Each member of the trio is successful in her own right as a solo artist, Cindy Bullens, Deborah Holland and Wendy Waldman formed the innovative group in 2007 and since that time have been wowing audiences, radio DJs, and music critics alike with their soaring harmonies, indelible musicianship, and unforgettably humorous stage presence. Individually, The Refugees have logged more than three decades in the industry, with nineteen solo albums and multiple Grammy Award nominations to their credit, featuring musical styles that blend country, rock, folk, and Americana. UNBOUND, their debut release on Wabuho Records will be officially released this month. The members of the trio play all of the instruments on the recording including guitars, dobro, bass, mandolin, harmonica, accordion, and percussion, and features a mix of innovative new co-writes and fresh arrangements of a selection of their previously recorded radio favorites, including “Save the Best for Last,” “Fishin’ in the Dark,” “(There’s a) Spy in the House of Love,” and “Jellico Highway.”
