Cindy Morgan

    singer, songwriter, author



    indy Morgan is a storyteller. For more than 20 years her prolific songs—poetically mining the depths of life, love, loss and everything in between—have grown deep roots with fans around the world. Her melodies effortlessly woo soul-stirring lyrics to the page, her songs like trusted friends whose companionship never grows weary.

    A two-time GRAMMY® nominee and one of Nashville’s most influential singer/songwriters, Cindy has garnered 12 Dove Awards, including the prestigious Songwriter of the Year trophy. With 21 #1 hits to her credit, in addition to her own iconic discography she has penned songs for such artists as Amy Grant, India.Arie, Rascal Flatts, Natalie Grant, Michael W. Smith, Point of Grace, Mandisa and Francesca Battistelli, among many others.

    “I think what I have always desired to do as a writer and as an artist is to use music, and especially songs, to connect and encourage other people,” Cindy shares. “I feel like that is my spiritual commission in life. There have certainly been moments in my career where I have lost sight of that, but in the end that is what makes me want to keep writing, keep making records, because I want to connect and more importantly, encourage the listener.”

    Cindy is also becoming a captivating voice in the literary world. Her latest book, How Could I Ask For More: Stories of Blessings, Battles and Beauty, is a collection of thoughtfully articulated snapshots of defining seasons throughout her life. Reflections on a hardscrabble childhood in the mountains of East Tennessee, adventures of a young woman finding her way in the big city, and the wit and wisdom of a wife and mother raising teenage daughters prove Cindy’s pen is equally as powerful on the written page.

    “This is a book about remembering what matters,” she explains. “Stories from my own struggles and moments of clarity, as well as stories of other people who have allowed me to share their journeys. Stories that remind us of not letting the things in life that don’t matter rob us of the things that do.”

    Hand in hand with the book, Cindy also reveals a highly-anticipated new recording, Bows & Arrows. Donning the lead producer’s hat for the first time in her career—along with co-producer and engineer Kyle Buchanan (Ginny Owens, Andrew Greer)—the project is a tapestry of favorite sounds, from Americana, to pop, to symphonic, all woven together with a common thread. “Bluegrass was the music of my childhood,” she explains. “My father was a musician and a songwriter who played guitars in country and bluegrass bands. My mom was a gospel singer. I find myself always returning to the music of my youth, and I think Bows & Arrows is really the amalgamating of all the music I have loved in my life.”

    “It is a very personal record,” she continues. “I was just writing songs that were brimming inside of me, writing to make me happy and also in hopes that the stories resound with other people. You’ve just got to take the risk, write your heart and let it do what it’s gonna do.”

    Bows & Arrows boasts an impressive list of collaborators, from celebrated singer/songwriter Gabe Dixon, who lends his voice on “Can’t Help Yourself,” to performances by legendary bluegrass mandolinist Sierra Hull and famed upright bassist Viktor Krauss, among others. With a nod to her new book, a highlight of the album is a duet with acclaimed singer/songwriter Andrew Peterson on a reimagined “How Could I Ask for More,” one of Cindy’s most beloved and requested songs of all time.

    Completing both a book and recording during the past year has prompted a season of reflection for Cindy, whose professional musical journey began in the early ‘90s as a young signee to Word Records. Her debut single, the synth-laden pop anthem “Let It Be Love,” was an immediate radio smash and paved the way for a slew of accolades and honors. Although Cindy’s sound has since gravitated back to the roots-driven music of her youth, her songs—both new and old—have proven their remarkable staying power.

    While 1996’s critically acclaimed Listen marked the first definitive departure from the pop foundation of her breakout, it was 1998’s landmark recording The Loving Kind that fully demonstrated the caliber of Cindy’s artistry. The piano-based collection, inspired by the final days of Christ’s life, has become an Easter standard, with fans returning to the album year after year as a way to draw closer to the Heart of its message.

    Widely respected in the sacred circle of Nashville’s creative fold, Cindy’s endeavors have taken various forms over the years. In addition to such highly praised independent solo releases as 2008’s Beautiful Bird, she is half of the acclaimed pop duo St. Lola In the Fields with longtime writing partner Jeremy Bose. Their songs have been featured in numerous television shows, including “Drop Dead Divas,” “Pretty Little Liars” and “One Tree Hill,” among other film and TV placements.

    Another collaboration particularly close to her heart is the Hymns for Hunger initiative, which Cindy co- created with Dove-nominated singer/songwriter Andrew Greer. Showcasing selections from their respective hymns recordings—for Cindy, her 2011 Some Glad Morning: Hymns & Spirituals, featuring Americana/folk-inspired arrangements of such beloved favorites as “I’ll Fly Away,” “It Is Well” and “Leaning On The Everlasting Arms”— the annual tour helps raise awareness and resources for local and international hunger relief organizations.

    When she’s not in the studio, on the road or collaborating with some of the best and brightest in the music community, Cindy and her family—husband Sigmund Brouwer (a critically-acclaimed best- selling author) and daughters Olivia and Savannah—split their time between Nashville and Alberta, Canada. For this raconteur at heart, the daily journey continues to inspire stories of all kinds, whether sung in songs, penned to paper or recounted face-to-face over a latte.

    “You have to keep moving forward,” Cindy shares. “Keep discovering new ways to express old truths. I think that’s what we’re all trying to do. You can never rest on what was but keep pushing forward to what is. Living in each moment to its fullness.”

    “I am so glad to be a part of the music community. To write songs that encourage someone else with the supernatural power of words and notes.”
