Product description

Product Description

The world got its first introduction to Mindy Smith nearly a decade ago, when she won over Dolly Parton lovers with an elegantly pleading cover of "Jolene," then promptly added to their number fans of wide-ranging Americana, connoisseurs of confessional songcraft, appreciators of mature pop melodicism and seekers of spiritual heft with her Vanguard Records debut One Moment More and the three albums that followed. As adept as the Long Island native and Nashville fixture has shown herself to be at sifting through the hidden contents of her heart for the big questions and small breakthroughs that mean as much to her listeners as they do to her, people will be struck by the deeply expressive artist they encounter on Mindy Smith, her fittingly self-titled and first truly independent album. Produced by Jason Lehning and Mindy Smith. Featuring a core band of Bryan Sutton, Lex Price, Jason Lehning, Ian Fitchuk, Joe Pisapia, and Dan Dugmore. Additional backing vocals by Kate York. Julie Lee and Sarah Siskind.

Review

'I used to think that despite a consistent high standard of work, Smith would never be able to top her extraordinary début album. With this superb new release, I think I might have to revise that opinion.' --Cmp

'This may very well be her defining moment as an artist and as a writer...I just love the warm textured tones she gets on the tracks, and also the emotion out into this simple yet powerful project.' --Alan Ceckett, Maverick * * * *

"Mindy has a high, pure voice that certainly suits her brand of Country/Blues/Americana, though it probably also helps that she writes some excellent songs and has a crack band of musicians behind her"
"Lovers of the classic contemporary Americana sound should certainly investigate this CD. Classy indeed." --Blues Matters

By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 4 July 2013
Format: Audio CD
Although this is country music, it's not the kind that the major Nashville labels produce these days, nor what they produced in the old days despite the clearly heard presence of a steel guitar on several tracks. Mindy's clear soprano voice does not twang, and there are no songs that appear obviously designed to attract radio airplay. The title track has been released as a single, while Tin can and Pretending the stars sound like they could be possible single releases, but I'll be very pleasantly surprised if a major hit single emerges from the album.

At first, I couldn't make sense of the title track, but eventually, after playing the album a few times, I came to the conclusion that it is about a young person leaving the family home they were born into, to make their own way in the world, which most of us have done at some point. I've heard several different songs that share the title Take me back, and there's another here. Like all the tracks, it is an original that Mindy wrote or (in the case of some of the others) co-wrote.

Perhaps the saddest song is Sober, in which Mindy appears to be contemplating suicide. I just hope this song is inspired by what she has observed rather than what she has felt personally, although there appears to be a sequel in When you're walking on my grave. At least Mindy is alive and well as I write this, touring to promote the album. Another song here has a reassuring title, Everything will be fine, although that song is about a dying widowed mother.

So this is an album for quiet contemplation, full of excellent, thoughtful songs, superbly sung.

Long Island Shores was the first album of Mindy Smith's output I bought and I loved it. Then I bought One Moment More and liked that. Next came Stupid Love which was good but did not hit me like the previous two albums. Now I have this self-titled effort, which is not what I was hoping for. The question is is Mindy Smith Folk or Country or is she that strange creature they call Americana. Personally speaking I much prefer her when she's folk, which is probably why I prefer her earlier albums which to me were far more folky tthan country. This is a very good Country album as other reviewers have stated but I personally would like Mindy to release another album more along the lines of Long Island Shores which to me is her best release to date.
