NEW ALBUM "WALKIN' THROUGH THIS WORLD" ---RELEASE NOW SLATED FOR AUGUST 21!
The first single is "The Gender Line", the track and the video to be released within a few weeks.
We finally made it to Nashville. Moving in the middle of a pandemic is not the easiest thing in the world. After spending a lazy month in Taos, NM after our closing, unwinding from a whirlwind year of travel and activity-- and packing up (getting rid of stuff) in Santa Fe, we moved into a rental house in our beloved East Nashville a month ago. We are now finally under contract with a cute, perfect house here, closing on August 5. We are so excited!
Even though we can't socialize with all of our friends here yet because of COVID19, we still feel the creative energy and the deep binds we've built over the years here. It's good.
And yes! It's time to get my new music out there! For my non-digital friends, I'll be pressing up physical copies in a digipak (not promotional sleeves). They will be available, I hope, in early July.
If you would like to pre-order the CD, please do! Just scroll down to the DONATE button on my home page, pay $20 and MAKE A NOTE that it's for WTTW. I'll mail it out as soon as they are pressed.
Btw, all my other CDs are now available in Cid's Music Store, along with individual tracks from each. I'm working on adding my early career tracks as well.

This two-time Grammy nominee’s career has taken Cidny (Cindy) from singing back-up with Elton John to having eight critically acclaimed solo albums, including 1999's award winning “Somewhere Between Heaven and Earth”. Followed by “Neverland” and “dream #29” and Cid's 2010 "Howling Trains and Barking Dogs". In 2007 Cidny formed the “super-trio”- The Refugees- with songwriting greats Wendy Waldman and Deborah Holland. The Refugees released two CDs 2009's Unbound and 2012's THREE. Both stayed on the Folk/Americana charts for many months. A new Refugees EP is due out in 2019. Since 2016, Cidny has been performing his autobiographical one person show "Somewhere Between: Not An Ordinary Life" in theaters around the country, including Los Angeles, New York, Santa Fe NM, Portland, ME and Nashville to rave reviews. In early 2020, the major documentary "Invisible", directed by TJ Parsell, will be released in which Cid is featured. Also, either late 2019 or early 2020, Cid will release his first album as "Cidny Bullens". He is recording in Nashville with co-producer Ray Kennedy. The songs reflect the last seven years during his gender transition. In 2020, Cid's memoir will not be far behind.
MY ONE PERSON SHOW PRODUCTION SOMEWHERE BETWEEN:Not an ordinary life. WAS IN FULL SWING AROUND THE COUNTRY. I'VE HAD SUCCESSFUL RUNS IN NASHVILLE (twice), ALBUQUERQUE, NM, SANTA FE, NM (twice), PORTLAND, ME (three times), FLORIDA, and LOS ANGELES most recently (twice). I also did a special performance of the show in NYC. I will be performing it again starting in 2020. Keep an eye out for dates.
You have to see this! It is an extraordinary story of an exceptional human being. What a story! What a life! What a fantastic show! "
