The trio of women that is The Refugees play Morso Thursday in Gig Harbor in an 8 p.m. show.
Cindy Bullens, Deborah Holland and Wendy Waldman formed their group in 2007. Individually, they have more than three decades in the industry, with nineteen solo albums and multiple Grammy Award nominations featuring musical styles that blend country, rock, folk, and Americana.
The Refugees are currently working on their new CD “Three” scheduled for release in the Spring of this year. Morso is the first concert on their 2011 touring schedule.
Bullens got her start as a back-up singer for Elton John. She was nominated for two Grammy Award nominations, one for her work on the Grease movie soundtrack, and one for her first solo album “Desire Wire”. Since then she released six solo albums, has collaborated on a Broadway show, scored a documentary and continues to write and record.
Holland began her career as a member of Animal Logic, comprised also of Stewart Copeland and Stanley Clarke. Since her Animal Logic days, Holland has released multiple solo albums, scored and written dozens of songs for film and TV, and served as a music professor at California State University Los Angeles.
Waldman has been a recording artist and songwriter since the debut of her band Bryndle in the 1970s, followed by a successful solo career. Waldman’s songs include Vanessa Williams’ “Save the Best for Last,” and The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band’s version of “Fishin’ in the Dark.”
