CHANGE began for Wilson nearly a decade ago upon her part-time return to her hometown of Athens, GA. She first encountered local multi-instrumentalist Ryan Monahan and drummer Lemuel Hayes when their Beatles tribute band was hired to play her son’s birthday party. Wilson, Monahan, and Hayes began teaming up for gigs, performing classic garage and psychedelic covers, before ultimately hitting the studio to create new music all their own. Athens-based producer/musician Suny Lyons was soon enlisted to join the group creative triad, resulting in the SUNRISE and SUPERNATURAL EPs, acclaimed by PopMatters for possessing “an undeniable sense of adventure.”

Produced by Lyons at The Space Station in Athens, CHANGE is as bold as anything in Wilson’s groundbreaking four-decade canon, melding future pop, disco drama, American standards, electronica, and more into her own distinctive creative vision. New songs like “Mystic” and the transformative title track are intricate and inventive, lush and luminous with strings, synthesizers, harmonies, and Wilson’s utterly distinct vocal magic. Further highlights include a pair of unexpected covers: New Colony Six’s soft rock classic, “Things I’d Like to Say,” and “Brother,” written and originally performed by Athens’ own beloved Oh-OK. WithCHANGE Cindy Wilson has once again remade pop in her own innovative, irresistible image.
