Cindy Bullens (born March 21, 1953 in Massachusetts, USA) is an American singer-songwriter, best known for her work on the Grease film soundtrack. Cindy got her first real break when she crashed a studio party and met Elton John, who was impressed enough to hire Cindy as a backup singer on his US tour. Cindy sang with Elton on three major tours. In 1978, Cindy was nominated for a Grammy Award for her vocal performances on the Grease film soundtrack. The following year, she released her debut solo album Desire Wire (United Artists, 1979) and scored a breakthrough hit with her song “Survivor,” which earned Cindy a second Grammy Award nomination for best rock vocal performance. Signed to Casablanca Records in 1980, Cindy released Steal The Night, a strong sophomore album with the title cut. Cindy married Dan Crewe in 1979, and for the next ten years she largely set aside her career to raise their two daughters, Reid, now 23, and Jessie, who passed away in 1996. In the mid 90’s, Cindy began spending time in Nashville, writing with such songwriters as Al Anderson and Radney Foster, with whom she penned the hit song, “Hammer & Nails.” Such diverse artists as Texas blues diva Sarah Brown, New Orleans soul queen Irma Thomas, and pop-country superstars the Dixie Chicks have all recorded Cindy’s songs.
