Born and raised in Ontario Cindy had rural beginnings in a musical family. Both parents were piano teachers and Cindy and her sisters received lessons in violin, cello, and piano at a young age. At 13 Cindy bought herself a guitar and started to write songs. She picked up the bass along the way and was a founding member of the all-girl band Tin Angel (The IUDs) in Toronto who went on to be signed to Atlantic Records in New York with producer Jack Douglas. The self-titled album was released world-wide and received airplay all over the planet. Since then, Cindy has been making music from Miami to New York to southern Ontario on her own and with various bands. She has put out four independent CDs with The Baladins, Janes Street (Women at Work), and the Blue Rubies (Home Ground), and her first solo CD: Heart of this House. Her most recent solo CD is 'Gathering Tales'. Acoustic in format, Gathering Tales is a collection of songs Cindy has been working on for a few years, on her own and with David Campbell, Duane Rutter, and Amy Di Nino.
