We're happy to announce that "Coming Home", Mindy's new CD, has been
released. Like "in His eyes", Mindy's first devotional CD, "Coming
Home" is a collection of non-denominational "folk hymns" intended to
bring inspiration and comfort to all who hear it.
All the songs on "Coming Home" feature Mindy's expressive vocals and
her command of an array of instruments including violin, guitar,
piano, accordion, and harmonica. The tracks range from gospel
standards to adaptations of hymns to originals written by Mindy and
her co-lyricist and husband Jacob Brackman. Produced and orchestrated
the CD is flavored with musical influences from around
the world and features a host of guest artists.
Many of the songs on "Coming Home" set the mood for contemplation
while others compel you to move to their rhythm. "God is Love"
poignantly pays tribute to the song's simple but powerful title.
"Child of God" is a funky call and response treatment of a classic
gospel tune and showcases Mindy on harmonica. "My Father's World" is
a rare blend of African and Celtic musical images. In "Angel of the
Darkest Night", Mindy sings a duet with pop icon Carly Simon. "Peter
and John" is an up-tempo, jazz-influenced retelling of the healing of
the man at the gate in Jerusalem called "Beautiful." "Touch of the
Master's Hand" tells a delightful story that will touch listeners of
all ages and features Mindy on violin. And the CD closes with Mindy's
gentle rendition of "Amazing Grace."
A professional multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter, Mindy
toured as a "side-man" with the likes of Billy Joel, John Mellencamp,
Donald Fagen, Joe Jackson, and Carly Simon and headlined at legendary
folk clubs such as Club Passim in Harvard Square and The Bitter End in
Manhattan. Throughout her career, she composed and performed
devotional songs, both in and out of churches, using her music to
integrate the spiritual with the secular.
Shortly before "in His eyes" was released, Mindy told an interviewer
that it was becoming more and more natural for her to bring spiritual
insight to her music and to her communication with her audiences. "We
need to be spiritually provoked, stirred, and awakened, over and over
again," she said. It's our hope that "Coming Home" will, indeed,
fulfill that desire.
