Mia Silvas on "Onder Invloed"

Posted on 18 June 2008

Onder Invloed is a project by music journalist Matthijs van der Ven, from The Netherlands. The project title is Dutch for ?Under Influence?, and the idea started in the summer of 2007, while reading Bob Dylan's "Chronicles".

Already, bands from all over The Netherlands and abroad are lining up to be part of the show, and Mia Silvas was one such artist asked to be involved.

You can see Mia's "Onder Invloed" performance at www.onderinvloed.com where she chose to record not three, but five songs together with her guitar player - and best friend Ryan Haberfield. Included in this performance are songs from My Chemical Romance, Rihanna, Eva Cassidy, Al Green and Michael McDonald. So, there?s a lot of variety in this extra long session.

We hope you enjoy it!
