Cindy Alter tells us how she got the idea for Essential Collection – Last One Standing
“I was going through various press clippings and vinyls and was amazed how much good material I released over the years and thought it would be a great idea to give my loyal fans a retrospect of some of the hits and my personal favourites.”
“Music found me and it has been my saving grace through some of the hardest times in my life and I am always touched by my fans telling me how the songs have inspired them.”
Through her music, Cindy Alter has expressed positive resilience through some adverse times in her personal life including surviving stage 4 leukaemia, being in a physically and emotionally abusive relationship and being the victim of a rogue manager who left Clout virtually destitute upon their demise in the early eighties.
