BIOGRAPHY

For Mindy, the past several years were defined by a transition away from Mormonism which was, considering the implications, a torrentially daring move, but one brought on by a growing intolerance to the traditionally oppressive Mormon views on women’s rights and the rights of the LGBTQ community. Mindy is quick to point out that in certain corners of the Mormon Church, the tide is changing, updating as both members and former members are speaking out in favor of equality. She’s a supporter of Middle Eastern feminist fashion brand Agent GirlPower. She’s been featured regularly on progressive Mormon podcasts and she is a vocal LGBTQ ally. Mindy’s personal journey as a woman growing up in a religion exclusively governed by patriarchal authority was equally motivating, but while these day-to-day experiences could prove to be fraught with sadness, Mindy did not fail to see the humor in fighting to bare her shoulders, transition from symbolic undergarments to contemporary underwear and even drink coffee… She says, “I would make coffee in a dark corner of the garage because it wasn’t something my family was comfortable with. I wanted to know why sugary, carbonated, caffeinated sodas are OK to choose as a Mormon, but why coffee, a drink made from a bean, is not OK.” Mindy’s story speaks to the growing number of young Americans who are disillusioned with fundamental religion. “I want to build bridges of love and respect in my Mormon community. That love and respect starts with me and my journey to love a collective I have felt wounded by.” "Making this album and creating these songs was my therapy while going through that faith transition,” said Mindy in a recent interview with the Salt Lake City Weekly, “Every record I've ever made is a chronicle of what I've been going through at that point in my life. Music is just how I process my life experiences." In essence, Rabbit Hole feels like liberation set to music. Despite a fairly specific theme, the album quite intentionally succeeds in communicating a universal message of equality and love with a surprisingly disarming approach. Songs like the powerful, “Boo Hoo!,” whose video is set to drop next week, the lilting “Bluebird,” the buoyant and gentle, “One,” the lush “Wandering Souls,” and the brilliant title track (as well as the 6 other songs on the album) are all about love and freedom. Says Mindy, "Whoever you are, you're going to go down some kind of rabbit hole where your paradigm is turned upside-down and you're forced to look at life from different angles. Divorce, the loss of a loved one, really any kind of disorienting experience.”
