“Mindy Jostyn was a mother, a wife, a musician, a masterful musician, a daughter, a sister and a sideman sister extraordinaire. Mindy had your back. Her voice was one which, well, we could say: An Angel wanted a voice and Mindy Jostyn appeared. Her tenderness on the piano, the sighing of her violin, how she could rock the entire block with her fiddle, and look out for her on the harmonica, boys. Whoa! Just ask Arlen Roth and any audience that got the chance to hear the two of them pitch into the battle of jazz when we’d perform songs like “Satellite Sky” and “Flying in The Face of Mr. Blue”. Mindy was a master at everything she played. Her squeeze box was the breath of every song she played on it. Her persona on stage was a ray of light, sometimes weeping and sometimes stamping it’s feet… God Love you Mindy. I am grateful for your embodiment of joy.” – Kate Taylor

Give Them Wings To Fly

Sung by Mindy Jostyn

Lyrics by Mindy Jostyn and Jacob Brackman

Music by Mindy Jostyn

Produced and Orchestrated by Peter Link

Mindy Jostyn grew up in San Jose, CA and Wellesley, MA. Already playing several instruments at age 11, she organized an all-girl ensemble called The Tigers. When boys came into the picture, she started writing about them and performing with them in a series of bands culminating with The Cyclone Rangers, a cover band that performed for a decade in and around New York City.

Mindy toured throughout the eastern United States wowing audiences with her soulful voice, distinctive melodies, witty and insightful lyrics, and her command of a host of different instruments including guitar, violin, harmonica, accordion, and piano. She headlined at legendary folk clubs such as the Bitter End in New York City, Club Passim in Cambridge, MA, and the Ironhorse in North Hampton, MA, and she performed at the Falcon Ridge, Winnipeg, and Long Island folk festivals.

At every stage of her career, Jostyn composed and performed devotional songs, both in and out of churches, using her music to integrate the spiritual with the secular.
