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 talents. The Times-Picayune described her as “confident and cool,” while USA Today characterized both Borders and her original material as “deeply funky.” New Orleans’ own Offbeat Magazine applauded Borders and her “great music and great intensity.”
After entering the professional music scene in 2006, Borders has released music every year since. Her impressive catalogue features two EPs, five LPs, one live album, and her newest single, 2014’s “My Darling Love.”
In support of her releases, Borders tours frequently, while remaining based in New Orleans. She performs 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, Chattanooga’s Night Fall, Telluride Cajun Festival, Voice of the Wetlands, Memphis’ Levitt Shell, Wakarusa, Long’s Park Amphitheater, 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.
