Tell me where to send updates and goodies!

Cheryl hates spam and is NOT packing it on this trip. Which means she won't be sending any to you either.

All Aboard!

Best-selling New Age artist Cheryl B. Engelhardt is the first person to create and complete an album on a cross-country train. She journeyed from New York to Los Angeles and back via Amtrak. 

Sign up for direct updates to be a part of the journey and to contribute and to discover the deeper meaning behind what it means to go with the flow, trust the journey, release control, and become a masterful passenger. And of course, to see if The Passenger is on track. Which it looks like it is! Within 24 hours of the album being available for pre-order, it jumped to the #1 best-selling album on Amazon in New Age! -->

As with all of Cheryl's music, the goal is to create something worthy of the Billboard Charts AND a GRAMMY-nomination. Will this be the ticket?
