Posted by - 10:35 AM on 09/09/10
This week, our "Before They Were Stars" feature brings you into the past of current States and ex-Lydia vocalist Mindy White. Before lending her pipes to these two bands, she stumbled upon Garageband and made a few demos of her own. Head to the replies to hear "Distant Heart" and read the history behind it.

"So I think I did this song when I was 18. I didn't even pick up a guitar until I was 18, and soon after that, I discovered Garageband on my computer but had no clue how to use it. I'm one of those types who hates manuals and doesn't have that patience for someone to show me how to do something a lot of the times, haha. So basically this is one of the first demos I have ever done and, well, by the quality you could have guessed that without a doubt. So I'm supposed to explain what this song means but most musicians really don't want to reveal what their songs are about so I'm just going to make a story up. Just kidding. The lyrics are pretty obvious, but It's basically a love story about a guy and girl who are separated by distance. The girl is reminiscing of great times and how she will do anything that she has to, even build a boat to rescue him, to get him back. She's afraid he could fall into "dangerous waves" and she won't let that happen."

I love her cover of We Are Birds too. She's talented, and kind of got put in Leighton's shadow. I love Lydia to death, but I'm glad she's in States now.

I've enjoyed everything she's released, no exception here. For being a garageband demo, this doesn't sound bad at all. Best of luck to her.

I always think its weird when people talk about Leightons shadow, I find her to be a way superior singer. But then again I'm not a huge Lydia fan so I probably just dont get it

Yeah Leighton's got a really unique voice I think, and a lot of people are either obsessed with Lydia, or don't care for them. I know Mindy didn't really have a lot to do with writing or anything either, so I think its really cool she's going to be in the spotlight now.
