Mia VermillionMia Vermillion
Blues Singer, Songwriter with
Soul and Grace

Mia Vermillion's presence on the blues scene has the admired attention of both fans and critics alike. Based out of the
Pacific Northwest, a current hot bed for blues talent, her 2009 independent debut CD titled
Alone Together With the Blues sealed Mia's transition into national awareness. Tracks from her debut record continue to play on both terrestrial radio and
XM Sirius satellite radio.

In spring 2009, right after the relase of her album, an unfortunate injury set Mia back and kept her from performing for nearly two years. But as a testament to her depth and breadth of talent and determination for well-being, she returned to performance in 2011 to tear up the main stage at the Waterfront Blues Festival in Portland, Oregon. Mia also opened two nights for Grammy nominee and Blues Hall of Fame inductee John Hammond at Seattle's Jazz Alley. She has spent 2012 touring regionally at prominent festivals and well-known venues, and working on the beginnings of her next recording project.

Whether performing with a solid rhythm section and guitar behind her, or in a solo performance with her guitar, Mia Vermillion brings her own songs, beats and style to the blues creating a fresh unique sound. Mia's voice and stage presence has been described as sultry and intoxicating.

Her charismatic stage presence is supported by a crew of very gifted musicians: Jason Edwards, a talented young drummer out of Seattle; various notable Northwest bassists; and Rod Cook on slide and acoustic guitar. Collectively, these musicians have performed and recorded with such noteworthy artists as Heart, Taj Mahal, Vicci Martinez, The Halyards, and James Curley Cooke of the Steve Miller Band.

Mia's independent debut CD received national attention and rave reviews, boasting airplay on The Roots Music Report Blues Radio chart Top 50 (2 weeks at #45 and #46) as well as rocketing to #2 on XM Radios B.B.
