Like That from Mia Laren, is a next level pop song with an extremely cool melody. Mia Laren is a singer, songwriter and producer from Baltimore, Maryland. Mia’s music career began less than a year ago when she began producing many originals from her laptop. Mia grew up in a musical family, supporting her father with his local band. She began singing at the age of 10 when she was accepted into the Peabody Choir. As Mia’s love for music grew, she began to take interest in dance. Mia graduated from UMBC with a Bachelor’s of the art in dance. When she began making music, she used the rhythm and expression of dance to create empowering musical pieces that replicated her life. This is only the beginning.
Mia said, “I came from a childhood where I was bullied by friends, teachers, classmates, family, etc. I was constantly being torn down. I remember my drama teacher telling me personally after I sang a song that we are not all singers in front of the classroom. I remember my ex-best friend telling me that my singing voice was terrible. When I began creating music, it allowed me to blossom like a flower. I was able to share the part of me that had been trapped inside me for many years due to the opinions of others. I have realized today that those who are insecure will project their insecurities on you to make themselves feel better. I stopped taking words personally and I began to grow stronger. The nerdy, shy girl who was too shy to even raise her hand in the classroom is now braver than ever before. Music unleashes my soul. My song “like that” is my sensual side of me. We can all relate. When you gain your confidence, you begin to know who you are and what you want. You begin to take charge of your life. Let’s take charge of our life, like that…”
