Description: "Mia Dyson is an amazing talent. She had a variety of guitars scattered around her, which she swapped all through the night and sang. She was amazing. They all were, but she stood out." ABC Online The Broad Tour "She’s a guitarist, songwriter and singer, but it’s her voice - more guttural than just gravelly, more touched than merely smoky - that is the show stopper. Skinny young white girls aren’t supposed to sound this big, soulful and black.” (The Basement) Weekend Edition SMH When Mia Dyson packed her guitars, her band and a portable recording studio into her car and headed out to a friends mud brick house in Daylesford Victoria, she had no idea she was about to make one of the most talked about debut albums of 2003. Cold Water was nominated for an ARIA award and jettisoned the then 22 year-old into a continuous touring schedule both here and overseas. Taking in major festivals such as the East Coast Blues and Roots, Falls, Womadelaide, NXNE in Canada and The Edinburgh Festival in Scotland, Mia was wholeheartedly embraced by audiences and critics alike.
