StrongWriter On the Radio: (Episode 63) “Cindy Alexander – An American Girl’s Sweet Musical Journey”

“Cindy Alexander – An American Girl’s Sweet Musical Journey”
including the songs “Burdens and Bones (How Bad Do You Want It?)” and “American Girl”

Today is my final interview show of the year, and what a way to wrap up 2015!  All month long, it has been De-CIN-ber, in honor of my latest featured guest Cindy Alexander!  In this conclusion, we talk more about her songs and life, but Cindy also shared stories of her voyage through the music business and her success so far.  Parts of her musical journey are bittersweet, as she expresses in a song from her latest EP An American Girl.  The track is called “Burdens and Bones (How Bad Do You Want It?)”  It allowed Cindy to tell a story publicly about how she was led to a disappointing situation, one of which she was narrowly taken advantage by an entertainment mogul.  I appreciate that Cindy shared that story on the program.  The personal responsibility and grace that Cindy shows as she pushes on through her challenges is something that inspires me, and of course, I’m sharing it with you.  I really hope you enjoy my three part series featuring the wonderful singer/songwriter Cindy Alexander.  Here are the links to hear PART ONE and PART TWO, in case you missed them.  Blessings and best wishes!  ~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.
