NEW MUSIC: Singer-songwriter Mia LJ releases first single ‘These Are The Years’

January 14, 2016

Check out ‘These Are The Years’, written and independently recorded by soul-infused indie rocker Mia LJ (now 18) when she was just 14-years-old. LJ is a multi-instrument musician who has been making music since age five. ‘These are the Years’ is one of a two throwback tracks that will be featured on Mia’s upcoming debut EP.

“With ‘These Are The Years’ (single), I remember being in the car and a sort of fast-paced / upbeat lyric flow popped into my head. I immediately started writing (using the notes app on a cell phone). At that point in my life, I was very green to the industry so I felt so intensely motivated and driven to achieve the goals I’d set. The lyrics touch a lot on staying grounded as everything I dreamed of came to fruition and I continued working towards playing larger shows, traveling, and the other duties that come along with this career,” the singer tells Audio Love.
