StrongWriter On the Radio: (Episode 61) “Cindy Alexander – Gracefully Living Through the Big C”

“Cindy Alexander – Gracefully Living Through the Big C”
featuring the song “Play”

This December is all about the big C, and that stands for Cindy!  I’m talking about indie singer-songwriter Cindy Alexander, who actually isn’t big at all, as she stands measuring five-foot-two and about 100 lbs.  Her petite frame is a contrast to her powerful voice and grand songwriting, which give an open display to Cindy’s big heart.  And just in case you happened to think of the word cancer when I said the big C, that was a reference to Cindy’s breast cancer diagnosis in 2013.  It’s also about the proverbial curve she hit head-on and over the wall, and the courage to continue to live her dreams, on her own terms.  You’ll understand when you hear this very special conversation I had with this wonderful award winning singer-songwriter, wife, mother, breast cancer thriver and so much more.  Please enjoy this part one of a three part series!   ~Dean

Featured Guest:   Cindy Alexander

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.

Cindy Alexander CONNECTS, and her relationship with her fans has funded her recording projects and fueled her continued success as a touring indie musician.
