Mia Schuster’s wistful new single, “Always,” will have you reflecting on the power of your most positive moments. The North Dakota-native began playing guitar at eight years old, taking her love of music and eventually turning it into a path that would become her career. After moving to Los Angeles to pursue her goals, she began working on her upcoming debut album, “Happy (Again).” Her debut single, “Land,” was featured in Atwood Magazine, and she’s performed her new tunes throughout Los Angeles, including at the famous The Hotel Cafe. With a bright pop sound that’s an equal mix of all her influences, which range from soulful jazz to contemporary pop, her music radiates with positivity, hope, and yearning.
Mia Schuster captures the unique combination of wistful sadness that comes with growing older on her new single, “Always.” Inspired by a gathering with her hometown friends, Schuster takes that impactful moment when you understand how quickly things are changing yet remain thankful for the joy of your present experience, and turns it into a vibrant musical story. Produced by William Henderson, the tracks exuberant piano-driven melody dances alongside Schuster’s emotive vocals, which give weight to knowing that you’re living through something you’ll always carry with you. The arrangement swells, all piano and rhythm, with a heavy happiness as she sings, “change will surely come, but our paths still are strung to the world that we always knew.” She mixes hope and gratefulness with the power of letting go through inspiring lyrics and an emphatic, earworm pop arrangement.
For anyone who’s lived in a moment knowing it can’t last, this song for you. Take a listen to Mia Schuster’s “Always.”
