Mia Borders

Mia is one of those rare young talents that can sing about life, love, and loss and make listeners feel it. With lyrics so personal, so mature, and so direct, she has established herself as an artist to watch. In early 2006, Mia and a few talented friends joined forces as a funk-rock-soul group that was quickly hailed as "New Orleans' hottest buzz band" by Where Y'at Magazine. The band made an instant impression on the local music scene, playing legendary New Orleans stages like Tipitina's, Howlin' Wolf, Blue Nile, Carrollton Station, and The Parish at the House of Blues, to name a few.

The group's collection of albums - 2007's "the ep," 2008's "The Nashville Cuts," and 2009's "Southern Fried Soul" - all feature original music written by rhythm guitarist Borders and arranged with her band. The group consists of Pablo Gonzalez (bass), Nick Hingel (drums), and Kyle Sclafani (lead guitar). 2010 brings the group's latest effort, "Magnolia Blue," slated for an April release.
