Purchase of Cindy Wilson's new EP 'Sunrise' gets you priority line placement for the meet & greet! In addition to this CD, she will be signing two additional items!

"Wilson’s solo sound is distinctively different from her work in The B-52s. Rather, it’s a sultry and shimmering mix of electronica, crooning and folky goodness, with a dose of rock new wave tossed in." -Washington Times

Cindy Wilson's current endeavor is as far from The B-52s as one can possibly imagine. Rather than shouting from the rooftops in "The World’s Greatest Party Band", Wilson swoons and whispers over swirls of subtle psychedelia, Quincy Jones-era strings, and pulsing synths.

With echoes of Air, Bjork, Tame Impala, and Gary Numan, the band refers to its infectious brand of new wave electro-pop as "Turbo Chill,” a sonic synopsis offered by the hosts of Adult Swim’s Stupid Morning Bullshit following the release of Wilson’s solo debut EP, Sunrise. Two years in the making, Change offers a challenge to fans of the iconic B-52’s, while cultivating a new generation of listeners.

After four decades on the road internationally with The B-52s, Change represents a full circle for Wilson. Tapping into her own local stock in order to start anew, Cindy returned to the same town that nurtured her own creative roots: Athens, Georgia. Change features a “native” cast of Athenian musicians including Ryan Monahan (Easter Island, Monahan), producer/engineer Suny Lyons (PacificUV, Dream Boat), Lemuel Hayes (Ola Moon, PacificUV), and Marie Davon (powerkompany).

The project’s live show represents one continuous audio/visual trance, as each song transitions into the next with unique band-created projections. The entire song cycle is an existential meditation in itself, exploring universal ideas of life, love, and the circle of birth and death - expressing the ancient and perennial principle that the only constant is change.

“It’s very different from a B-52’s show,” Wilson recently told PopMatters. “I get to play around with different ideas and beautiful melodies. I don’t have to yell in a rock voice. I think you can get an emotional depth in the types of rooms we’re playing that you can’t find in larger rooms.”
