Is Cynthia Witthoft a real person/artist, or is the whole thing just a hoax?

I recently found out about this guitarist. She has apparently released albums since the early 90's, but I have my doubts. I have found no wiki entry for her, there's nothing in English on the first 10 Google pages that isn't either a catalogue, download or video of her material.

I have found no wiki entry for her, there's nothing in English on the first 10 Google pages that isn't either a catalogue, download or video of her material. She's well-represented in open-access forums like Last.FM, Metacafe and Blogspot, where she has a cult following. For somebody who's been around, though, there is a dearth of information, and the guitar tone sounds too... new! She's accused of stealing songs, like ripping off Disturbed and Hawkwind. The one scan of a supposed 'Compilation' of hers is ostensibly published by 'Alexis Korner' enterprises- Alexis Korner, the blues singer. It seems a bit dubious, though the compilation 'Bootleg Her' is obviously a reference. Anyway, none of the scarce bio information provided on Last.FM is verifiable by my methods, so can somebody prove beyond doubt that this person is not a hoax? I want truuuth!
