Alone Together With the Blues  
Alone Together With the Blues - June 2009 Release

Independently releasing her debut album Alone Together With The Blues in June of 2009, Mia formulated a sound of sensuous, earthy blues. The record gained national attention reaching both the Roots Music Top 50 Blues Chart  and The Living Blues List. I’m Going To Copyright Your Kisses moved to the #2 spot on ”Pick to Click” – XM Radio Bluesville. During it’s release the album stayed at #1 on the Washington state chart for the Roots Music Report holding that position for 5 months. The record highlights a well-matched styling between Mia’s vocal sway and Orville Johnson’s emotive acoustic guitar and dobro mastery. Beautifully recorded, it contains a well-founded collection of tunes from early blues artists and includes two of Mia’s own compositions: “Little Bit of Love” and “Love’s Lost and Found.”
