Biography

Cindy Lee Berryhill is a singer-songwriter born in LA’s Silverlake, and growing up in various parts of California. She was an early founder of the New York City Anti-folk movement along with Lach, Kirk Kelly, Beck and others. Her debut album, Who’s Gonna Save The World (Rhino/Capitol.) came out in October 1987 and was followed by the Lenny Kaye produced, Naked Movie Star (Rhino) in 1989.

It would be another 6 years before her third album Garage Orchestra (Cargo/Earth) would be released. Garage Orchestra was a tin-can-pop inflected departure from her earlier folkier albums and garnered a 4 star review in Rolling Stone. In 1995 her boyfriend and husband to be, rock-writer Paul Williams suffered a brain injury and Cindy Lee put off the making of her next album until 1996’s, Straight Outta Marysville.

In 1999 Cindy Lee’s novel, Memoirs of A Female Messiah was released along with a live album entitled Living Room 16. After the birth of her and Paul’s son in 2001 she began a song-cycle that included a song Beloved Stranger that was inspired by her experiences with her husband’s brain injury and the awareness that many soldiers were coming home from war with similar injuries. In 2008 the album Beloved Stranger (Populuxe) was released.
