My Bio

Cindy explores the innate secret beauty within our human nature by looking, listening, learning....and creating an Artful Life.  A visionary songwriter and musician, she creates and performs live, original music, she refers to as DREAM FOLK, because Folks NEED to DREAM!  Expressing themes of self-awareness, compassion, mindfulness, and transformation, her unique, organic style infuses creative acoustic guitar harmonies, fluid grooves, inspired vocal melodies and poetic lyric imagery.  Truly a collaborative artist, she conceives and creates music, as a vehicle for healing, transformation, growth and social change, in a variety of settings, with a range of diverse audiences.   Each song is a magical journey, into the wonders of her world....where the heart and soul speak to the mind.
