulful songwriter is eager to debut the new material in front of her loyal fans and audience.
