CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Mississippi Rising - MIA BORDERS

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 '10. 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" ( With this and much more ahead, Mia Borders has secured her role as one of the fastest rising artists from New Orleans. Her collection of albums – 2007’s “the ep,” 2008’s “The Nashville Cuts,” 2009’s “Southern Fried Soul,” and 2010’s “Magnolia Blue” and “Live at House of Blues New Orleans” – all feature original music and are available at and wherever digital music is sold.
