Fine Wine Woman
Spunky, Sensuous, Smooth. Great emotional depth! Get ready for a Heart Swell! If you like the smooth jazz flavors of Sade, the sensuous refrains of Jill Scott, and the 'I got an attitude' style of Tina Turner, you'll like this music. Old school magic is in here in this album of 16 original cuts. Written in the traditional tried and true obvious verse/chorus format, the songs are fresh and spontaneous, a surprise around every corner. There's a ton of see through imagery in the verses, building toward big fat choruses that haunt your memory long after the music stops. The strong, intense kick of the rhythms makes you want to get up and put a shine on the dance floor, or at least sway to ancient melodies buried deep in your soul. Talk about honesty of expression! This is a no holes barred, look out, I'm coming your way album. The music says what it means and means what it says. In 'Fine Wine Woman' Cynthia says she made fear get out of her space. You can't help but believe her. She tells us in 'Honky Tonk Lady' that it's ok for a lady to have honky tonk in her soul. You believe that, too. When these 'no beating around the bush' lyrics grab you, you might just go out and get a life change. From 'Go Away Springtime,' the beautiful ballad of lost love, to 'Song of the Elders,' the powerful work of hope and inspiration, you feel the intimacy of an artist connecting with you on the deepest and most realistic levels. Fine Wine Woman is more than an album of songs. It is a life changing experience, one that can be savored and enjoyed for years to come. '...vocal performance is very good... sophisticated playing...no doubt your live gigs are very successful.'
