Mia Dyson is an award-winning guitarist and singer/songwriter who has toured the country with the likes of Eric Clapton, Bonnie Raitt, Chris Isaak and many more. A multiple ARIA & APRA award-winning artist, Dyson has been named one of Australia’s top 25 guitarists of all time.
Growing up in the Australian bush and in the sleepy beach town of Torquay, Mia Dyson became fascinated by the mythology of American rock & roll when she was just a kid. “I was raised listening to American music almost exclusively—my dad was a big blues fan, my mom loved Bob Dylan and all the poets,” says the L.A.-based singer/songwriter. “Very early on I was aware of all the places in America where this incredible music was made, like Memphis and Detroit and Muscle Shoals.”
Since moving to Los Angeles in 2010, Dyson’s triumphs have included opening for Stevie Nicks at the Santa Barbara Bowl, in addition to self-releasing Idyllwild, The Moment and If I Only Said So Far I Take It Back to critical acclaim.
