About Cindy Lee Berryhill
“Squealing and swooping, Cindy Lee Berryhill’s voice is a natural gas. Even more wondrous is the San Diego guitarist’s arranging. To songs whose raw, free ecstasies recall Patti Smith . . . Eccentric tunes whose charm exerts fresh fascination and an odd, gripping luminosity.” - Paul Evans, Rolling Stone, 1994
“A woman of Cindy Lee’s capacity as a lyricist is unique, her insight and raw ability to articulate the human dilemma and articulate it in short order is peerless. She deserves a berth in any Hall of Fame, for the humanities she brings to the usual vanities of song-writing.” - Van Dyke Parks, Fairfield Patch, 2010
