"Survivor Cindy Alexander Taking the Curve at Full Speed"

“In 2013, Alexander was diagnosed with breast cancer and had a double mastectomy. The artist paid particular attention to everything she experienced over the course of that year and she compiled it into an audio scrapbook of sorts that eloquently captures and poignantly expresses her inspiring journey. However, being the vibrant individual she is, Curve is by no means a pensive trudge along a somber trail, it is an exuberant dance celebrating those moments that define us. It is a blazing tribute to life and the courage it takes to truly be alive. By fearlessly exploring such intriguingly honest territory, Cindy has branded Curve her most compelling work to date.” Click link to read more -

"Mesmerized by her Musicality"

“Within moments of hearing the artist Cindy Alexander I was enticed. I was mesmerized by her musicality from the push of the play button. Throughout the course of her music Cindy controls the listener’s mood with her dynamic course of each song. She does not set you on a single set trajectory within a single song but varies her chord, melody and pace to create fitting and memorable songs within themselves. For example: Cindy can set her audience up for for n acoustic ballad with the introduction and verse, which changes into a Pop/Rock bridge, moving into a country chorus and a soul based middle 8. Although it seems on paper as if her formula of song writing is of a regular method with a simple changing of genre… the fact is that if you actually break-down her tracks and play each part on its own, it becomes a unique and memorable song to itself. She is a songsmith with an “I’m gonna go it my way” rock chick attitude. Sometimes you need to be in a certain mood for some artists, but if you give Cindy Alexander four bars of her her voice and wordplay she will put you in any mood she desires through her methods of writing and performance.” - Revolution 360 ~ People that Matter

"Cindy Alexander & The Bacon Brothers - Perfect Together"

n 1928, when H. B. Reese took some chocolate and added a little peanut butter — two components that were already exceptional on their own — he created modern day alchemy. The Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup has a savory flavor that exceeds the sum of its parts. Consequently, the same wizardry happens whenever Cindy Alexander performs with The Bacon Brothers. On a recent tour stop at the Sellersville Theater in Sellersville, Pennsylvania, the blend of the two phenomenal acts created an exquisite evening of pure musical magic.

Alexander, who has been opening for the boys for 16 years, took the stage as a solo artist. Her relaxed candor and easygoing charm allowed her to form an instant bond with the sold-out crowd. The stunning and stylish artist sat behind her Kurzweil in her sleeveless Pink Floyd t-shirt and a jacket offered to her by Kevin Bacon. She proceeded to set the venue on fire with a blazing set of captivating originals. Cindy’s vocals resonated throughout the theater with an invigorating robust warmth that electrified the room, amping up the mood of the crowd to prepare them for the six-piece headliner. -

"Wobble with the World - Review"

Cindy Alexander – Wobble with the World. Cindy Alexander’s (4th) album may be the one to launch this California native into the national spotlight. While racking up a number of accolades, including the L.A. Music Award for Indie Pop Artist of The Year and winning David Foster’s Start Tomorrow web based initiative on NBC, Cindy Alexander has been steadily building a legion of followers by touring with such notables as Suzanne Vega, Joan Osborne, America, the Bacon Brothers, Joe Bonamassa and the Gin Blossoms as well as a 15-show stint in the Pacific Rim, entertaining our armed forces.
The 11 songs weave an infectious theme of relationship challenges, and deserve a wobble or two on your CD or MP3 player. The haunting melodies, superior musicianship and searing vocals will have you adding Wobble to your favorites, especially if you are a fan of hook-laden Top 40 tunes. - Howard B. Leibowitz - Elmore Magazine

"Cindy Alexander - Girls Rock!"

Re: Every Rise and Fall: “…touching tunes of love, life and family in a colorful coming of age piece. The careful listener can readily understand why Alexander says: ‘I write songs and sing to stay relatively sane.’ Check out Cindy Alexander’s Rise and Fall. You too might just find its Wonderful...Critic's Choice” - Phoenix - The Examiner May 2012

"Beautiful Honesty"

You may recognize Cindy Alexander. As the winner of NBC’s/David Foster’s STAR TOMORROW that took place this past November, Cindy’s unmatched talent and sincere sound blew away the competition. However, Cindy was not interested in taking home any prizes. You see, Cindy Alexander has never made music to become famous, rich or powerful. She’s made music because it was what she was born to do. And her fans agree – it is thanks to their generosity and support with donations to the production fund that her fourth album, “Wobble With the World,” is due out this September. Cindy (or Pnut as some have come to know her), has always had a mind for music – it’s in her blood afterall. One of her earliest music teachers was her grandmother. But it was her realization that the closest, most personal thoughts bouncing around in her head were actually songs, that made it clear that she belonged on stage performing for music lovers around the world. And “Wobble With the World” is a testament to that beautiful honesty. The album features a harder edge than earlier releases, providing lyrical identity and a personality stamp, that tells audiences Cindy Alexander is not afraid of telling it like it is.

If you ever have the opportunity to see Cindy live, please take advantage of it. Chances are you’ll end up chatting with the artist herself. But be sure not to drink too much beforehand. Her writing partner, Pauly, will tell you, “be careful what you say to her because your life may end up in a song.” - Pen's Eye View 2007

"Old School Wisdom, New School Diva"

Cindy Alexander uses old-school wisdom, such as “To thine own self be true,” to guide herself through the bends and twists of her independent, singer-songwriter career.” Cynics who meet her, hearing that she has just released her fourth album, “Wobble with the World” on her own JamCat Records label, might surmise, “Oh, you’re not good enough to be signed by a major label. And the cynics would be wrong…For Alexander clearly boasts the confident voice and musicianship on guitar and piano and, not least, savvy ways with lyrics. Based on just a few songs alone…Alexander can assuredly take her place among today’s thoughtful, folk-rock divas atop the Billboard charts and others in the nooks and crannies of the U.S. pop music scene. – Richard Bammer - Vacavile Reporter 2007


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.

"An Absolute Delight To Watch"

An absolute delight to watch...Cindy Alexander doles out catchy adult album alternative that's more beer than foam, doses of musical friendly unit shifters with one foot in probity and the other in the Top 40. - Music Connection

"Melodic Masterpieces"

" I've already raved about the LA Music Award winner's debut album See Red and thankfully, the follow-up is even better. "I'm So Sad (That You're Happy)" and "Jamie" are two of the best modern pop-rock songs you will hear in 2003 (or even 2004 for that matter) and, like the excellent "Born Again Virgin", come complete with some of Alexander's trademark wry lyrics. In fact, she manages to cover the whole emotional spectrum in this collection of melodic masterpieces, from insecurity ("Idiot Child"), loneliness ("Tour Song") to heartfelt love ("Only Love"), and the whole album is packed with contemporary-sounding pop which should appeal to the disaffected Bridget Jones generation of women and men alike. Guests and producers who recognize Alexander's validity and outstanding musical aptitude on Smash include David Darling, Dennis Matkosky, Gary Harrison and Evan Frankfort, and they are excellent judges of one of the best independent artists to emerge in recent years." - Pop Matters

"Ahead of the Game"

This LA singer/songwriter has been turning heads and wowing audiences in places as far afield as Germany since her debut release See Red, and with this, her third release on her own record label, I’m slightly bemused to note that she is still an indie artist. But Alexander knows all too well she doesn’t need the politics, empty promises and recoupable advances of the major label world to succeed, as Angels and Demons demonstrates.

I was certain “I’m So Sad That You’re Happy” from Alexander’s previous album, Smash, would catapult her to success, but she has delivered another song that could just do that this time around. “Immortal” began life as an acoustic ballad, but has been energized into a terrific rocker with an irrepressible melody. It’s a hit waiting to happen. The rest of Angels And Demons is not overshadowed by “Immortal,” though, and the delicate ballad “Softer,” the uptempo “Unavailable Billy” and brilliant closing track “Grace” are all highlights. The poignant “Four Hours” is another example of Alexander’s knack for lyrics and a memorable melody, while the rocking “Better When I’m Broken” takes an interesting twist with a jazzy mid-section.

Angels and Demons is slick, professional and ahead of the game. Whether or not a major deal comes her way, she is living proof that success in the music industry can be achieved on her own terms.

"Multi-Layered Chameleon"

Cindy Alexander - Angels and Demons (JamCat) Both brash and bashful, bewitching and boppy, talented L.A. singer-songwriter Cindy Alexander goes from soft-spoken to swinging to make, “Angels,” a brave, multi-layered chameleon that is almost embarrassingly naked in its open, complicated emotions. From sensitive, soulful artist to full-throttled diva, Cindy moves with a deft and diverting touch that soothes and surprises

Cindy Alexander writes songs that people sing along with and lyrics they quote to their friends.  Born and raised in Los Angeles, Cindy was trained at the acclaimed USC School of Drama but realized quickly that the best part she could play was herself...and 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 affectionate 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 partnered with Blue Élan 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, animal rescuer, avid reader, hiker, cribbage competitor, baker of OCD chocolate chip cookies, volunteer, and guacamole lover.

“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.”
