The latest from New Orleans native Mia Borders packs a soulful punch. Fever Dreams shines with Borders' unique modern R&B sound while integrating heartfelt storytelling. Heralded locally and nationally as a great talent, Borders has been featured on’s coverage of The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, and has performed at such renowned venues as Essence Festival, Brazil’s Bourbon Street Music Festival, House of Blues New Orleans, Tipitina’s, and The Kennedy Center for Performing Arts.

Fever Dreams opens with the Caribbean-influenced title track, 'Fever Dreams' and quickly moves into the catchy 'Leave Me Alone' and guitar heavy 'Cool Breeze.' The fourth track, 'Sugar In My Soul,' features a guest appearance from another local favorite, John Papa Gros. Borders' songwriting skills pop on the soulful 'Find Another Lover,' emphatic 'Love Abuse,' and the closing song, sweet 'Sand/Stone.'

Fever Dreams is available on mp3 and CD directly from Mia Borders and on Google Play, iTunes and Amazon. Catch her performing live at Oak (8118 Oak St.) on Saturday, January 14 at 9p. She is also a frequent performer at New Orleans many outdoor festivals and concert series.
