Cheryl Cawood is a Singer/Songwriter and a Professional Musician playing Acoustic and Bass Guitars, and Upright Bass.

Cheryl’s family roots run deep in the mountains of Eastern Kentucky though she grew up in Covington, Kentucky near the banks of the mighty Ohio River. She performed on the Greater Cincinnati Area music scene for many years covering everything from Traditional /Top-40 Country, Classic /Top-40 Rock, and Blues, to Polka-Funka-Rock-A-Billy, Hippie Music, a bit of Jazz, and even Irish Folk Music.  She celebrated many vibrant years on the scene!   

One of the coolest moments has been getting air play on local Cincinnati radio stations, WNKU and WAIF with the iconic band "The Flock".  She recorded multiple cuts on their original album ‘Recovering Catholics’.  Hanging out with prolific songwriter David Gilligan inspired her to be more serious about her own songwriting.  Being an active member of the Cincinnati/Dayton NSAI Chapter for several years also brought tons of inspiration to become a better writer.  

Jack Saunders of White Cat Studios in Houston is producing her solo CD as we speak.  This endeavor brings collective insight into a very real person and a vivid collection of some of the stories that framed her life. Watch for individual Singles coming out in the next few months. The full CD release is projected for this summer.

Songwriter Influences:  Jeffrey Steele, Dolly Parton, Lucinda Williams, Bryan Adams, John Cougar Mellencamp, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Loretta Lynn, Bruce Springstein, Shawn Colvin, and countless others.  "If the lyric writing is good and the music moves my internal life magnet, then my body will probably go into auto-pilot mode, right?!!" 

In addition to working with Kickin It Dixie she has decided to be more involved on the songwriter scene as a solo artist.  She serves as the hostess for The Old Quarter Acoustic Cafe's Songwriter Group.  The new group is beginning to shape as they move toward starting a Pro Writer Series.  She does perform with other artists and musicians in the area as well.
