“LIVE AT MISSISSIPPI STUDIOS”
FROM NORTHWEST SOUL-FOLK ROCKERS
PORTLAND, OREGON Acoustic Minds, the five-piece folk rock band fueled by twin sister harmonies and deft exploration of contemporary acoustic musical styles, have released their second CD, Live at Mississippi Studios. The CD is the follow-up to last year’s studio album “Time,” and has already made a splash on Garageband.com’s Folk Rock charts as well their Blues, R&B, and Jazz top picks. It’s rare to find a band versed in so many styles and able to bring something fresh to the mix, but this is exactly what sets Acoustic Minds apart from the crowd. They can burn up a stage with Indigo Girls-like power anthems (“24 Years”), acoustic jazz/blues picking and smoldering gospel-like testifying (“Stuck”), or sophisticated rhythms and adult contemporary singer-songwriting (“Then I’ll be Smiling”). The 13-track album is a perfect introduction to the raw power of their live shows, allowing listeners to enjoy their tight musicianship, soaring vocals and inventive style.
Acoustic Minds live album features Jenni and Amanda Price (vocals), Franklin Gallwas (percussion) and Nathan Carver (bass, sax, drums). Live at Mississippi Studios was recorded at Portland, Oregon’s renowned acoustic café Mississippi Studios by Jim Brunberg, and mastered by Ryan Foster. Featuring previous members of Acoustic Minds; Mel Cooper (vocals, electric guitar) and Nathan Milton (acoustic guitar, vocals).
Acoustic Minds began as a three-piece, with twins Jenni and Amanda Price sharing their love of singer-songwriters like Sarah McLachlan and Joni Mitchell with acoustic guitar. They found like-minded artists around the Portland area and eventually filled out their sound to a full band. Their first CD “Time” was released in 2005, and launched a national 59-city tour. They currently keep to a demanding local performance schedule including a busy summer of outdoor performances.
