Mandi Gage is a Columbus native and her interest in music started at a very young age. When she first heard Aretha Franklin’s voice that was the moment she knew that she wanted to be a singer. Her passion for music continued to grow and by middle school she started taking band classes, studied the tenor sax, and choir. It was in choir that Mandi first received recognition for her talents and was given her first solo. By high school Mandi was the lead singer of a nationally recognized jazz band where she fell in love with Ella Fitzgerald and found her passion for singing. This experience laid the groundwork for her musical path.

Throughout the years Mandi has continued to sing different genres of music, which has allowed her to fine-tune her voice and get accepted to a vocal program at The University of Western Michigan. While at Western Michigan She studied opera in addition to continuing her jazz education, her major was Vocal Performance with an emphasis on Vocal Jazz.
In 2006 Mandi joined The Conspiracy band, where her sound grew and so did her love for entertainment. No matter how my day has been, when I show up to sing, it’s all erased. I love to share my gift through music and enjoy being a part of the most important moments in people’s lives.
