ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“Music has never been just a thing I do. It’s a feel­ing — it defines me, and with­out it I would be lost. My life’s poignant and recur­ring theme is music. Music is me, is life, is love…”

Born in Pre­to­ria, South Africa, Mia Verdoorn’s love, as stated above, and obvi­ous gifts for music started early on, and began to take a pro­fes­sional turn at the age of 11. Pos­sess­ing tal­ent and poise beyond her years, it did not take long for Mia to begin to draw notable atten­tion, and at the age of 16, she began record­ing with promi­nent music fig­ures in her home coun­try, find­ing her­self work­ing along­side pro­duc­ers for shows such as Idols, and South Africa’s Got Talent.

Mia earned other notable acco­lades along the way, such as hon­ors from The Asso­ci­ated Board of the Royal Schools of Music. Despite her youth, Mia’s tal­ent soon landed pres­ti­gious invi­ta­tions to share her musi­cal exper­tise, serv­ing at age 18 as an adju­di­ca­tor for major music events, such as the Uni­ver­sity of Johannesburg’s Vocal Ser­e­nade com­pe­ti­tion. Her abil­i­ties and indus­try savvy also landed her a cov­eted intern­ship at Sony Music and Warner Music, where she worked on major motion pic­ture sound­tracks such as Sex and the City 2.

With a gift for cre­at­ing floor to ceil­ing melodies and soar­ing, ethe­real tones, it is no sur­prise that Mia was given a schol­ar­ship to attend the pres­ti­gious Berklee Col­lege of Music in Boston, MA, thus begin­ning the sec­ond stage of her career in the United States. In 2011 Mia gained the impres­sive dis­tinc­tion of hav­ing grad­u­ated Summa Cum Laude with a dual degree in Vocal Per­for­mance and Music Busi­ness from Berklee’s rig­or­ous curriculum.

Mia’s career has con­tin­ued to flour­ish in the US. At the age of 21, some of Mia’s many acco­lades and out­stand­ing accom­plish­ments include sold out shows in 2009 and 2010, and being selected as one of the few vocal­ists to per­form in the 2010 Berklee Singer’s Show­case, which hon­ors Berklee’s most tal­ented singers, includ­ing past appear­ances by Paula Cole, at the Berklee Per­for­mance Center.

Other major hon­ors to date include being asked to per­form along­side Michael McDon­ald (Doo­bie Broth­ers, Steely Dan) for the 2011 Berklee Com­mence­ment Con­cert, at one of Boston’s largest event cen­ters, the Agan­nis Arena, to an audi­ence of 4,000 peo­ple.

Stay tuned and keep com­ing back to check Mia’s upcom­ing itin­er­ary: there will be many sur­pris­ing appear­ances in upcom­ing seasons.
