Mimi Gilbert discovered her love for music and performance on the streets of Los Angeles, San Francisco and Seattle as a teenager. Now having spent the last two years touring consistently in the USA and Europe, she continues to carry her songs and story around the world, playing in venues of all kinds. In the realm of indie, cinematic folk, Mimi is harmony driven and with a love for deep rhythm. She creates layer upon layer of a raw, prevailing sound that simply burst with life, journey and experience.
Mimi Gilbert crafts a tender, robust meditation on universal themes of human existence: love, sorrow, loss, and faith are a few off the tip of the ‘daily iceberg.’ Stripped of pretense, palms postured outward, she offers honest and luminous chronicles of what it means to live the daily mysteries of our lives alongside the imperative to ‘love the daily fight.’ With such acuity to the human heart, her songs ask and answer questions harbored within both ‘saint’ and ‘sinner,’ punctuated with a gentle whisper of their likeness. Her writing is dense yet welcoming; her sound captivating yet calming—one feels bathed in poetry through each verse. -Reina Berumen | Stick Figures Review
