Cidny Bullens here.

On July 12, 2019, we release our first set of new songs in five years! Our EP,  will be available on iTunes, and other digital sources, and there will be a very limited amount of physical CDs. The video is now on Youtube
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cxR1y_zx9no  Plus here is a link of our LIVE mini-concert we performed last night on Facebook. https://youtu.be/5H5WSsGx3gY We have been strategizing other event and recording ideas for 2018 and we are very excited about what it is come for The Refugees. 

We all have a ton of individual things going on--Wendy is in college taking advanced composition classes and producing, recording, and soon to be releasing  her own new album (www.wendywaldman.com). Deborah is heading up and teaching a professional music and songwriting course at a college in Vancouver, BC. She still has a teenage son to parent, while she has a new solo album herself in production and is working on an AMINAL LOGIC EP, with Stewart Copeland and Stanley Clarke. We are all very excited about that!  (www.deborahholland.net).I JUST finished my first album of new songs as "Cidny" in Nashville, to be released either late 2019 or early 2020. I have been performing my one-person show about my life-- Somewhere Between: Not An Ordinary Life (cidnybullenssomewherebetween.com) all over the country, with a break to record, but hope to resume early next year with a tour in Australia. 

As some of you know, we got together several times at Wendy's house/studio in Northridge, CA, where we wrote and recorded five new songs.  We think they are some of our best work ever!  We are really excited! We are now comtemplating that instead of releasing only the recorded songs as an EP as we had always planned, we want to write more songs and release a whole new album. It's tough to all get together--living on two coasts and in two countries. Still----we think we have more to do. We absolutely love playing, writing, and being with each other. And as we all know now more than ever--the world needs all artists to express themselves now more than ever. Good music is a good thing! So...

Over the last five years, much has changed for each of us personally and individually. (Yes, as most of you know and can now see in the pictures and the live video--I transitioned from Cindy to Cidny).  But what hasn't changed is our love for each other and our desire to make great music together.

So stay tuned! We will keep you posted!We wish you peace, love, and joy as always!

With all that is going on in the world these days--we all need as much of those things as we can get!

With love and much gratitude to our friends, fans and supporters,

Cid, Deborah, and Wendy
