"Yes, there are several relevant local (musicians) performing throughout the weekend such as Mina Keohane, the young woman who has created something in this city that no artist has in a long time: a buzz."
-Tom Farrell - Indy Men's Magazine

Bio

Singer/Keyboardist Mina Keohane comes from a culturally diverse family, which she has brought to the forefront of her own musical ideas. While stationed in Korea with the Air Force, her drummer father met her mother, a singer/guitarist in the all-girl Korean pop/rock band "Galaxy". The two would often collaborate, mixing the Korean pop with American rock influences, and later left the country for Spain and the United States.

After years of classical training on the piano and honing her vocal style with the prog-rock band "Fool’s Mistake", she attended the Berklee School of Music and studied Jazz Composition. She moved to Indy in 2003 and spent the next few years playing with her jazz group at Indy Jazz Fest, The Chatterbox and various art festivals. She was named one of Nuvo's "30 under 30" rising stars in Indianapolis and was featured on the cover of Intake magazine.

The Wondrous Flying Machine was formed from the desire to explore a different genre outside of jazz. Mina drew her inspiration from personal experiences, poems about man-eating lions, love gone wrong, love gone right, and of course, Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Mina's songs have been described as "Rickie Lee Jones-Joni Mitchell-Aimee Mann meets Charles Mingus"
