The last time that we saw Mia Borders was with 10,000 or so music lovers at one of the largest stages at JazzFest. She was playing with an all star band, and the set was a piece of JazzFest magic. We can't wait for her to return to play an intimate show for Red Boots Roots. Here is Mia from the world famous Cayamo Fais Do Do.
Mia Borders Live
Born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana, Mia Borders’ original music genuinely reflects the oft-referenced melting pot of her hometown. Her catalogue of nine commercial releases spans from 2007’s pop-rock-influenced “the ep” to 2016’s R&B LP “Fever Dreams.”
Heralded locally and nationally as one of New Orleans’ best talents, Borders has been featured on AXS.tv’s coverage of The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, and has performed at such renowned venues as Essence Festival, Brazil’s Bourbon Street Music Festival, House of Blues New Orleans, Tipitina’s, Santa Cruz Blues Fest, Chattanooga’s Night Fall, Voice of the Wetlands, Memphis’ Levitt Shell, Wakarusa, Long’s Park Amphitheater, 2012 Food & Wine Classic, and The Kennedy Center for Performing Arts.
Her live shows are regularly praised as “deeply funky” (USA Today) and “confident and cool” (The Times-Picayune). Borders herself is “a chanteuse of the highest order,” with “miles of style and charisma” (AXS.com). New Orleans’ own Offbeat Magazine applauded Borders and her “great music and great intensity.”
