ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Mia Katherine Boyle

Influenced by the the Blues and the 60’s sounds of singer/songwriters such as Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen, Mia Boyle has fashioned a sound from her early exposure to such harmonically driven bands as CSN&Y, The Beach Boys and the British sounds from the 60’s and 70’s: The Beatles, The Kinks, Dusty Springfield, a steady diet of blues legends: Billie Holiday, Robert Johnson, Howlin Wolf and early Motown: The Supremes, Marvin Gaye, and Otis Redding.

Having several bands to her credit, Mia released this solo record in 1998. The stripped-down, acoustic I Am A Diver was met with unexpected adulation and garnered her a spot in the Bumbershoot Festival. Utilizing vintage equipment and multiple tracks, Mia weaves together a simple, rhythmic background texture that supports strong melodic vocal lines and confessional lyrics.

A subsequent solo album is Long Live The Days, the follow-up to I Am A Diver. Working with a band of veteran musicians the results are a stunning album of songs that expand the textural sound of the ‘Diver’ songs (combining blues/rock with rythmic drive, hooks and texture) realized with a 9 piece band, including pedal steel and trumpets. Search iTunes for LLTD.
