CINDY LEE

Describing a world of beauty, escape, sorrow, loss and catharsis usually needs a strong leap of faith and when it comes to music such a feat is almost impossible, modern day consumption is pulling us by the throats and we don’t have time to surrender, we don’t have time to let the fog, the mystery, the universal shine seek into our eyes and creep into our minds. There are exceptions, Cindy Lee is one of them, a rare all-in lifer, flickering candle.

Cindy Lee is the diva alter-ego of singer and guitarist Patrick Flegel, the one-time captain of the now disbanded and much heralded Canadian band Women. For Flegel, Cindy Lee is more than just a recording music project. It is the culmination of a lifelong exploration of art, the electric guitar, queer identity and gender expression. "Singers like Patsy Cline and The Supremes carried me through the hardest times of my life," explains Flegel, "and also provided the soundtrack to the best times."

Following the dissolution of Women, Flegel would delve deeper into songwriting that bends further toward high atmospherics and bracing melodies – a unique space where splendor naturally collides with experimentation. Delivering moments of sheer beauty through somber reflections on longing and loneliness, Cindy Lee is something to hold onto in a world of disorder.
It’s up to you to decide where the mystery starts and ends, Cindy Lee will be there: she’s on stage, watching you eye to eye, lips to lips, elegance and poise, dissonance and lace, connecting on a primordial level with music that simply floats, lifts and carries any heartbreaking restless being. It’s nothing or… it’s everything.
