Josh has excelled in just a few short years from bass to key bass and production. With his gritty, space bass, womp generating the backbone of the music. The two of them teamed with Jenni, whose song writing and powerful voice have produced a fresh new approach to electronic music. Leading to incredible stories of love and loss, all while pumping up the power of the female entity and reminding us all to strive for greatness. Her twin Amanda brings a softer, intense flow to each song, singing lead or harmonies, the blend is something that only siblings can achieve.

“Beautiful harmonies don’t do the sisters justice. It’s like hearing two shades of the same voice, seeing both sides of the same coin at the same time.” -Music Spectator
"If you love the soulful grit of Lauryn Hill and Sheryl Crow, you should catch them in their natural setting -- on stage" - Barbara Mitchell, Oregonion
[PORTLAND POP] "Portland twin sirens Amanda and Jenni Price, known together as Acoustic Minds, specialize in their own blend of soul and New Millennium dance pop. Their work has two completely different, though not necessarily opposing, sides: a quiet, acoustic side rife with gorgeous blues and soul influences and a loud, club-banging side that is rich in synths and lyrics about the type of love at first sight that can happen only on the dance floor. Citing such influences as Rihanna and Katy B, the band is crossing over more fully to the latter's side; its new album, Electric Sol, sports synthy club jams fit to get a little sauced and make out with a rando to." - Nora Eileen Jones, Willamette Week
