"BMI Review"

"Mandi Perkins is undoubtedly one of the freshest, most prolific songwriters to hit the U.S. from our North American neighbor. Consistently delighting audiences with her enthusiastic performances, her take no prisoners attitude, and her contagious melodic rock. Mandi Perkins is set for fame." - BMI


"Live At Viper Room"

“The songs showcase Mandi Perkins’ fine voice and literate songwriting sense. Perkins lyrics were interesting and it is evident this beautiful Canadian has a unique world-view as the songs weren’t just about breaking up with boyfriends or relationship themed.”

“The band lets Perkins shine in the spotlight and lays down a solid foundation for her to sing over …[her] her voice is outstanding"
- Music Connection

Sony/BMG recording artist Mandi Perkins is an intensely passionate singer/songwriter who creates uncompromising melodic rock. Energetic and charismatic, she writes about her life and those around her in a musical form of empathy, which makes listeners think, care and question.

Born and raised in Toronto, Canada, Mandi began writing and performing when she was very young and her childhood included musical theatre, vocal competitions, and writing every chance she could. A week after graduating with a degree in Honors English from UC Berkeley, Mandi Perkins decided to move to Los Angeles in order to pursue a career in music while simultaneously attending Loyola Law School. She recently graduated, passed the California State Bar and completed her debut full length album, "bleeding the line ...," with help from some of the biggest names in the music industry.

Mandi had a creative vision, a story she wanted to tell, so she began the quest by asking her friends on here to help fund and support her debut album. Through their belief in her talent, Mandi was able to pre-sell thousands of records and acquire private donations for her album before she even began recording. What resulted from all the hard work and determination is the melodically dark and rich "bleeding the line..." which had a limited digital release (through De Novo Music Group & INgrooves) on August 14, 2007.

Mandi has already sold over 20,000 CD’s and digital downloads of her 2005 EP "Broken Window" and the lead single "Why" won numerous awards and received airplay across the country. With exceptional publishing opportunities in the works, Mandi has had songs featured on MTV's "The Real World", "The Hills" & "Laguna Beach." She has already licensed two songs from her debut album to "Girlfriends" on the CW. Mandi has toured the country and also recently performed on the influential 98.7fm Star Lounge.

On December 12, 2007, Mandi signed her first record deal... with Sony/BMG. She is back in the studio recording her major label debut album that will be released in August of 2008. Mandi couldn’t be more excited. "This album is sick. It’s absolutely amazing. I had so many experiences trying to get this album made. Each of the songs stem from my own personal experiences, the lives of the people closest to me and those I met along the way. I write songs from my stomach and will take an event that has happened to me immediately following its conclusion and I will stretch it out until it’s at the rawest form. Once I have the emotion explode on paper, I am much more at ease. Songwriting is cathartic for me. I think it’s great to passionately feel, but there is a point when you should make sure you have an outlet, especially when the excess baggage takes control of your life. Hopefully listening to my music will be cathartic for other people." Mandi's debut album is set for release in August 2008.
