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.

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).
