Mia Borders and her Funk-Rock & Soul band have been touring New Orleans in support of their latest release, “Southern Fried Soul,” under the singer-songwriter’s own independent label, Blaxican Records. The eleven-song collection is the band’s second effort together, following their debut, “the ep,” from 2007.
Produced by Borders and hitmaker William J. Smith in Nashville, TN, the album features all original songs, written by rhythm guitarist Borders and composed with her band – Pablo Gonzalez (bass), Nick Hingel (drums), and Kyle Sclafani (lead guitar). Also featured on the album are Nashville piano pro, Jim Wilson and New York sax player Cyrus McGoldrick.
Hailed as “New Orleans’ hottest buzz band” by the City’s own, Where Y’at Magazine, and named one of “97 Quirky New Orleans Discoveries” by New Orleans Magazine, Mia Borders has left a lasting impression on her hometown’s local music scene. The blend of rock, funk, soul, and R&B combined with a powerfully sultry voice makes Mia Borders the local phenomenon the band has so quickly become.
