Mina sounds like: laid-back, slow-core, folky compositions; suffused in the '70s and '90s, drug-induced textures and states of darkside/vintage psychedelia. Brutally honest confessional songwriting; straight-ahead rock and roll; her knack for catchy melodies, witty lyrics, and extraordinary vocal range.
Mina has worked with industry veterans, such as producer Martyn Lenoble (Porno For Pyros, Scott Weiland, David Gahan The Cult), bassist and trumpet player, Flea (The Red Hot Chili Peppers), guitarist Craig Ross (Lenny Kravitz, Eric Clapton, Sheryl Crow), guitarist Gerry Leonard aka SpookyGhost (David Bowie band leader/guitarist, Susanne Vega, Duncan Sheik), pianist Zac Rae (Fiona Apple, Miley Cyrus, Annie Lennox), mixer Greg Fidelman (Rage Against The Machine, RHCP, Marilyn Manson, Johnny Cash, LoA, Adele), producer Andy Kravitz (Joan Osborne, Cypress Hill, Imogen Heap, The Police), Producer Jared Kotler (Keith Caputo, Marcy's Playground), Producer Steve Thompson (Aretha Franklin and George Michael, Korn, Filter, Ziggy Marley etc) Producers The Butcher Bros, (Urge Overkill, John Lennon, Bob Dylan, Amy Grant)
Mina/On the festival circuit/gigs: She has shared stages with titans like Coldplay, Nine Inch Nails, Björk, David Bowie, Pixies, and Foo Fighters. Caputo is unafraid to mine new musical territory, as evidenced by her two most recent releases – A Fondness for Hometown Scars and the latest, As Much Truth As One Can Bear.
