Cidny Bullens (formerly Cindy Bullens) grew up in Massachusetts, and release 2 albums in the late 1970’s on United Artists Records.

She provided vocals on three songs for the soundtrack of the 1977 feature fiml “Grease”, for which she earned a Grammy nomination for best rock vocal performance. Cindy got her start in the music business by performing as a backup vocalist with Elton John on three major tours. In 1999, Cindy’s album “Somewhere Between Heaven and Earth” featured guests Bonnie Raitt, Lucinda Williams, Rodney Crowell and Bryan Adams.

Cidny and Deborah also comprise two-thirds of the group The Refugees, also featuring Wendy Waldman.
