MIA PINERO, FROM BROADWAY’S WEST SIDE STORY, TO RELEASE HER DEBUT ALBUM “GROWING UP” 

AVAILABLE ON ALL STREAMING PLATFORMS ON TUESDAY, MARCH 15

(New York, NY) Monday, January 31st, 2022 – Mia Pinero is thrilled to release her debut album, Growing Up, a ‘musical journal entry’ preserving a moment unlike any other. From waiting in the wings as an understudy in the highly anticipated revival of West Side Story, to making her Broadway debut as Maria, Mia Pinero’s star was on the rise, until a global pandemic landed her back in her hometown of Racine, Wisconsin. Months of deep reflection sparked newfound realizations that evolved into stripped down interpretations of Musical theatre and Pop classics, ranging from the lyric driven brilliance of Stephen Sondheim to the soulful, boundary pushing compositions of Donald Glover. Including beloved hits such as ‘The Nearness of You’, ‘Stop This Train’, and ‘Children Will Listen’, Growing Up explores what it means to reconnect to your past and uncover its difficult yet hopeful complexities, leading to perhaps the most vital growth yet. 

‘Growing Up’ features piano, mixing and arrangements by Alex Thompson, and is co-produced by Mia Pinero and Alex Thompson. The album also includes Brett Scott on engineering, mixing, and mastering with Alex Nielsen on engineering and recording the album. The album was mixed and mastered at BNB Audio in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. 

Alex Makoto Simpson is the Album Cover Photographer, and Christopher Boudewyns the Portrait Photographer.
