Cindy and her brother Ricky Wilson were among the founding members of Athens, Georgia’s B-52s. The band is currently celebrating its 40 th anniversary, and simultaneously, Cindy is celebrating the release of her first solo record, Change. It’s a dance record that she always wanted to do, and as her legendary band wraps touring, she’s finally found the time to live out that dream with the help of Kill Rock Stars.
She splits her time now between Athens and Atlanta. On her way to Birmingham, she talked about the legacy of the B-52s and how her first solo record was realized.
