Born in Indianapolis, Cynthia Roberts-Greene began writing songs when she was eight years old. Music to her was a close friend and confidante and writing songs came easily. Trained as a classical pipe organist and educated at Florida State University and the Eastman School of Music, she also studied composition and voice on the university level. As a teenager her favorite singer/songwriters were The Carpenters, Carol King, and The Beatles. She has composed pieces for choir, orchestra, and instruments, including her Memorial Requiem, written in memory of her brother who was killed in Vietnam. Her compositions have been featured on the National Public Radio syndicated program Pipe Dreams. Cynthia's favorite genre of music to listen to is contemplative and New Age music. She feels listening to it gives the mind an opportunity to transcend the everyday fast-paced and often frantic state that some call "normal." Wandering is a compilation of songs that describe various aspects of nature and of human nature; trees, woods, streams, sunsets, dragonflies, full moons, dreams, lost friends, and lost love. The CD closes with a benediction: an Irish Blessing, words which a close friend cherished at the end of her short life. All of the songs on the CD are original, and speak of deep feelings of loss, hope, love of nature, and love of life. She lives with her husband, two teenagers, and three cats in Florida.
