Mia Borders has captured the attention of both local and national
audiences with her energetic blend of funk, soul, and contemporary
songwriting. Offbeat Magazine's Alex Rawls writes, "Note to self: Pay
more attention to Mia Borders," and USA today named Mia one of the 2010
New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival's “hidden surprises.” The
April 2010 release of her second full-length album, "Magnolia Blue,”
earned her a nomination for Best Emerging Artist at the Big Easy Music
Awards, as well as a nationally broadcast performance at N.O. Jazz Fest
She hit the road and performed at Mount Helena Music Fest, San
Jose Jazz Fest, Taos Mountain Music Fest, Voodoo Fest, Bonnaroo (VIP
pre-party with Big Sam's Funky Nation), the Kennedy Center, VOW
Festival, and Gretna Fest, among other notable venues. When she opened
for Corinne Bailey Rae at the House of Blues New Orleans in September
2010, "Borders drew the crowd in and had them cheering for more"
(NewOrleans.com). With this and much more ahead, Mia Borders has
secured her role as one of the fastest rising artists from New Orleans.
