Mia Dyson
You And Me
Black Door Records
www.miadyson.com


Singer-songwriter Mia Dyson has smoky timbres reminiscent of KT Tunstall. The songs on her 4-track EP, You And Me, have a folksy rock coloring that shares traits with The Pretenders in the soft simmering embers of "Never Felt Young" and the booming bass drumbeats of the title track. The gentle voicing of Dyson's singing on "Never Felt Young" has a bluesy feel, which moves with the momentum of a rolling surf on "Choose". There is a romantic lure in Dyson's vocal inflections which penetrate the inner channels of the melodies giving them emotional depth.

Mia Dyson has a way of reeling people into her life with her Janis Joplin-like bawling on "I Meant Something To You Once". Dyson's singing bares her soul while keeping in time with the tempo of the brushed strokes of the guitar. Dyson never relinquishes her autonomy, but she never strays from following the melodic patterns wherever they take her.
