For 40 years, Cindy Wilson has worked with the B-52s. A founding member of the Athens, Georgia-based band who brought listeners classics such as “Rock Lobster” and “Love Shack”, she had never released any solo material until 2016. Now the vocalist and songwriter is releasing her debut LP, Changes.
Like most things associated with both Wilson and the B-52s, her solo project came about through relationships she formed in her hometown of Athens. She met her new supporting bandmates, Ryan Monahan and Lemuel Hayes, after hiring them as a Beatles cover band to play at her son's 10th birthday, and after about a decade of fun playing shows around town, the trio finally decided to hit the studio, teaming up with producer Suny Lyons.
