October 8th

The trio of artists that is The Refugees emerged on the music scene as a
verifiably unmatched force of talent, diversity, and experience. Each
successful in their own right as a solo artist, Cidny Bullens, Deborah
Holland and Wendy Waldman formed their unique and innovative group in
2007 and since that time have been wowing audiences, radio DJs, and
music critics alike with their soaring harmonies, indelible
musicianship, and unforgettably humorous stage presence.

Cidny Bullens (formerly Cindy) got started as a studio back-up singer
for Bob Crewe and then toured with Elton John after a chance meeting at
a Hollywood party.  Cindy garnered two Grammy Award nominations for her
work on the Grease Movie Soundtrack and her own album Desire Wire, has
had several Nashville co-writes on the Country charts, scored the
Award-winning documentary Space Between Breaths, and wrote the musical
Islands which appeared on Broadway as a special tribute after 9/11.
Cindy’s album Somewhere Between Heaven and Earth (1999) won AFIM’s Best
Rock Album in 2000 and became a worldwide phenomenon for bereaved
parents. Cidny premiered his one person show Somewhere Between: Not an
Ordinary Life. in February, 2016 in Santa Fe, NM. He has had successful
runs in Nashville (where the show was voted Best Solo Show for 2016 by
The Nashville Scene) and Portland, ME. The show is booked around the
country in 2017, with hopes of an Off-Broadway run in 2018.

Deborah Holland began her career as the singer and lone songwriter for
the critically acclaimed band, Animal Logic (with Stewart Copeland of
the Police and virtuoso jazz-bassist Stanley Clarke). Deborah has
released multiple solo albums, including her newest–the stunning
Vancouver in 2013.  She has scored and written dozens of songs for film
and TV, was a long time music professor at California State University
of Los Angeles, and now teaches at Langara College in Vancouver, BC.

Wendy Waldman is recognized as one of the leading recording artists and
songwriters in music since the debut of her band Bryndle in the 1970s.
In her successful solo career, Wendy is responsible for some of the best
loved and most well known songs of the past several decades, including
Vanessa Williams’ “Save the Best for Last,” and The Nitty Gritty Dirt
Band’s version of “Fishin’ in the Dark. She is highly regarded for her
work as a record producer as well, overseeing countless projects in
multiple genres, including Suzy Boguss, New Grass Revival, John Cowen,
and international pop star Meitek Szczesniak.
