Redacted Passages guest vocalist, Cindy McElroy, brings veteran soul/pop chops and a deep-hearted muse to every song she writes and covers, coupling the voice of a surging river to strong cross-currents of pulsing guitar work and a keen ear for supporting musicians.
Cindy McElroy grew her musical roots on Drummond Island in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.The Singer/ Songwriter draws from her life experiences and travels around the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Europe. Inspired by icons James Taylor, Carol King, The Beatles, Elvis Costello, and Eva Cassidy her music takes on an acoustic flavor. With the recent additions of Guiseppe Stella as Producer and Drummer, and with Michael Mleczko on keys, the current project, "Word Might Get Around", has flourished. Cindy feels they hear her music the same as she does and the sound is fantastic.
The loss of her grandmother in 1987 and her mother in 2006 to Alzheimer's Disease turned her musical focus to the disease. "The Queen of Norway" was co-written by friend and author, Rich Hill (A Deckhands Tale). A portion of the proceeds garnered from "The Queen of Norway"will go to the Alzheimer's Association.
More recently, she studied Jazz Singing under renowned jazz vocalist, Sunny Wilkinson -- with telling results on the Redacted Passages ballad, Tailored To Undress.
...or was that because she's also a newly minted fashion designer?
In 2017 Cindy released her EP, Word Might Get Around and it's s available for download purchase everywhere, such as on ITunes, Amazon, CD Baby Music. Be sure to pick up a copy -- and enjoy a little taste of her Release Party here:
