Mandi Sagal has released the official video for her debut single "Smoke Your Weed." The song is all about that hot and cold love that we’ve all experienced— making the best of a bad situation when the person you’re interested in only calls you when they’re bored. Mandi adding, "This song is about what so many of us go through in the dating world. You are entertaining someone who is blowing up your socials and seems super interested, which leaves you feeling hopeful and excited. Then, when you are together in person, it falls flat and they become uninterested, which leaves you feeling confused and disappointed. So for this video, I wanted to visually portray the expectations we set in our mind of how we want certain situations to play out. I thought it would be really cool to do a split screen with two scenes happening simultaneously. One side is what we are fantasizing will happen, and the other the reality of what is actually happening."
Mandi, born and raised in Green Bay WI, began singing publicly at age 9. She was well known in her hometown as a singer and artist, seen performing everywhere from Green Bay Packers and Milwaukee Brewers games, to high school musicals, summer festivals, and charity benefit shows. Mandi moved to Nashville shortly after high school graduation, leaving her family and friends behind to pursue her dream of making music.
Through her years in Nashville, Mandi has worked full time to support herself while developing her artistry, sound, and her songwriting craft. Her voice contains a richness and maturity beyond her years, showcasing technical prowess as well an ability to imbue every word with raw emotion and purpose. While Mandi’s music is unique, one can hear influences such as Fleetwood Mac and Maren Morris woven into her musical tapestry, creating a blend of country, pop, and rock and roll that is entirely her own.
