When East Side Digital Records folded, the Blood Oranges amicably disbanded. Cheri then recorded two solo albums during her active music career.

The Knitter (1995) was produced by Eric "Roscoe" Ambel, and released on East Side Digital Records. Artists involved included guitarist Eric Ambel (The Del-Lords), bassist Ray Mason, drummer Will Rigby (The dB's), guitarist Mark Spencer, Andy York (bass).

The Northeast Kingdom (1997) was produced by The Twangtrust (Steve Earle and Ray Kennedy) and released on E-Squared Records. Musicians include Steve Earle, Emmylou Harris (vocals), Tammy Rogers (fiddle), Jimmy Ryan (mandolin), Mark Spencer (guitar), and Will Rigby (drums).

Post-music career

There has always been a strong link between gardening and Cheri's music. When not performing music, Cheri tended an organic farm in Massachusetts.

Since the release of The Northeast Kingdom, Cheri has focused on flower farming, and has rarely recorded or performed.
