TDP Recommends: “Pocketful of Poetry” by Mindy Gledhill

Just in time for Poetry Out Loud, off of Mindy Gledhill’s fourth album comes the geeky, lovable song “Pocketful of Poetry” that speaks fondly of embracing creativity and dumping the boring, stable lifestyle that our society just enjoys promoting.  Described on her website as an “indie singer songwriter that will leave you floating like a scoop of vanilla ice cream in a strawberry soda,” Mindy Gledhill does not fail to make her fans feel warm and fuzzy inside.  The catchy lyrics of “Pocketful of Poetry,” such as “I draw doodles of eccentric faces in the margin spaces of important papers,” highlight a free-spirited outlook on life, emphasized even further by the violin instrumental.  The music video embraces whimsical Alice in Wonderland allusions, frilly skirts, and vintage typewriters to mimic this magical characteristic.  Mindy Gledhill is a perfect musician for an artsy soul and the fan of Ingrid Michaelson, Regina Spektor, and the movie Big Fish.  Dig it, Devils!
