ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Biography
Born in 1961, Cyndi Boste is a veteran live performer of the Melbourne music scene.

As either solo/duo acoustic performer, or member of Steve Boyd's Preachers, Boste has sailed the high seas of 'unknown' artist for many a year, gathering experience from a vast variety of situations and musical styles.

Since the release of her self written debut album Home Truths in 1999, Cyndi has been acclaimed by music critics and music fans alike. She has been described among other things as... "The best thing to happen to Australian music in a long time" (Mike Daly, The Age, Melbourne).

Cyndi grew up in a semi-rural part of outer Melbourne, at the foothills of the Dandenong ranges, in Victoria, Australia. She was raised in a household that was 'music friendly' as she puts it, surrounded by the sounds of everything from the Beatles to Jim Reeves and Peggy Lee to Patsy Cline.

A love of melody, and a back beat, began very early in life. "I've always found it very easy to remember melody lines. Mum and I used to go shopping to buy our favorite singles every Friday afternoon. It was so exciting".

In her early teens she began listening to Janis Joplin, Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Lou Reed, Marc Bolan, David Bowie, Leonard Cohen, Carol King, Jackson Browne... etc. After a brief stint on the piano accordion (inspired by a gift from an Irish sailor that would occasionally visit the family home) ending with exhaustion from the effort it took to play an instrument half her own size, and fast approaching adolescence, she soon developed a passion for guitar. She bought her first sunburst electric guitar at Kmart for about $27... (a fortune in pocket money) and thus began the long journey from inspired young beginner, to accomplished singer/songwriter.

Years of live work in bars and cafes, unsustained periods of writing, a lack of direction, endless battles with alcohol and a whole lot of soul searching later, Boste has emerged not only as a survivor, but a talented and thought provoking contemporary artist. You get the distinct impression that her songs are well lived in.

Her newly released second album Push Comes to Shove is a delivery on the promise of Home Truths... again, she has not let us down.

Cyndi Boste is an independent artist that all Australians can be proud of, and one who will continue to fly the Australian music flag throughout the world with her unique musical style and songwriting prowess.

Scrambled Eggs


Cyndi Boste turns up the heat in the kitchen on her latest album.

It's Sunday morning, the bacon is crisping, coffee brewing, and the scrambled eggs are taking musical shape as Cyndi Boste and friends collaborate on an album celebrating some of Australia's finest songwriters.

"Singing your own songs can become very solitary, and there's a lot of great songwriters aournd me that I wanted to acknowldge" says Boste of the new album.

The album features songs by Viki Simpson (The Waifs), Dirty Lucy, Andy Cowan, Suzannah Espie (Git) Tiffany Eckhart and Barb Waters; and vocal and musical contributions by good friends including Linda and Vika Bull, Mia Dyson, Dave Steel, Garrett Costigan and Tonchi McIntosh.

Between enjoying the success of her last album Push Comes To Shove, and working on songs for her new album due for release early next year, this album allowed Boste to record a collection of her favourite songs, the result - a great new album, Scrambled Eggs.

Also featured on her CD are two live tracks from the Port Fairy Folk Festival, Roller and Holy Waters, from the acclaimed album Push Comes to Shove.

Media Reviews
"This highly impressive debut disc from Australian singer/songwriter Cyndi Boste evokes the soulful Americana sounds of Lucinda Williams. "These are songs that have traveled down the rough, bumpy roads of emotional landscapes. The stories aren't pretty - domestic violence, broken hearts, hard times - but the songs are strong, full of will, full of sound musicianship."
Vin Maskell, Rhythms Magazine

"Cyndi Boste is one of the best things to happen to Australian Music in a long while....Hometruths is an album that gives you goose bumps..."
Mike Daly, The Age (Green Guide)

"This country tinged debut album from local singer Boste should be one of the Australian albums of the year..."
Brian Wise, Australian Rider

"It's real country with guts and grace.
It's world class..."
David Dawson, Beat Magazine
