When people see Mia Dyson live, putting the face and her tiny youthful frame to the voice they have been listening to on record or the radio waves, she usually receives a reaction of surprise.
"Where does that voice come from? With a deep gravely howl from the depths of the delta - or more precisely Victorian surfie town Torquay - petite Mia Dyson croons and growls like a woman more than double her 25 years. She has the ability to woo an audience with her rosy-cheeked sincerity and barnyard, foot stomping jams. Not only is her voice astounding, but Dyson plays a mean guitar. She glides from electric to lap steel with ease and when she invited her support act, Liz Stringer on stage for some banjo strums and harmonica blasts, Dyson had the Basement crowd whooping. But it's her voice that steals the show." Sun Herald
"She's a guitarist, songwriter and singer, but it's her voice - more guttural than just gravelly, more touched than merely smoky - that is the show stopper. Skinny young white girls aren't supposed to sound this big, soulful and black. " Sydney Morning Herald
"Mia Dyson can you do no wrong? Throwing in some new tracks in with what have now become favourites, rockin' with the still relatively new band, her sets were full both times, what do you mean you haven't seen Mia Dyson play yet? Are you crazy?" Rhythms Magazine
