“Alexander’s ten-song book “Messy” is one of her more edgy, yet it’s artfully sequenced with a variety of styles that shows off her gorgeous vocal abilities. The songs reflect many sides of her personality, from cheeky observer to deeply introspective philosopher. And the song forms and production artistry elevate the music to a very high level.”
– Beth Peerless, Monterey Herald.
“If something is different about Cindy Alexander, it’s not the power of her lyrics. The singer-songwriter, who has held on to the edgy credibility of an emerging artist through 10 previous albums, has crafted something anthemic, infused with pop yet true to herself.
The sound may represent a departure, but Alexander’s lyrics remain defiant, honest, bitter and sweet, with jabs of humor that compel listeners to hone in on her words and know the something that is presented.”
-Dave Faries, Monterey Weekly
My new hometown is embracing the record, and our local radio station KSQD is spinning multiple tracks, including “Messy,” “Candlelight” and “House without Windows.”
I LOVED making this record for you, and can’t wait to hear what songs resonate with YOU, personally. Please send me an email!
I’ve been so busy parenting, touring and trying to keep up on my social media that I was way over-due for checking in here on my own website! I have said to myself many times over the summer that it would be so much easier JUST to sing and write songs. But, this is the life of an indie artist: we have to run a business, dot the i’s and cross the t’s, make travel reservations, find the lost guitar pics, and do all of the things that are NOT creative so that we can BE creative. All this keeps me grounded, humble and overwhelmed. I am truly grateful to the team at KZZ Music and Blue Elan Records, my manager Dave and the outside consultants who keep nudging me back on track when I venture off the path. I am so blessed to be able to make music. This week I am 10 YEARS cancer free!
I’m adding new tour dates often, so make sure to follow me on Bands in Town or Songkick (or check in here) for the latest tour schedule. I’m excited to announce that I’ll be back with my dear friends, The Bacon Brothers for dates in Texas, PA, and VA in the Fall, with my own headlining dates sprinkled in between. I continue to book house concerts across the US, so reach out if you’re interested!
Although I felt like I walked into Disney’s Frozen movie (and Elsa must have been MAD), I melted 🙂 As always, I am so amazed and humbled by the incredible souls I meet on the road, as well as the profound connections created by music. Thank you to everyone who hosted the house concerts, came to the shows and supported me along the way.
Because I was too afraid to drive to and from Ira Siegel’s rehearsal space in the “worst snow storm in 5 years,” I paid $83 to an Uber driver….but Mr. Uber Driver had just seen Beth Hart the night before in NYC, and reassured me that I was opening for one of my generation’s Masters. Indeed – Beth rocks! She performs with such rawness and abandon that I can’t imagine anyone walked out of the Birchmere untouched by her honesty and passion. Here’s a fun picture of us. I never got the selfie, but I got a picture of the selfie.
After two great nights with Beth at The Birchmere, Ira Siegel (an amazing guitar player, borrowed from the Bacon Bros. and the orchestra of “Beautiful” and “Kinky Boots” on Broadway) and I met up with the talented and endearing Paul Guzzone (wonderful singer/songwriter in his own right, also the bass player in the Bacon Bros. band) for Part 1 of the Home Invasion Tour. This is where the adventure becomes most exciting ’cause we never really know what each “venue” (Living Room/ Breakfast Room/Club House/ Whatever) has in store for us! We couldn’t have gotten luckier in the draw. Our trio, together with my Godbrother/Tour Manager/Magician Michael, zigzagged across PA where we did a house concert to benefit BreastCancer.org, on to WV, back to PA and then on to VA. Each home was filled with the warmest, open hearts and delicious home cooked meals. Thank you to BreastCancer.org, Howard & Missy, Arlene, Maggie and Veronika & Jeff – they were phenomenal hosts. We filled the rooms with music, stories, laughter and yeah, a few tears (but in a good way), and hopefully we left smiles and the spirit of the songs behind, where they will continue to take on a life of their own. If you are interested in hosting a house concert, don’t hesitate to email me. I will be extending the Home Invasion Tour throughout the rest of the year – hitting as many States as I can!
