Mindy Smith is an amazing singer and songwriter based in Nashville. We're big fans - Daniel especially. Mei caught up with Mindy for this short Q&A. Check it out!  



Where and when was your first show?

I honestly cannot recall, but I can say that every show is new and different.

What band/artist would you consider to be your main influence?

So many,  but I have found that Sarah Vaughan is my comfort listen, no matter what mood I'm in.

What is one of your most memorable or off-the-wall touring experiences?

I once performed as part of a live exhibit at the Guggenheim, New York.  Off the wall is an understatement and the experience was like no other. I did feel bad for all of the bees in the big glass box (just some insight on how odd it was).

Favorite Food: Nothing beats a proper fresh New York bagel toasted with a schmear of Temp Tee cream cheese (hold the raisins please)

Favorite Drink: It depends on what time of the day it is.

If you were to have a film/movie based on your career, which actors or band would you select to portray yourself?

I think that if they're going for an Oscar nomination, Merrill Streep... or Betty White she's pretty hot right now too.

What two words would best describe your music? Honest and vulnerable.
