Cindy Lee Berryhill

The Adventurist

Release date: March 10, 2017


First release in 10 years from the acclaimed singer/songwriter with star-studded accompaniment and arrangements

Berryhill emerged on the music scene in the late 1980s with Who’s Gonna Save The World, followed by the Lenny Kaye produced Naked Movie Star. 1994’s Garage Orchestra continued the trend, receiving four stars from Rolling Stone. Sadly, her husband, Crawdaddy magazine founder Paul Williams sustained a traumatic brain injury in 1995, and while she continued to write and perform, she focused on caring for him until his passing in 2013.

Determined to retain and honor the beauty and joy of the relationship they shared, Berryhill set out to write and record an album full of visionary songs. With the help of her musical friends including DJ Bonebrake (X, The Knitters), Probyn Gregory and Nelson Bragg (Brian Wilson), Syd Straw, Michael Jerome Moore (The Blind Boys Of Alabama, Richard Thompson, John Cale) and more, they all understood that a grand musical adventure was in store. The result? The Adventurist.

With co-production from Grammy® winner Sheldon Gomberg (Ben Harper, Peter Case, Rickie Lee Jones), David Schwartz (television composer for Northern Exposure, Arrested Development, Deadwood), and others, The Adventurist showcases orchestral arrangements, chunky rock guitar, and as Berryhill friend and fan Dave Alvin puts it—“raw nerve lyrics.”

The Adventurist is an album full of songs that are a tribute to the love shared with her late husband, but will definitely resonate with everyone who takes this journey.
