I want to thank all the wonderful people who attended the Ould Sod gathering this past Sunday on my behalf. It made me cry when I heard about you all being there.
The Sweet Relief Organization has launched the Cindy Wasserman Fund to help our own Cindy as she goes through Breast Cancer treatment and our friend Exene Cervenka of X wrote this very sweet letter in support of the fund.
"Drennen and Wasserman bent notes in tandem, musically summoning a flawless union, the kind the song's lyric ‘(Why Am I) Chained to a Memory’ laments when it self-destructs."
Our new album 'It's Everly Time!' is out today!
We're heading out on a 12 date East-Coast/Mid-West tour with our friends, legendary punk rockers X!
LOS ANGELES TIMES’ Pop & Hiss premiered the first single “I Used To Love You” off of the new album, IT’S EVERLY TIME!
Leading up to the release of our new album 'It's Everly Time!' we will be appearing for three nights at LA's famous Hotel Cafe! April 30th, June 3rd and to celebrate the release itself July 16th! There will be very special guests appearing with us and a host of other surprises. And a special limited edition hand screened poster by our friend Scrojo will also be available at the gigs. We're excited to share these songs with our hometown family before heading out on tour later this summer. We look forward to seeing you! xo DRW
Directed and shot by Frank Lee Drennen himself, a new video, for 'God Help Me' has been released to celebrate the re-release of 'Bright Morning Stars' on RED 180 gram vinyl. The album is already available at the upcoming shows, but will also be available online and at select indie record stores in May! Details to come.
There’s a mention about Cindy's involvement in the new Allison Anders film, 'Ring of Fire' about the life of June Carter Cash in a review of the premier. The movie stars Jewel and John Doe as her father A.P. Carter and was premiered at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles. Cindy sings the voices of both June's mother and aunt Sarah in the movie. In fact, the first voice you hear is hers in the opening song of the film.
This month's issue of the Big Takeover had this to say about Cindy's performance with John Doe in NYC last September:
"When the X legend plays New York he brings an excellent female to sing harmonies with him, and Cindy Wasserman was the best yet (amazingly besting Neko Case at Joe's Pub in 2007). Her voice blended with his like syrup with melted butter..."
Hello Everyone!

Would be lovely to see you. Happy belated new year and more news coming soon!! Cheers, Cindy
We are pleased to announce that we will be supporting our friend John Doe on his West Coast dates in October. We will be performing as a duo (Frankie Lee and Cindy) and are excited to finally be bringing the songs from the new record to our home country! See you there x
