An award-winning singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Cindy Novelos music is a mesmerizing fusion of Americana, classical and world music - soulful sounds that rise from the hollows of Appalachia, Europe, India and beyond. Her new CD Meditation pushes the boundaries of her innovative and luscious sound, resulting in a deeply moving musical experience that invites you to fall into grace.
Novelos authentic sound led Kansas Public Radio's Bob McWilliams to select her debut album Stone's Throw as one of his top picks for best folk albums of the year, along with albums by Sarah Jarosz, Richard Shindell and Cheryl Wheeler. Her arrangements...reverberate with the melodies and traditions of both Medieval and Romantic Europe. The smoky peat fires of the Celts mix with the disciplined heat of full-on symphony... The human condition bold and beautiful is what speaks to us through her music. ~Blue Sky Green Earth magazine
Cindys music is rich with wide open landscapes, deep inner musings and full-on passion.
