Mia was inspired to sing jazz by artists who use their voice as instruments. When she first heard Bobby McFerrin sing, she felt a playful and adventuresome improviser lived in her as well. Study with Jay Clayton, Janet Lawson and Rhiannon and Bobby gave her the tools to take the stage as an improvising jazz vocalist.
Her love of Brazilian music led to study with Brazilian master vocalist Luciana Souza. Mia has found the perfect match for her warm voice and soulful singing in Brazilian jazz, bringing beauty, improvisation and earthy groove together in perfect harmony.
