Cheryl Metrick Bio

Author, Artist, Poet, Actor, Singer/Songwriter 

A New York actor (over 25 years) in theater, TV, and film. I held principal roles in many independent films, commercials, infomercials, voice-overs, and a Long Island Cable variety show. Member of: SAG/AFTRA; AEA; GIAA; BMI; LIIFE; IMDb (www.imdb.com/name/nm1436588) 

 I am a professional singer/songwriter and recording artist. Mainly I sing pop, jazz, classic rock, standards, and musical theatre material. I've performed at several NY Catskill Mountain resorts/hotels and cabaret clubs, charitable events, and industrials. My song There Are Angels (wrote music & lyrics) won several songwriting contests. Cheryl Metrick: Fantasy & Romance is a recording of one of my live cabaret performances. My latest CD set is On the Wings of Inspiration: 13 Meditations, guided meditations (written/recited by me with music composed/played by Frank Owens.) Coming soon, a new CD of all my songs. I have Facebook pages for There Are Angels and for On the Wings of Inspiration, plus my music is often on Radio Airplay (internet radio station) and various internet venues. 

The following is a review excerpt from one of my cabaret acts: 

"Cheryl Metrick... from the way she took command of that stage you would swear she'd been here before, everything was right in place, and her body language connecting with the audience was first-rate. Her mater was inspirational. She was just as at home with the hilarious 'Beethoven Chased by Rossini' sung as if she were a cat. No doubt that she'll be back - watch for Cheryl Metrick!" Maryann Lopinto, CAB MAGAZINE

 I collaborated on a book with Jeree Wade MA, a life coach, and fellow singer: On the Wings of Inspiration: Exploring Our Inner Life through Interpretive Symbols (Xlibris Publishing.) Based on a collection of my drawings and poems, the book's premise explores the interpretation of the art and takes the reader on a journey into the drawings to find more personal meaning within. It is also somewhat an autobiography via the use of pictures. With Jeree's commentary, a guided process supports the reader to move into a more peaceful and centered place on understanding and implementing life's lessons. The book and various ebook varieties are available at Amazon, B&N, and Xlibris.com. 

My interests include spirituality, music, acting, art, poetry, writing, humanitarianism, ecology, prevention of cruelty to animals and humans, reruns of Twilight Zone, and just about anything by Frank Capra, Hitchcock or Spielberg!
