Mietta is a singer whose genre defies neat labels or pigeonholes. Her influences span jazz, blues, latin, soul, funk and Flamenco. She has successfully shaped an amalgam of all of the above into her own
Mietta is now poised to take her music to the world.
Her debut album “A Mad Distance,” named after one of her late mother’s novels, is now available for purchase on Bandcamp and iTunes.
Mietta’s desire to study music has taken her around the globe. Inspired by gypsy and Flamenco rhythms, Mietta travelled to Madrid where she performed and recorded with some of Spain’s leading Flamenco artists. This period culminated in offers of recording contracts, and onstage appearances before enthusiastic audiences in Madrid.
Back in Australia, Mietta resumed writing music, performing at gigs and sharing stages with noted artists and performers. And, as her reputation grew, Mietta was requested to sing at an increasing number of private functions and high profile events.
In 2011, Mietta, in conjunction with producer Damien Charles, assembled a number of Melbourne’s A-list jazz and Flamenco musicians to begin work on an album.
4 years on, the result is “A Mad Distance,” a showcase for Mietta’s talent as singer, songwriter and bandleader. The music is an intriguing and fresh mix of styles blended together and performed with unerring control and virtuosity.
Mietta’s electrifying stage presence has now been captured on record.
Her passion, groove and excitement are combined with stunning performances from the assembled musicians, including 17-piece orchestra. Lush arrangements and standout production complete the picture.
