Fanny Walked The Earth
About this deal
Who is Cindy Alexander? Cindy Alexander is brilliant and multifaceted, like a prism in sunlight. She’s a songwriter, a singer, a storyteller. She’s a mother of twins and a daughter of mother nature. Fans of her music know she’s beautifully messy and heaven-sent. This award-winning artist has a cult following and an independent streak. Affectionately called “Pnut” by her fans, Alexander has a voice that defies her petite stature. In one moment, she hits rich and earthy lows; in the next, she adds the trill of a coloratura soprano. But technical prowess is hardly the headline: Alexander shares her entire being through music. “In art, we have to be vulnerable. Art is an open heart and a naked soul,” she attests.

Brie Howard Darling Interviews with Riveting Riffs Magazine and Joe Montague". Rivetingriffs.com . Retrieved May 1, 2023.The core line-up comprises sisters June and Jean Millington on guitar and bass, with drummer Brie Darling. This is essentially the original members of the Svelts, a precursor to Fanny. All three sing and contribute to the songwriting, making this a real group effort. Indeed, there’s a sincere unity of enthusiasm and punch, aligned with themes of feminism, determination and love, throughout. Some people may think the themes of feminism and ‘girl empowerment’ are too strong. I would beg to differ. Having read June Millington’s autobiography Land of a Thousand Bridges, with its numerous examples of piss-poor treatment and sexist attitudes they had to endure from the very beginning and throughout their active years, I actually think they show great restraint. There are sadly more than enough examples to pull from, and this could so easily have resulted in very angry and bitter songs. The fact that this is turned into a much more positive and encouraging album, where they ultimately want to empower both sexes for the better, is as extraordinary as the people who pulled it off so well. This album is not designed to steamroll itself into your soul or blow your mind; instead it pulls you in with a blend of infectious harmonies, sharp and catchy hooks, set on a foundation of positive vibes and sublime influence.
