Having spent two months in Austin Texas earlier this year performing at South By Southwest as well as recording and writing new music, YAZMINDI is one of Australia’s newest, exciting, underestimated and up and coming songwriters. YAZMINDI creates an authentic style through her diverse songwriting, with wacky youth songs about her mum running over her cat to love songs about chocolate, teenage love, life and society. This authenticity that YAZMINDI creates is unique. At 19 years young, hard working multi-instrumentalist and singer songwriter YAZMINDI has taken her music to festivals and venues around Australia and took time off school to perform abroad in Austin, Texas. You cannot define the one sound YAZMINDI provokes with her music, her experimental style fits in anywhere from indie alternative folk with a touch of harmonica and stomp box, to 90’s pop, rock, funk, soul and jazz. With comparisons to performers like Missy Higgins, Ed Sheeran and Kimbra; YAZMINDI is an eye catching show not to be missed.

Born in Cooktown, Tropical North Queensland, YAZMINDI has come a long way in her young age. She picked up her Mini Maton and recorded her first song at age 12. Then joined a country rock band at 13 years old whilst living in Gympie; releasing her debut EP in 2014. During her high school years YAZMINDI performed in various styles of bands. She spent most of her schooling life road tripping to festivals for gigs with her family, her main inspiration. YAZMINDI spent a lot of this time as both a presenter and also interviewing artists for her dad’s indie country online podcast, 'Country Underground'. She then moved to Sydney to further her career. YAZMINDI has performed at many diverse festivals both nationally and internationally, including twice at South by Southwest (SXSW Austin, TX), main stage at The Gympie Muster, Woodford Folk Festival, Tamworth Country Music Festival, Wallaby Creek Festival, Urban Country Music Festival and Black Mountain Unplugged.

Earlier this year, an Americana song YAZMINDI wrote with Texas singer songwriter, Robyn Ludwick, was fortunately picked up by major Nashville Artists Holly Williams (Hank Williams granddaughter) and Wade Bowen. 'Bars Ain’t Closing' is an acoustic Americana duet YAZMINDI and Robyn wrote whilst being in Texas together in 2015. There are three versions of the song from each artists individual genre, Robyn has recently released hers. YAZMINDI’s newest single '19' which she recorded in the USA, is currently in the midst of being released. YAZMINDI's purpose is to share her passion for music with the world and to influence youth around her to be fearless!
