"And when Old Grim comes calling and we dance into the pale I hope he don't mind the steel in my spine and the dirt under my nails," Cheyloe sings in her song, Fire Tests Gold. While words and rhymes have always been her first love, Cheyloe has reined the use lyrics AND melody to create the picture she wants you to see. "It's like a balancing act," she says, "you must have both to walk the tight rope of the listener's imagination." Ever a fan and aficionado of the songwriting craft, Cheyloe writes the songs she--and in turn, the world--wants to hear. She has written almost 100 original songs and while many of them are true stories and snapshots from her own life, she hopes you'll see yourself there as well. Cheyloe is a member of the Sunday Writer's Nights family at Nashville's famous Bluebird Cafe. She has won several singer/songwriter contests and awards. Music has taken her many places where she has met some of the most wonderful people and she looks forward to meeting you too, whoever you are.
