Cindy Scott

“Vocalist Cindy Scott is a rare breed of artist- comfortably covering a variety of music, undaunted by genre barriers and walls that scare lesser singers into pursuing a singular line of musical thought.” Dan Bilawski, AllAboutJazz.com

About the New Record

Cindy’s 2002 debut Major to Minor prompted Robert A. Lindquist (Singer Magazine) to write “This is an excellent collection of jazz favorites done remarkably well.” On her new CD, Let the Devil Take Tomorrow, Cindy adds to her straight-ahead palette with colors drawn from the music of New Orleans (where she has lived since early 2005), her Southern roots, and the music she listened to in her youth. According to HoustonMusicReviews.com, “There really isn’t a bad or average tune on this album. Cindy’s great voice, the flawless production and an amazing band makes this CD a must for any jazz connoisseur. Without a doubt a 5/5.”

Short Bio

Cindy Scott has walked a different path than the average jazz singer. She has a Masters in International Business and speaks German and Spanish. She lived and worked abroad for years in places like Hungary and Mexico. She and husband Bill Fernandez competed for a house on TBS’ reality TV series House Rules – and won! She moved to New Orleans just in time to lose everything to the flood waters of Hurricane Katrina. She earned her second Masters (in Jazz Studies) from the University of New Orleans, a program founded by famed educator Ellis Marsalis and now led by guitar icon Steve Masakowski. She traded a successful corporate career for the crazy life of a jazz musician – and she never looked back!
