Editor: Could you tell us a bit about yourself and how you entered the music industry?
Mia Black: My name is Mia Black. I’m 12 years old from Ireland. Growing up, I always had musicians around me. My family is very musical. I learned most of what I know from just humming & singing along with songs. YouTube videos were really helpful too. Recently, I have started learning guitar & Ukulele. Pop is definitely my favorite Genre.
Editor: Tell us about your achievements as a musician?
Mia: My Dad once said I was humming in tune (in a very basic sense) with the speakerphone dial tone since when I was around 7 months old that was before I could even talk.
I have 4 x demo CD’s, 2 recorded in a studio & 2 live. In June, I was invited to Florida to Colab with Interval 941. Interval 941 are sons of Boyce Avenue. Recording & filming in the Boyce Avenue Studio’s was so amazing. The team & their families are all so friendly. I had so much fun 🙂
Editor: If you weren’t a singer/musician, what would you be doing right now?
Mia: Probably acting as I love acting as much as singing 🙂
Editor: Where did you get that confidence to perform on stage?
Mia: Definitely most of it has come from Galway busking, Galway is in the west of Ireland! The 1st time I busked was in August 2018, I was age 11. I was nervous at the beginning but after 2 or 3 times, busking became much easier…
