More About Pivotal Awakening: “One song, just for fun.” That was the plan when two church friends, lead singer Mindi Odom and bass guitarist/keyboardist Andy Graves headed into the recording studio in September of 2019.
Their debut song, “Soulblind”, led to four 2020 Detroit Music Awards nominations and Mindi being voted as a Finalist in the Outstanding Christian Vocalist category. Inspired by a suggestion from their producer to write together, the duo embarked on a songwriting explosion. The Contemporary Christian pop/rock band Pivotal Awakening was born.
Their fourth song, “Awaken and Rise”, was just released, and the duo have written 14 songs together so far. With a steadily growing international audience and followers on their social media, Mindi and Andy can’t wait to see what God and music has planned next!
