Mia and The Moon are two folk sisters singing originals and covers in harmony with guitar & piano. Our music is on Spotify and iTunes
Dubbed “Mesmerising” by Mel B of the Spice Girls, “Visually and Artistically Beautiful” by Rush, and “Fresh New Talent” by Vintage TV, this is the story of two sisters who began singing together as toddlers at National Bluegrass Festivals alongside musical parents – their father performed with Dolly Parton while mother, Kathy wrote the song Kaleidoscopes – which became a song of much importance further down the line… After famously walking out of Simon Cowell’s ITV show ‘XFactor in 2012 (when producers asked the sisters to stage fights for cameras), Mia and the Moon vowed to self-fund and produce their own music, the fruits of which became an 11 track studio album titled ‘Fall Awake’ released two years later. Laura learned to play the piano, Mary-Anne was already nimble on an acoustic guitar, and drummer ‘Sam Winterton’ was recruited completing a UK tour line up. 'Fall Awake' steadily took momentum when ‘Moments’ was nominated for a ‘SAFTA’ in South Africa as part of the sound design for feature film/documentary ‘Alison’, ‘Midnight in London’ was used as the soundtrack for Ellen Degeneres London Documentary, ‘Seldom See Ya’ was added to the BBC Introducing repeat playlist, The Huffington Post Documented a trip out to New York and the album was received well by critics and fans. The year Culminated in a nomination for Best Folk/Country Act at the Radio 1’s Unsigned Music Awards 2016, a Fuerteventura Residency and and invitation to be part of a digital sculpture erected in Leicester, celebrating creatives within the local community. Mia and the Moon toured the 2017 Folk Festivals alongside Fairport Convention and Eddie Reader and worked on writing new material. Mia and the Moon are avid ambassadors for animal rights and have helped raise thousands of pounds for the charities including the ‘International Animal Rescue, RSPCA, PDSA, Jerry Green Dog Rescue, Wildlife Trust. The original prints from the ‘Fall Awake’ sleeve artwork were auctioned during the album launch party with all proceeds donated to Donkey Charity ‘Spana’, and in publicizing these efforts, Laura and Mary-Anne hope to support and highlight the work of animal charities and environmental organisations.
