Mia Lewis: NME Cover

A while back on this blog I asked whatever became of Mia Lewis, Duffy-esque chanteuse from Abercraf, who released several singles in the mid-60s. Her daughter was kind enough to send me an email with some info. Mia is alive and well but no longer sings professionally. She married Vernon Mills who was once the bass guitarist in Tom Jones's band The Squires. Her best recorded song is the catchy Onion which was a b-side and should really have been released as an a-side. In the above picture, you can see that Mia even made the front cover of the New Musical Express (April 9, 1965).
