Mia Borders

Mia Borders is blossoming into one of the most intriguing artists emerging from New Orleans today. Mia has become known for blending energetic funk, blues and rock with emotional lyrics and a deeply soulful voice. Alison Fensterstock of The Times Picayune described Mia as, “a singer-songwriter sui generis, playing sultry, often confessional original tunes cloaked in a thorny coat of high-energy and blues-rock riffage; sometimes, she calls to mind Ani DiFranco, but funkier.”  Offbeat magazine called her latest album Quarter Life Crisis, 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, Telluride Cajun Fest, Houston iFest, Wakarusa, Voodoo Music Festival, Festival International de la Louisiane and Voice of the Wetlands among others. Her national praise and attention brought her local acclaim when she was one of only a handful of local acts picked to join the roster of international stars at the 19th annual Essence Festival.
