Mia’s fifth album, Manzanita, marked her return to the indie world. It was produced in collaboration with longtime friends, Brent Rademaker and Rob Campanella. While some songs were reserved for just her voice and guitar or piano, others feature cameo appearances by members of Dead Meadow, Beachwood Sparks, The Tyde, Brian Jonestown Massacre, and the entire band Future Pigeon. It was released on the community-based label, Plug Research, in February 2005, and Mia toured the US and Europe much of that year.
