Album Notes
About Cynthia: Singer/songwriter Cynthia Summers used to be a poet and you can tell. Her songs are full of what Sing Out! magazine describes as "intricate imagery" but they're never pretentious. Serious, funny, or bittersweet, Summers isn't posturing. She's just singing the truth. The Online Folk Festival notes that Summers "writes seemingly simple songs about domestic life that explore larger truths."

A deft guitarist, Summers also owns a wickedly beautiful voice. Her sound has been likened to some of the finest voices in acoustic music. Sing Out! says her voice is "reminiscent of a young Judy Collins." Summers's voice has also been compared to those of Natalie Merchant and Joan Baez.

Summers has gained solid recognition in the acoustic music world. Her awards include NJ Folk Festival New Folk Showcase winner (2004); SolarFest songwriting competition alternate finalist (2006); Yaddo fellowship; and Robert Frost Place fellowship. Her song, "Sort of Old Car," was featured on the June 16, 2007 broadcast of the NPR radio show, "Car Talk."

About the CD: "Love at Every Turn" was recorded at Signature Studios, in Pomfret, CT. Cynthia wrote all but of 1 of the 10 songs; the one cover is of a Greg Brown tune. The musicians include drummer Dave Mattacks, guitarist Duke Levine, bassist Richard Gates, keyboard player Michael Bellar, violinist Edita Blaskova, cellist Roman Placek, and violist Cori Tolda. Steve Santoro did the string arrangements. The record was mastered by Bob St. John at PDQ productions in Miramar, Florida. Moya McAllister took the photos and Roe Intrieri did the design.

REVIEW from Spring 2007 issue of Sing Out!: "The intricate imagery in Cynthia Summers songs reflects her past life as an award-winning poet. Her country-tinged melodies are lushly supported by top studio players, including Duke Levine and Dave Mattacks, as well as a string trio. But the star here is Cynthia’s crystalline but powerful soprano, eerily reminiscent of a young Judy Collins. A strong debut for this New Jersey native."

This is a hard CD to stop playing. The music is beautiful, Cynthia Summer's voice is clear and lovely and her lyrics really touch my soul. I am moved by this music and hope she keeps writing and writing and writing. We need her!

Cynthia Summers must be a beautiful person. She not only has a beautiful voice b
Cynthia Summers must be a beautiful person. Not only does she have a beautiful voice but deep beautiful sentiments.
She makes you feel what she is feeling, love, sadness, joy,
frustration, and an overwhelming caring about the human condition. I wish I knew her. I want to hear more about her
and hope she makes more music.

Connie Siegel

Beautiful voice, haunting, and deeply moving
This is a singer/songwriter I'd like to hear more. Her voice
is hauntinly lovely and had a deeply moving quality that
forces one to stop what they are doing and just listen and
pay attention. The lyrics are wonderful as well. I'm a fan

Jason Bennett

Love at Every Turn is a reminder that independent music is good for the soul. Lips sweet from cotton candy, blood as thick as brandy..........I'm gonna find you honey, sweep you off your feet. This is a gorgeous piece of work.

Rhoda Kahan

I heard Cynthia Summers at a venue where attendees tend to eat and talk and wher
This is a wonderful CD with a wide range of virtuosity from
funny, painful to loving. The voice is gorgeous and emotional. The lyrics are very meaningful, deep and literate. Cynthia Summers is very talented. I keep playing the CD and humming the songs when I am not playing it. I
think it is a superb CD and would call it breathtaking.

Paul Dodenhoff

In the world of contemporary folk music, where these days most female singer/songwriters sound like they can't find their way to the exit gate at the last "Lilith Fair" concert, Cynthia Summers cd, "Love At Every Turn," is a soul-moving, delightful first effort! (Nothing wrong with the "Lilith Fair" thing mind you!)
The vocal and writing influences of the likes of Joan Baez, Cheryl Wheeler(check out the title cut "Love At Every Turn," or "Crying Stopped,")Richard Thompson ("Words - Song for Keats,") and others are evident, but never overpower her own unique talent or musical sense of self ("Who Are You Looking For?", "I Don't Like The Fighting.")Haunting, sensual, and playful, Cynthia Summers vocals powerfully, but gently draw you into her world and invite you to find yourself in her words and music.
Accompanied by a talented group of musicians, her instrumental style is obvious on this beautfully crafted cd. There is no doubt in my mind that we'll be hearing more from this very talented singer/songwriter!
Don't pass this one up!
