mindy and me

Last Saturday night I had a "scoop of vanilla ice cream in a strawberry soda." That's because I got to hear Mindy sing. And that's how one person described her voice.

Mr. Fish and I,  and our friends D&C, headed over to Cedar City, sat outside in the perfect fall air, ate caramel Kettle corn, and got to listen to this:

What is it that draws you to a particular musical artist? 

I thought about what I like and then evaluated how Mindy Gledhill stacks up.

own personal style. CHECK
dreamy voice.  CHECK
beauty. CHECK
humor.  CHECK
heart.  CHECK
charm. CHECK
inspiration.  CHECK
authenticity.  CHECK
accessibility.  CHECK
great shoes.  CHECK
band members with cool hair. CHECK
bejeweled antique mannequins that display fan clothing.  CHECK
likes to twirl: CHECK
plays the guitar: WELL, SORTA. That gets a half - CHE

What about things you don't like? Here's my list and, again, how Mindy stacks up:

arrogance.  NOPE
lyrics about trucks and drunks. NOPE
stays an octave above middle C: NOPE
screaming guitars. NOPE
screaming voice.  NOPE
screaming admission price. NOPE

Alrighty then. See what I mean. How could you NOT love Mindy G? Her concert was great, great! I swayed and sang and smiled the whole time. Her music is original, uncomplicated yet profound, and inspiring without being unctious (I've been dying to use that word in a sentence). Her voice is silky and smooth and could melt the wool right off a baby lamb. Not that Mindy would ever do that. She's too nice. And I'm not saying that just because she put a picture of me on her blog.

You can get Mindy's new Anchor CD here. Or, if you want to see her in person AND buy her CD, come see her live in St. George, UT on Oct 16, 2010 at Jazzy Java Coffee Shop. You won't be sorry. It's true Charlie.
