Cindy Wilson is a vocalist, songwriter and a founding member of new wave rock band The B-52s. She is currently producing solo work and performing a new show called «Change».

The B-52's

The B-52's were formed in 1976. Cindy Wilson, her older brother and guitarist Ricky Wilson, organist and vocalist Kate Pierson, drummer and percussionist Keith Strickland, and vocalist Fred Schneider played an impromptu musical jam session after sharing a tropical Flaming Volcano drink at a local Chinese restaurant. They later played their first concert in 1977 at a Valentine's Day party for their friends. Cindy Wilson and the others broke into the music world with their campy, '60s retro band. Their 1979 debut album The B-52's, yielded the hit singles «Rock Lobster» and «Planet Claire» and launched the band into stardom.

The 1980s and 1990s

On April 21, 1985, Cindy Wilson married Keith Bennett, a successful advertiser who was a longtime friend of the band and Ricky's guitar tech on tour. Ricky Wilson died later that year, leaving her devastated. Cindy Wilson took a sabbatical from the band in 1990 to concentrate on raising a family. Wilson rejoined The B-52's in 1994. In 1998 she took part in recordings from which two new songs were selected to be included along with the band's hit singles on the album Time Capsule: Songs for a Future Generation. Wilson then took maternity leave in 1999, later rejoining the band in 2001 for regular touring of their greatest hits.
More B-52s

The B-52's completed the album Funplex in 2007 and it was released in March 2008. Wilson co-wrote every song on the album with the three other band members. In all, she has co-written much of the band's back catalogue, including «Dance This Mess Around», «Private Idaho» and all of the Cosmic Thing album including hit singles «Love Shack» and «Roam». Her vocal efforts include the typical B-52's «call-and-response» vocals with Schneider and/or Pierson, as well as her harmonies with Pierson on the band's all-female songs such as «Roam», «52 Girls», «Cake», «Legal Tender», «Summer of Love» and «Juliet of the Spirits». One of the band's signature elements is the setup between the three vocalists. However, Wilson sings the greatest number of solo performances in the band, especially on their earlier albums. Examples of Cindy's solo vocal performances in The B-52's include «Hero Worship», «Loveland», «Nip It in the Bud», «Girl from Ipanema Goes to Greenland», «Ain't It a Shame», «She Brakes for Rainbows» and the live favorite «Give Me Back My Man».

Cindy's Current Musical Work

In September 2016 Cindy Wilson released a limited edition «Sunrise» EP of newly produced material and announced an upcoming release of the already completed full-length «Change». Her group includes producer / engineer Suny Lyons (pacificUV, Dream Boat, Phosphorescent, Hope For Agoldensummer, Honeychild, Lovers), Ryan Monahan (Easter Island, Monahan), Lemuel Hayes (pacificUV) and Marie Davon (powerkompany). In Cindy's latest show, «Change» (also her upcoming album title), she swoons and whispers over swirls of subtle psychedelia, pulsing synths, disco strings and dance beats while video projections gyrate behind the band and lush ambience ties each song seamlessly to the next. As of Fall 2016 Cindy is performing «Change» in the continental USA.
