“Cindy is the personification of what it takes to be a superstar. Her writing is insightful and poignant. Her stage presence is utterly unforgettable, and her musicianship is flawless. She also possesses that rarest of charisma that one cannot manufacture: she was born to perform.” – David Lawrence, Host and Executive Producer of NET MUSIC COUNTDOWN

Born and raised in Los Angeles, Cindy was trained at the acclaimed USC School of Drama but realized quickly that there was enough “drama” in real life and the best part she could play... was herself. So, she wrote what is now 7 cd’s (and added to numerous compilations and soundtracks) worth of her life, which she has performed all across the United States, Japan, Germany, Ireland, and islands as far as Barbados and Guantanamo Bay. Music has always been the key to her adventure, and she soaks up the stories of those she meets, the cultures, the geography, the spirit and the down and dirty details of the road she travels. As a seasoned writer and performer, she has tackled numerous subjects - not only the classic singer/songwriter confessional fare of dysfunctional relationships, marriage, and motherhood, but also her personal discovery and recovery from breast cancer, the perils of the entertainment business, classic literature, sexuality, spirituality, history and the human condition. There is no topic which is out of bounds - she tells The Truth.



“P-nut,” as she is affectionately known by her fans, has a voice that defies her petite stature. Classically trained, this coloratura soprano hits the high notes like an angel but also bellows with rich, velvety tones in the lower half of her over three octave range. She’s a storyteller, and her show benefits from the stories, humor and banter with the audience in between songs as it is does from the music and exceptional execution. Cindy Alexander CONNECTS, and her relationship with her fans has funded her recording projects and fueled her continued success as a touring indie musician.

She's won a multitude of awards including David Foster's/NBC Star Tomorrow, L.A. Music Awards Songwriter of the Year/ Independent Pop Album of the Year, All Access Magazine's Best Female Pop Vocalist, Just Plain Folks Song of the Year/Female Artist of the Year, L.A. Music Critic's Best Female CD ('12 & '14), and Comeback Artist ('14). Even with accolades and a "record deal" as a prize for winning a reality show, she's stayed independent on her own JamCat Records, which found the perfect partner in Blue Élan Records in ‘14.

Cindy has shared the stage with John Hiatt, Bacon Brothers, America, Suzanne Vega, Joan Osborn, Rick Springfield, Beth Hart, Everclear, The Bangles, Edwin McCain, Marc Cohn, Howard Jones, Gin Blossoms, Collective Soul, Lisa Loeb, etc. and has appeared on compilation cd's along side Sarah McLachlan (Chilled Sirens- Water Music Records), Aimee Mann (Eclectic Cafe - Water Music Records) and Norah Jones (Sunday Brunch - Treadstone Records). She has also appeared on soundtracks: Sugar & Spice (Trauma Records) and has been featured in films (Here on Earth, Smokers, Sugar & Spice, Dorm Daze II, People I've Slept With, My Trip Back to the Dark Side etc.) and TV (Party of 5, Chasing Farrah, So You Think You Can Dance, VH1/MTV).

Aside from being a singer/songwriter/ recording artist, Cindy Alexander is a wife, daughter, friend, mother of twins, breast cancer survivor, advocate and Ambassador to BreastCancer.org, animal rescuer, avid reader, hiker, cribbage competitor, baker of OCD chocolate chip cookies, volunteer, and guacamole lover.

When asked what drives her to be an artist, she answered:
"What compels me to share my creativity is what I call the 'life of song.' It's the journey from Inspiration, to a spark or current in my heart, to something that pours from my pen to paper, from my fingertips to my instrument, from within my body and out through voice...to the space between me and the listener and hopefully, into that listener's heart, where it takes on an additional meaning, if not an entirely different one than I had imagined... And then perhaps, it's shared with a random friend and the journey continues. That's the life of a song. Music is a connection, a healer, and it's magic."

The new EP, "An American Girl" (released October 9, 2015) ~ been getting some sweet reviews:

From AXS.com:
"Cindy Alexander has long been a formidable talent, but with her An American Girl EP (available October 9 via Blue Élan Records), her artistry has blossomed into works of staggering depth and striking beauty. The powerful EP features some of the best vocals of Cindy’s career. Robust, warm, rich, and vibrant, the remarkable spectrum of earthy tones coloring Alexander’s arresting performances resonate with the picturesque beauty of a Midwestern landscape."

From Guitar World/ Acoustic Nation :
"Being a natural storyteller, unafraid to tackle the most intimate subjects in song, Alexander makes connections with her audiences in an almost uncanny way. The hurt surrounding lost love is hauntingly apparent in her song “Monarch.”

From Riveting Riffs Magazine:
"An American Girl, which can stand on its merit as a quality collection of great songs, ... also serves as a prelude to an even bigger undertaking, a double album that is already in the works. The opening song “Play,” written by Cindy Alexander and Dave Darling is one of the best Rock songs Riveting Riffs Magazine has listened to in 2015."

Check out the official Lyric Video of PLAY as featured on Huffington Post

From Songwriter's Monthly :
"Cindy Alexander gets better and better with every release... and she started off at phenomenal!"

From Indie Voice:
"An American Girl, a five-track EP, is easily the best material Alexander has created to date."

And then this happened:
"PLAY" Was nominated for AAA Song of the Year by Hollywood Music in Media Awards (Winner to be announced on November 11, 2016)

Thank you all so much for the support - I hope to see you on the road so I can sing these songs for you in person!
XO
