Album Notes
Singer/songwriter/pianist Cheryl B. Engelhardt cannot remember a time when she wasn't playing the piano. She has been writing piano pieces since age 5, involved in vocal groups since high school, and formally studying music since her entry to Cornell University, where she received her degree.

Upon moving to the New York area, Cheryl immediately involved herself with the songwriter scene, playing her own material wherever she could, from open mics to headlining in Manhattan clubs. By playing keys in rock groups, Cheryl started to make enough connections to form her own band. Her bass,drums,guitar,keys quartet has also invited saxophone and string players to join their recordings and live performances. Every show is an explosion of innovations and unmistakable intellect, from music video screenings to emotionally charged classical renditions of original rock songs.

Cheryl continues to construct her own musical path drawn from her desire for overcoming challenges to write vividly real and emotional lyrics. Cheryl's storytelling embodies painful desire for success, satirical views of the opposite sex, and her personal experiences in love. Her lyrics are dramatically supported by her piano performances and the arrangements of her songs. Her self-produced, debut album, Shoes Off And Run, is a product of sheer determination that benchmarks how far she has come in the past few years and radiates incredible potential. "I don't really see a specific end to this whole music thing. It really is all about the process; collaborating with other musicians, determining the sound and message I'd like to exude while preserving my true style, figuring out what exactly that style is and how to communicate with it... these are all fantastic puzzles to me that make the album actually have value. I'm excited about this first round, and I'm looking forward to the second. And the third. . . and the fourth." The inside of Cheryl's debut album cover states: "There are two ways to look at a picture; from the outside and from the inside . . . Welcome to the inside." One good listen to Shoes Off And Run and you feel like you truly are on the inside.

Shoes Off And Run
i like it got cd on time

Tim N

Nice Lyrics, harmonies, arranging, bass playing.
Lyrics and nice vocals headline. Musicians play smooth and steady. Arranging rules. Styles vary subltly and seemlessly within a pop feel. Reggae to classical to eastern to folk to funk and more.

Len Caro

Wonderful, lilting tunes, and a tight back-up band
Heard one song on XPN radio out of Philly and immediately bought the entire CD. Nothing disappoints. Excellent tunes, insightful writing, complementary back-up band, and a freshness to everything that delights the soul. If you like up and coming singer-songwriters, stay tuned. This CD "soars".

d calabrese

wonderful variety, and production. A lot of depth
No two songs sound the same. A lone piano, a rock tune with strings, a reggae feel. Just a fantastic variety of music with creative and introspective lyrics. The video on the CD was fun to watch over and over. Great music for in your car while driving, or just sitting at home reading a book. Regardless of your musical taste; everyone will enjoy this CD.


catchy and well-composed!
This is one CD that won't dissapoint. The first song hits you with a punchy opening that really illustrates the piano work and draws you in. The lyrics are fun and the melodies catchy-you'll find yourself singing along in no time. There is a depth of emotion felt in most of the songs, although some, like American Diner, try to be more light-hearted. All in all, this is a CD I've had playing in my car's player continuously for two weeks straight and I've not grown tired of it yet!


unbelievably insightful from male and female perspectives
I gave the album with my own liner notes to my lover and we couldn't believe how powerfull the music and lyrics were.

Timothy J Fancher

Breath of fresh air!
I couldn't be happier with this CD. A friend suggested I give it a listen and it's just wonderful. Congratualtions Cheryl on a fantastic debut album.


Run out and buy this album.
This is a great album with an interesting mix of pop, rock and jazzy funk. Standout songs include "Proof", which has some great multi track harmonies and a melody that will stay with you. Not only does Cheryl compose the songs, she sings them beautifully. For Pop-Rock fans, "Shoes Off And Run" is a must-have.
