Album Notes
Originally from the Chicago area, Cindy traveled to Oregon to study geology after she couldn't find any rocks above the ground in northern Illinois.
She finally found some rocks out west and received a BS in Geology at the University of Oregon. She worked for 8 years all over the western U.S. and Alaska in oil and gas exploration. During this time she taught herself guitar and a little mandolin in between looking at rock samples. She felt absolutely no inspiration to write songs while working on the oil rigs. She often wondered where that inspiration came from while listening to John Prine, Neil Young and Bonnie Raitt.

After bidding farewell to that career, Cindy became a Registered Nurse. This opened her portals of poetry and songwriting. Cindy's songwriting is inspired in part by the patients she cares for and writes about loss of independence, caregiving and transitions. She works as an ER nurse in an acute care hospital in Oregon's Willamette Valley. She is an American Heart Assn. Basic Life Support Instructor and a CCRN (certified critical care RN).

Cindy has lived for years in the Oregon Coast Range Mountains which also inspires lyrics as well as humorous and challenging aspects of everyday life.

Great Quality Music!
This CD is full of hearfelt songs sung by the composer who has a pure natural folk sound. The musicians are all top notch and the arrangements and over all mix are smooth and seamless. The songs are simply constructed and thought provoking. Very fine stuff!

WONDERFUL the first cd I play in the car
This CD has made my job as a nurse even more meaningful. Ila, Not Quite Ready have made me look at patients in a different manor. River of choices hit home with me reguarding my childhood. I can't pick just one song. They all hit home on different days. This CD touches every emotion. I have given this CD as gifts and always hear back how great it is. Way to go Cindy I am looking forward to the next onw.

Lots of personality, great musicians, great instruments!
This CD is loaded with unusual bring-a-smile lyrics and it's obvious that the musicians are having a wonderful time when producing it! Great clarity and quality. Looking forward to another from this artist.
