ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Cindy, as a teenager, started out playing folk and bluegrass music in the northern most reaches of Appalachia .... the hills of southwestern Pennsylvania. Branching out as a musician, and called by her youth and the times, she eventually grew away from her roots and played rhythm and blues and rock 'n roll music for many years professionally. Her first Pittsburgh band, The Flashcats, really got Cindy motivated as a songwriter with over 50 of her songs in their discography ... some even reviewed by Billboard magazine. At that time, she was named as one of Pittsburgh's best songwriters in "In Pittsburgh" magazine. Her original song "Appetite For Love" was voted one of Pittsburgh's top 10 original songs by a local artist.

After several years with the Flashcats recording and touring from NYC to LA, and reviving the career of R&B legend Bull Moose Jackson, Cindy moved to NYC in her late 20's and recorded and played with many notable musicians ... including Keith Diamond (Billy Ocean, Donna Summer, Michael Bolton, Mick Jagger) and Doug Stegmeyer (Billy Joel, Hall & Oates) ... all the while perfecting her song writing abilities and stretching her vocal talent to new heights.

Eventually the music of her origins beckoned her back and Cindy temporarily set down the guitar to learn mandolin. Cindy has been performing regularly in the tri-state area of New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware for several years now. She is a favorite at Wilmington DE's "Winterfest" and "Wind Gap Bluegrass Festival" in Wind Gap, PA as well as the bluegrass concert venue, Albert Music Hall in Waretown, NJ and BOTMA (Bluegrass and Old Time Music Association) in Little Silver, NJ. She has also played some of the most beautiful and historical theaters in PA and NJ ... and in doing so, has opened for such national acts as the Boxcars and The Seldom Scene. In 2013 Cindy was nominated in three categories with the New Jersey Acoustic Music (JAM) Awards ... and won Top Bluegrass/Country Act.

Cindy released her first bluegrass CD "The Road", in 2012 (available on CDBaby). It showcased her song writing talents which have been acclaimed in Bluegrass Unlimited magazine (June 2014) as a "new and different song writing voice". She was specifically applauded on her story-songs as being "a strength of hers". Her vocal style is powerful and soulful and Bluegrass Unlimited calls her a "forceful and confident singer". Her mandolin playing gets kudos too in her original instrumental composition "Humphrey's Wheel", as "solid if not spectacular"!

From that CD, Cindy decided to make a video of her single release from "The Road", "444 Chicken Bone Road". It turned out to be one of the best decisions she ever made. In 2014, the video was picked up by Aristo Media out of Nashville and distributed worldwide. In April of 2015, it went to #1 on the YALLWIRE National Video Bluegrass Chart (bumping Willie Nelson out of #1)! It has aired regularly on the Family Channel's "Cheyenne Country TV" and Heartland TV's "Bluegrass Ridge" video programs ... the latter of which, Cindy has guest hosted several shows, airing worldwide ... as far away as New Zealand.

Now fast forward to 2015! Cindy's June release "Jail Break", produced by Grammy winning musician Jim VanCleve, features an all-star cast of bluegrass greats including Sam Bush, Aaron Ramsey, Bryan Sutton, Seth Taylor, Rob Ickes, Scott Vestal, Todd Phillips and Jim of course on fiddle. Not to mention the "Queen of Bluegrass" herself, Rhonda Vincent as a guest vocalist! Cindy penned 10 of the 12 songs on the CD with one co-write.

Live, Cindy delivers a captivating performance with memorable songs and vocals you'll be talking about.
