“Most would consider Porter a late-bloomer, but creating music as sublime as what she’s done on okay takes years to cultivate.” – The Revue

Mia Porter (NL) debuted last spring May 14th with her EP okay – a poetic reflection on time, identity and culture where she dwells on heavy topics and larger narratives from a personal, anecdotal point of view. okay is a self-produced collection of five songs that move from a gentle ebb to hypnotizing. Grooving art-pop, moody story telling and quirky, playful

February 4th Highclouds premiered the first single pivot which later ended up in their half- yearly list of “Best tracks of 2021 (so far)”. “(…) these tongue-in-cheek embellishments build throughout the track, lending playful quirk, but never getting in the way of the song’s absolutely undeniable groove. They invite the listener to share Porter’s eyebrow-raised view of our
collective ego.” – Highclouds

Shortly followed up by the singles mercy: a playful, beguiling song and celebration of fragility, and the critically acclaimed daisies, the last single and opener of the EP “which is the equivalent of an enchanting mystery. Its arrangement is delicate yet mesmerizing, sounding like a composition Toro y Moi would create for an Aldous Harding song.” – The Revue

Raised with the sounds of a.o. Tom Waits and Lou Reed and inspired also by Aldous Harding, Timber Timbre, Cate Le Bon, Andy Shauf Porters voice is described as crisp, dark and sensual.

“A cadence of a poet with a wry attention to detail and an unflinching focus on storytelling”. – Two Story Melody

“The songs don’t push or shove you; they are intoxicating and persuasive and collect you from the start and carry you through start to finish. Porter has a confidence to its sound that makes you feel sure that you have lived with Porter’s music for years. As accomplished a debut I can remember .” – Joyzine

“A widely talented artist” – Two Story Melody

“One of the great little alt-folk records.” – The Revue

“The singer brings to life her poetry and personality throughout the clever and versatile lyrical content. Impossible not to like.” – Vinyl Chapters
