ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"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 bya 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, The Reporter

"Award Winning Independent Artist, Cindy Alexander delivers another first rate album jam packed with should-be hits, candor, wit and a whole lot of heart. The only thing more crush inducing is to see her live." - Pop Genie

"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



It is rare that an artist, has so much to offer her audience: talent, beauty, charisma, songs that people can't help but sing along with, and lyrics they want to quote to their friends. Cindy has won a multitude of honors including:

*Winner of NBC's and David Foster's Star Tomorrow
*L.A. Music Awards Songwriter of the Year, Album of the Year, and Independent Pop Artist of the Year
*JPF Artist of the Year, Songwriter of the Year, and Pop Song of the Year
*All Access Magazine Best Female Vocalist
*Best of Local Licks - KLOS radio

Wobble With The World
This CD has been in my CD player since the day I got it. For such a hard-working artist who dedicates her time to making music for her fans, it shows. This is the absolute best CD and anyone that is a fan of Cindy and doesn't have it yet, you have got to get it!

William J Faulkner

I felt compelled to write this review:
A brief track-by-track review: 1) Normal - Chrissie Hynde should have been proud to write or perform this song. A strong fast horse right out of the starting gate. 2) Evil Peter - Catchy, quite a story. I'm sure glad I'm not Peter (though the attention from Cindy might even be worth it). 3) Bloom - Fragile, beautiful, lilting, incredibly pretty song. Sensual. Irresistible - you could not turn down her request. 4) So What - Great song, great beat, obviously lots of great lyrics. So what the h___ is this song about? 5) Unbelievable - Classic Cindy dysfunction, vicarious. A foot-tapper. Slow dance to it - if anyone still does that. Source of the album title. 6) Kamikaze - Worthy to be right up there with the greats from 40 years ago, I just can’t think what this song reminds me of. But it’s beautiful! 7) Hillhurst Ave - Another totally different unique Cindy. There is so much happening in this awesome song, it’s like watching a deep movie again & again and seeing a different level each time. 8) Simple Stupid Clear - Worth the price of the whole album (and much more) just for this anthem. Awesome power. 9) No One Is To Blame - A cover of Howard Jones’ song, and somehow the previous track just segues seamlessly into this one about the paradox that is life. Why can’t simple things be easy? Pure genius to include this song here. I guess now I need to learn who Howard is, and listen to more of his stuff. 10) This Is What You Get - More classic Cindy dysfunction, with its in-your-face attitude. Does she always write this stripped-bare honesty? (Well, duh.) 11) Soldier Song - A lullaby? Maybe more of a ballad. Obviously driven by Cindy’s AFE tours, and I’ll bet many GI’s and spouses play this song every night. Truly heartfelt.

Okay, so I love this album, and am delighted it represents more incredible Cindy to listen to and learn. From her debut CD “See Red” through “Smash“, “Angels & Demons“, and now “Wobble With the World”, she has remained true to great writing, great tunes, great performances, and most of all to herself. As other fans have said, any of her songs could be a single.

Her challenge (in my humble opinion) is to grow and blossom without losing her connection to this growing body of great work and the lofty expectations we fans have of her. That she achieves this ideal so consistently is a tribute to her creativity and versatility, and the diversity of the tracks she records. Part of me wants to keep her all to myself, while the other part wants to yell her name to everyone who might listen! Thank you Cindy!

Wobble with the World
This album is absolutely fabulous!! I thought I would never find another album that would top Cindy's "Smash" album -- but this one is so fantastic! The songs are addictive, her lyrics are meaningful, and the songs are full of spirit...all while still remaining catchy and just all around contagious.

I am so glad I got it! :-

On par with any major lable release
But the best thing is that she's indie ~ because underlying the radio friendly tunes and obvious skill and craft of the musicianship, production and songwriting, is honesty. This girl is at the top of her game on cd #4. The collaboration of Cindy Alexander and her producers/songwriting partners Dave Darling and Paul Trudeau is obviously a labor of love and we are the lucky ones to receive their gifts in beautifully captured performances. Like all of her previous cd's, Cindy's quirky humor and wit are evident throughout, but also her ability to draw tears out of a rock (Simple Stupid Clear & Soldier Song). Bloom is an artistic masterpiece and Unbelievable and Kamikaze are sure fire hits. Normal, Evil Peter, So What, Hillhurst Ave. and This is What You Get will satisfy those of us long time Cindy fans who thrive on her feisty use of music and language to poke pins into human frailty, especially our own. I think even Howard Jones might agree with me that her cover does the wonderful tune even more justice than the original. All that being said, the cd hasn't left my player.

Another fabulous collection of songs since Angels & Demons.
Cindy has produced another amazing, interesting collection of material/songs once again, with "Wobble with the World." Her latest disc continues in the tradition of her other three albums; See Red, Smash, and Angels & Demons and it's another dynamic album and a real gem. "Wobble" contains some ballads, pop songs, a few rockers and a beautiful, lovely bonus track titled "Soldier Song" with heartfelt interesting lyrics & beautiful vocals. But it's hard to categorize the material and say one song is considered pop or rock, etc, etc, etc. It also contains a beautiful cover of Howard Jones "No One is to Blame" (a classic from the 80's) I had almost forgotten what a truly great and classic song that is, until I heard Cindy's version of it and heard her sweet vocals added to this cover. "Unbelievable" is another cool song with quirky, interesting lyrics that contain the title "Wobble with the World" in it. Cindy is a multi-talented songwriter with the most gorgeous, unique and powerful vocals, and has written a collection of classic songs with incredibly interesting lyrics. Every one of these tracks could be played on any radio station ... and should be. This CD has been in my player nonstop since the day it was released and it's almost worn out. Every track is amazing with such interesting lyrics, and I've never skipped over one to get another. Besides "No One is To Blame" Cindy has written 10 other interesting, impressive, beautiful songs. This is another amazing album/cd that's already a classic... and just as her other three are powerful, highly listenable albums. I haven't bought many CD's this year, but it's one of the best CD's I've picked up. "Wobble with the World" is highly listenable.... and highly recommended!!

What Simon Cowell Would Call WoW Factor!
Seems to be a lot of up & coming Singer/Songwriters at the moment Kate Nash, Natasha Bedingfield maybe Lily Allen, well Cindy's arrived already this is a master class of her talents.If independent artist have a Grammy think a nomination would be in order.

Stu Craig

Another edgy, intelligent offering from Cindy Alexander
While it's not fair to paint Cindy Alexander with a broad, "Confessional Singer-Songwriter" brush, it provides a reasonable foundation to build this review upon. Cindy does fit (albeit loosely) within the genre, but she's much more than that. Her music is real and tactile. While her lyrics may provide some insights as to what makes her tick, the true power in Cindy's music is the ease with which she makes the listener question what makes them tick. With every record, Cindy finds a way (whether deliberate or accidental) to make me just a little uncomfortable. A passing moment of insecurity when I'm forced to look past the land of Pollyanna that I have grown so fond of living in.

But in spite of all this, or perhaps because if it, I am drawn to Cindy's music. "Wobble with the World" is Cindy's most polished studio effort, with a big sound and quality production value. It has yet to replace some of her earlier works as my favorite Cindy CD, but given time I suspect it just might. Like comfort food, it sticks with you long after taking it in.

Cindy Alexander is the real deal folks, and eventually the music-buying public is going to figure that out. In the mean time, do yourself a favor and discover her for yourself. She's one of music's best-kept secrets.
