"When I first heard the sublime Mindy Sotiri sing about baby monitor static at an inner-city pub, I burst into tears and smudged all my eyeliner. Sure at the time I was a hormonal wreck because I, too, was up all night breastfeeding. But words can't express how amazing, re-assuring and downright subversive it was to witness my new maternal existence making an appearance at an actual live music gig. NO-ONE sings about this stuff. And they SHOULD. Because it's huge and it's important and it can make women crazy if they think they're the only ones going through it. Mindy is not just an outrageously talented musician - she's bringing women's intense private worlds into the public (or at least the pub-y) sphere. And that's as rock as it gets" (Emma Tom, 2010)

Mindy's third album 'Divorce Songs' is an unflinchingly honest exploration of a relationship set up against the monumentally un-rock backdrop of little babies, sleep deprivation, sore boobs and toddler snot. Mindy has been interested...some might say obsessed...with how the major themes of grand romance (including the odd disturbing splashes of infidelity and ambivalence) fit alongside the domestic love catastrophe of raising children

"....tender, stark and honest." (The Brag, July, 2010)

Mindy has been writing songs since she was a teenager, has recorded two albums over the last six years (both distributed through MGM) and has over a decade's worth of live experience including many sell out gigs at luminous Sydney venues.

A smarty pants academic and researcher in the non-musical part of her life, Mindy spent many years pretending that writing music was less important to her than pondering the ins and outs of the NSW prison system. Five years ago, after the birth of her first son, it became clear that in the approximately 2.4 minutes each day she had to herself, writing tunes was the only thing she wanted to do.

'Divorce Songs' is released through GREEN/MGM
