Mindy Gledhill - Pop ArtisT

Hive Riot was awarded “Best Album” in the Pop category at the 2016 Independent Music Awards.

Rooted in the Beehive State, but stretching to Manhattan, London, New Orleans and Nashville, Hive Riot is a synthy, dance-fueled party hosted by the electric alchemy that is Dustin Gledhill and Mindy Gledhill. Dustin was a classical prodigy piano virtuoso, performing with symphonies by the age of seven. Mindy is an eight-year multi-album indie-pop darling. The two of them together are the sound of letting go. And, in that letting go, you hear the sound of celebration, of liberation.
