"By the standards set by vocalists who preceded her, this lady is truly sensational, and is well beyond the greatest of expectations.”

About the New Record
Cindy’s 2002 debut Major to Minor prompted Robert A. Lindquist (Singer Magazine) to write “This is an excellent collection of jazz favorites done remarkably well." On her new CD, Let the Devil Take Tomorrow, Cindy adds to her straight-ahead palette with colors drawn from the music of New Orleans (where she has lived since early 2005), her Southern roots, and the music she listened to in her youth. Scott worked closely with producer and guitarist Brian Seeger who deftly infused the recordings with his own personality. “A certain synergy comes out of good collaboration,” notes Cindy. “I have loved working with Brian, and I know the music of this project reflects that.”
Cindy Scott has walked a different path than the average jazz singer. She has a Masters in International Business and speaks German and Spanish. She lived and worked abroad for years in places like Hungary and Mexico. She and husband Bill Fernandez competed for a house on TBS’ reality TV series House Rules – and won! She moved to New Orleans just in time to lose everything to the flood waters of Hurricane Katrina. She earned her second Masters (in Jazz Studies) from the University of New Orleans, a program founded by famed educator Ellis Marsalis and now led by guitar icon Steve Masakowski. She traded a successful corporate career for the crazy life of a jazz musician – and she never looked back!
About Cindy’s singing, Karrin Allyson, four-time Grammy nominee, says “Beautiful pitch, great time (which I believe is almost everything)…you also sound so natural, great voice!”
