about

Cindy D'Lequez-Sage is an enigma.

Her eclectic influences were garnered during decades living in Notting Hill, vortex of an extraordinary variety of musical melting pots. Here she grew up in the milieu of the likes of Joe Brown, Arthur Askey and Alma Cogan, and later cut her musical teeth hanging out with some ground-breaking musicians in the area, learning the song writing and recording business from the inside with fellow travellers like Bob Calvert, John Cale, Nico, Viv Stanshall, Adrian Wagner, Paul Rudolph and Arthur Brown.

But only rarely does she dip her own toe in the waters of public release. When she does, the ripples spread widely. She inspired the dialogue in Brian Eno's "Cindy tells Me" and provided the haunting soundtrack theme "The Moon's Lament" for the Film "The Lovely Bones".

"Reptile Dollar Blues", written and performed with Lester Square (whom she first met when the first incarnation of the Monochrome Set helped work up some of her songs in rehearsal in the 70s) is another lament of sorts, an angry protest at the dark forces of a cold-blooded corporate elite and its insatiable need for war and discord.
