New York’s Spike Hill is a small, intimate venue in Williamsburg, but when Mia Dyson took the stage , the room became overwhelmed with the sounds of an artist much bigger and better than the room itself.

It’s this unique and powerful talent that brought Mia to the USA recently, to record, tour and create some videos for her upcoming album, The Moment which is due out in August. Her powerful voice and bluesy-style fits this country beautifully, and as she continued to travel around the States, it seemed there wasn’t a city or town that was overlooked. Her backing band was a group of talented individual musicians who themselves form an outfit called Hotels and Highways. She paired up with them seamlessly, and in a unique rotational arrangement, Mia actually joined the band itself after her set as it headlined the show.

Having recently gone public about her creative split with Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics, it’s tough to think that she almost took hold of her career in an entirely different way. But after seeing her earnest, soulful style and room-warming style in New York, one can’t help but think she made the right choice.

Her tour now over, she’s back in Australia playing for crowds back home. But with such strong connections here in the USA, there’s no doubt that she’ll be back soon – and it would be well worth it to make sure you check her out on her return.

In the meantime, you can download a free sampler, featuring her song and others by members of Hotels and Highways via her website. Check out some photos from her New York gig, and the video for her new single, “When The Moment Comes,” shot in Los Angeles, below them.
