Gledhill spent most of her youth in Eureka, California. As a young teenager she lived in Spain and learned its language. She studied music at Brigham Young University. She now lives in Utah with her husband. Mindy’s music has developed a strong online audience amongst bloggers and YouTube channels.

Gledhill released her debut album The Sum of All Grace in the beginning of 2004 on Lumen Records. However, she soon dropped her label in pursuit of a more indie sound, citing her desire to not be contained by a single musical category. She is recognized for her albums Feather in the Wind (2007), Anchor (2010), and Pocketful of Poetry (2013).
She has performed alongside talented artists including Katie Herzig, Juno Award winner Meaghan Smith, and Meteor Choice Music Prize winner Julie Feeney.

Gledhill’s third album, Anchor, was produced and engineered by Juno-nominated producer/engineer Stuart Brawley (Emmy Rossum, Lenka, Jason Reeves). The album features LA based studio musicians including Jamie Wollam (current drummer of Tears for Fears), Joe Corcoran (Michael Jackson, The Dave Matthews Band), and Matt Mayhall (Lenka).
Anchor was self-released in the United States, although in early 2011 Gledhill signed with Korean label FarGo Music for release in the territory of Korea. The album featured several favorably received pop/folk rock tracks and led to Gledhill’s invitation to the Durango Songwriters Expo 2011. On April 3, 2011 single “Crazy Love” reached #1 on the Korean pop chart Bugs Music. The song also reached #7 on the South Korea (GAON) music chart. Seven other tracks also charted on the S. Korean charts. Track “Crazy Love” was featured in the Korean reality TV series We Got Married in May 2011.
