"Classically trained, world class blues fusion. Killer."
“ Mindy is wonderfully interactive, with a great sixth sense of the music and musicians and how to solo in her own voice in a way that is magically suitable to the moment on each tune. There is a timelessness to her playing that hearkens back to the psychedelic era when even jazz musicians were breathing new contemplative life into their music. Mindy is obviously at home in any ensemble and easily brings her magical touch and breezy tones to any style of music. She's an original and one of a kind.”
Jef Labes / Van Morrison
“Mindy is a wonderful artist, who is very caring & geniune in her work as a flutist.”
David & Linda LaFlamme / It's A Beautiful Day
“Mindy has a beautiful sound, great energy, and a soulful feel.”
“Mindy plays from the heart and infuses her music with feeling and soul.”
"Mindy is a soulful flutist. She has the ability to access a sweet spot that turns heads when she plays. She is gifted with a 'presence' in her music that few musicians have."
“Mindy Canter is an exceptional Flutist. She has great ears, and is sensitive to the artist and producer. “
Sista Monica Parker
"We have had the pleasure of working with Mindy both in the studio and on the stage, where she has brought incredibly fresh energy and excitement!"
Original, soulful, groove oriented, accessible.
Mindy played flute with Albert King at age 19.
At a young age, Mindy learned to read music before she could read words. She has been playing keys since age 4, and flute since age 9.
Although classically trained, Mindy's earliest creative influences were blues and jazz, and later, soul, funk, roots, rock n roll….and anything else she could wrap her flute or keyboards around.
Over the years, Mindy has performed with Albert King, Michael Bloomfield, Boz Scaggs, Nick Gravenites, It’s A Beautiful Day, Dan Hicks, Charlie Musslewhite, Harvey Mandel, Ray Obiedo, Roberta Donnay, and Grammy winner Terrance Simien, among many others.
Her blend of blues, jazz, funk, and soul is rhythmically infectious and has been widely acclaimed. It is really a treat to experience such a passionate, soulful performer as she mixes musical genres with grace and ease.
