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.
