Cindy was born in Johannesburg, South Africa. Her mother was a piano teacher and her father played several instruments so there was always music in the house. Cindy sang and played guitar ever since she was old enough to hold one, also studying Drama until she finished High School, when music became her sole focus. She broke into the local touring circuit, working with different bands and then joined an all-girl band, "Clout" as vocalist and rhythm guitarist. "Clout" spent most of the '80s in Europe, UK and Africa, selling over 10 million albums worldwide, and topping the charts with #1 hits for 5 years. After "Clout," Cindy sang for "Zia," an African-Rock band, who toured France after releasing their acclaimed "Woza Moya" album. "Zia" then opened for the Bee Gees at 'Bercy' in Paris, 1989. Cindy wrote three #1 hits for "Zia" before moving to Los Angeles to pursue her songwriting.
Cindy now hosts an Acoustic Soiree on Sunday nights at Molly Malone's, where she features other singer/songwriters and plays with her acoustic band. She has just released her first solo CD titled "Silver Moon," produced by Ken Moore, and featuring some of the most talented musicians she has ever worked with. Cindy is also a published poet, and has had an honorable mention in the John Lennon Songwriting Competition.
