MINDY SMITH - One Moment More (2004)
After appearing on the Dolly Parton tribute album "Just Because I'm A Woman,” many people wanted to know who Mindy Smith was. Fortunately, Mindy was signed to Vanguard Records with "One Moment More" being the result. Containing 11 self-written gems and a reprise of the song "Jolene" from the tribute album, "One Moment More" is poised to be one of 2004's best releases. Featuring a glorious voice that recalls the better parts of Lee Ann Womack, Alison Krauss and Patty Griffin, Mindy is truly original. As emotional as they are poetic, Mindy Smith's songs hook in the listener and will have them humming and singing along in short order. The rootsy sound of Mindy is hard to pigeonhole and for that she may not get much airplay on country radio but for those genres that do accept Mindy, (most likely the Americana and Adult Alternative formats) they will get to play great songs like "Come To Jesus," "Falling," the heart-wrenching "Raggedy Ann" and "Hard To Know." All of these songs could be great country songs if some of that genre's big stars were to get their paws on them. The two best songs on the album are the tough "Fighting For It All" and a song that is Taylor-made for Alison Krauss, "Train Song."
With 12 great songs, Mindy Smith's expertly produced "One Moment More" is the first exciting release of 2004. There have been many hyped and critical darlings throughout time, but Mindy Smith is one of the rare artists who exceed any expectations that have been laid out for her.
