With her artistic integrity intact, Cindy chose to sign with independent label Blue Elan in 2014 and released her sixth studio album, CURVE, and a Christmas album that year. AN AMERICAN GIRL was released in 2015, followed by 2016’s DEEP WATERS. Now, nearly two years later, Cindy Alexander releases the stripped down and tender NOWHERE TO HIDE, her most intimate album to date. The album’s warmth and beauty is matched by the enchanting melodies and heartfelt performances by Alexander.
According Cindy, “The idea of this record originated from Kirk Pasich, founder and President of Blue Élan Records. He wanted to capture the raw, emotional connection of my acoustic performances that he’d been watching on stage for many years. The focus was to be on the artist and the song, and not on production. NOWHERE TO HIDE became a concept – the record was recorded in single takes, where we played together in the same room. The only instruments involved were voices, a grand piano, acoustic guitars and dobro. Kirk set the stage, and allowed the musicians to do what they do best in an environment without restraints. We were seeking the beauty of imperfection, not a slick production.”
