Cindy Nelson Cameron Park, CA, USA
LOOKING FOR LEAD GUITARIST & DRUMMER TO START BAND WITH PROFESSIONAL, ESTABLISHED SINGER/SONGWRITER.
Northern California-based singer, songwriter, and recording artist, Cindy Nelson,
has been busy honing her craft since the age of 9. With her unique Alternative-Rock style,
which intersects with a dash of country, the listener is taken on the ride of their life while
hanging onto every affecting word sung through her gripping two ½ octave vocals.
Cindy’s first locally recorded CD, ‘I CAN d’, featured such Sacramento-Area greats as
multi-Sammie Award winning rock guitarist, Steve “Beer Dawg” Wall, and renowned
folk-rock touring artist Dave Nachmanoff (who is Al Stewart’s opening act.) Soon after
the release of this album Cindy garnered a distribution contract with Tower Records. This
same CD caught the attention of a Nashville Music producer Neal James (a recipient of
an ‘Achievement Award’ for being the “Founder of Southern Rock” presented by
Georgia’s House of Representatives). After Mr. James heard Cindy’s soulful vocals and
skillful writing talents, he arranged to produce her next two albums in Nashville’s own
Master Studios, Creative Recording Studios (now, Blackbird) and Masterfonics on Music
Along with her success as a performer, Cindy’s songwriting capabilities extend to being
able to write songs on demand for TV, Film and other artists. When given a task to write
on a particular subject matter she has composed a tasteful song in a short amount of time
that is strong structurally and commercially. Several of the songs demonstrate her talents
as a songwriter. In the winter of 2006/2007, two of her songs, “In Your Eyes” and
“Running With Scissors”, hit the Top20 on the Adult Contemporary and Alternative
Top40 radio charts. “Running With Scissors” was recorded after she was approached to
write the song for the motion picture of the same title.
