"From Sussex County, NJ, New York, Utah, Nevada, Nashville and every
place in between, performing and singing country music is the best way I
can think of to spend my time with great friends, good music, and a
whole lot of dancin’!”
Cindy Lu was born and raised in Trenton, New Jersey, surrounded by
music. She grew up singing in her church and school choirs, and since
her father and brother were both musicians, her home was also filled
with music. She listened to Roger Miller’s "King of The Road”, Count
Basie & His Orchestra, Frank Sinatra, Barbara Streisand, Blood, Sweat &
Tears, James Taylor, Carole King and Bonnie Raitt. Cindy Lu's music was
greatly influenced by her faith and her family, and she spent many years
singing a variety of music, including classics, oldies, showtunes,
gospel, and pop.
In 1996, on the advice of a friend, Cindy Lu tuned into a country
music radio station. She was instantly hooked! A "country convert" had
been born! Cindy Lu started singing country songs, and, for the first
time in her life, she felt as though her voice had "finally found a
home." Since that day, Cindy Lu has been singing cover as well as her
own original tunes, and produced a demo CD of her original songs in
1999. Three singles from Cindy Lu’s first CD made it to #1 on several
Indie Charts. She has had the privilege of being showcased at Wolfy's
and Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge in Nashville, TN, and has performed at
Legends Corner and Barbara’s, and Wolfy's Tower Bar in the Gaylord
Arena, all in the Downtown District of Nashville.
Cindy Lu was a finalist in Froggy 101’s (Wilkes Barre, PA) True Value
Jimmy Dean Country Showdown (1999). In her native region of Sussex
County New Jersey, she won several talent contests, performed at The New
Jersey State Fair, in New York City at Don't Tell Mama (a nightclub and
cabaret theatre), and countless benefits and private bookings. Cindy Lu
was both a performer and nominee at the OCA Awards Show (Online Country
Awards) in Laughlin, Nevada (October 2000) where she won the "Female
Country Newcomer Award." Cindy Lu performed at the GMA Awards (Golden
Music Awards) in Nashville during Fan Fair 2001. Cindy Lu was awarded
the "2001 Upcoming Female Country Singer" award from NAR - New Artist
Radio. Cindy Lu co-hosted and performed at the New Artist Radio Awards
Show in Park City, Utah in 2002 and 2004, and has been awarded the
Country Female Artist of the Year Award for 2002 and 2004, and the NAR
All Around Entertainer of the Year.
Cindy Lu is honored to be a part of country music and plans to be
singing as long as she is breathing. "Country is a place inside you,
not where you live. God gave me the gift of singing, and country music
has provided me a home. I’d like to share that gift and to bring a
smile to the faces of as many people as I can."
Cindy Lu released her second cd, Two Sides, in May 2003.
