Cyndi Thomson returns after three years

Thursday, January 19, 2006 – More than three years after leaving the music business behind after one hit album, Cyndi Thomson seems to be back.

"Cyndi's just in the early stages of making a record, and we're delighted to be working with her again," said Capitol Nashville publicist Judy McDonough in an email.

There is no word on when an album may be out.

Thomson debuted in 2001 with "My World" and had a number 1 hit with "What I Really Meant to Say."

But she left the industry, saying she did not want to be part of the music business. It is not known what prompted the change of heart.

CD reviews for Cyndi Thomson

My World
Newcomers dot Nashville these days. Contracts signed, records recorded, promises made and they're on their way. Two, three albums later and it's see ya later.

From pep Ón' poppy country ("Things I Would Do") to lost-in-love ballads ("What I Really Meant to Say"), Thomson twists her focus to a decidedly young country crowd.Call her country's Britney »»»

When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: With or without band, Isbell satisfies – Usually, when an artist performs without his regular backing band, it becomes about mathematics of subtraction. That artist is armed with far fewer artistic weapons at his/her disposal, after all. In Jason Isbell's case, though, when he performed with just his wife and fiddler Amanda Shires, it was more about substitution than subtraction.... »»»
Concert Review: Grammy nominations aside, Yola, Kiah are the real deal – Grammy nominations do not make the artist, but Yola and opener Amythyst Kiah underscored time and again on this night that the honors were well deserved. In fact, Yola and Kiah's other group, Our Native Daughters, are nominated in the same category - Best American Roots. Yola has three other nominations as well. The clear winners... »»»
