Mindy Smith performs live in Philadelphia.

The music of singer-songwriter Mindy Smith appeals to a wide audience while remaining close to her distinct vision. With a ringing endorsement from Dolly Parton — thanks in part to her rendition of Parton's "Jolene" — Smith has built a career on her own terms, without music-industry interference. She performed live from WXPN and World Cafe Live in Philadelphia on Sept. 22.

Smith's talent was rewarded early in her career, as she managed to book performances on national television well before her first album was released. Her debut, the modern but authentic-sounding One Moment More, capitalized on the buzz those appearances generated. The excellent new Long Island Shores, which continues to build on recurring themes of love and spirituality, comes out in October.
