We are so fortunate to have the chance to hear the great blues singer Mia Vermillion appear on stage at the Chalet Theater at the Enumclaw Music and Arts Festival October 5th. Here is what you should know about her. (info from her website) "Mia Vermillion is based out of the Pacific Northwest, a current hot bed for blues talent. Her 2009 independent debut CD titled "Alone Together With the Blues" " transformed Mia from an unknown to a regionally and nationally known blues songstress, shinning a spotlight on blues talent emerging out of Seattle. Mia's recordings received 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 Radio's B.B. King’s Bluesville’s ‘Picks to Click’ with her recording of I'm Going to Copyright Your Kisses. Tracks from her debut record continue to play on both terrestrial radio and XM Sirius satellite radio."
"Don't put this lady as an opening act, she deserves top billing..." – Blues Blast Magazine
"VERMILLION is a fresh and welcome arrival on the blues (and jazz) scene… She infuses her singing with more humidity than Ma Rainey and more sex than Lena Horn." – AllAboutJazz.com
"...Mia Vermillion stands as one of the most talented [blues/jazz artist], with her silky sensuous vocals." – Blues Bytes Magazine
All this and much more for only a $10 entrance fee.
