We were among the first rooms she played in the United States after rocking for crowds like this in Australia.

Mia Dyson is an Australian singer, songwriter, and guitarist.

Following her first release, Cold Water , in 2003, Mia went into a continuous touring schedule both in Australia and overseas. Taking in major festivals such as the East Coast Blues & Roots Music Festival, West Coast Blues & Roots Festival,Falls Festival, Womadelaide, NXNE in Canada and The Edinburgh Festival in Scotland.

2005 saw the release of her second album Parking Lots which resulted in Mia being nominated for “Best Female Artist” and “Best Blues & Roots album” at that year’s ARIA Awards, for which she won the “Best Blues & Roots album” award.

The following year, 2006 Mia toured the USA and Canada, joined Frank Zappa’s band The Mothers of Invention on stage at the Winnipeg Folk Festival, and supported Ani Di Franco in New York’s Central Park.

In 2007, Mia supported Eric Clapton during his Australian tour in February to sellout crowds. She also had a guest appearance on Australian hip hop artist Urthboy’s second album The Signal.
