New Orleans, LA (PRWEB) May 14, 2012
Mia Borders is still going strong. The singer-songwriter released her seventh effort, “Wherever There Is,” on April 18th for her independently owned label, Blaxican Records. She and her funk-rock & soul band are currently touring the country in support of the release, with upcoming dates in Arkansas, Colorado, Tennessee, Florida, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and her native Louisiana. A detailed calendar is available at http://www.miaborders.com.
Recorded at The Music Shed in New Orleans, the twelve-song collection features eleven original songs, written and produced by Borders, as well as her well-known rendition of Bill Withers’ “Use Me.” Featured on the album are New Orleans pros Rob Lee and Michael Matthews (drums), Peter Fuller and Jesse Morrow (bass), Joe Shirley (keys), Takeshi Shimmura (guitar), Khris Royal (sax), Ashlin Parker (trumpet), Craig Klein (trombone), Jack Craft (cello), Sam Craft (violin), and Jermal Watson (percussion).
USA Today commended Borders’ recent New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival performance that “forcefully delivered her […] tough blues” and “showcased her songwriting ability” (Jerry Shriver). The Washington Post called Borders a “bright new star” before her debut at The Kennedy Center in D.C. last August (Stephanie Green), and The Washington Examiner referred to Borders’ previous releases as “musical gems” (Marie Gullard).
“Wherever There Is” is available for in-store purchase at Louisiana Music Factory in New Orleans, as well as all of Borders’ live performances. The album – along with Borders’ previous releases – is also available for digital download at all major digital music stores, including iTunes Music Store, and for physical purchase at miaborders.com, cdbaby.com, and Amazon.com.
