“Cynthia Brando is one of the most fascinating and amazing singers you’ll ever experience. To see her perform is simply captivating. Her music signals the complexity of life’s experiences. When she sings, she bares her soul; in her performances, she is literally naked in front of you with the raw power of her voice, music and emotion.”
At the end of 2013, Cynthia took a long awaited step in her music career when she moved from quiet Northern California to the city of Los Angeles. In those years, she developed a connection with fellow musicians and appreciators as a performer all across the Los Angeles region and beyond-sharing her unique “vintage vibe” powerful vocals and steady folk rock rhythms in clubs, homes and as a street performer. In 2015, Cynthia started “Music Emerging”-a project of inspiring artist interviews, articles and a successful concert series. Music Emerging is growing to include a portal of resources and emotional support for artists. Cynthia has been published as a guest writer on the music sites Music Clout and Music Industry How To, and she has received honorable mentions for her music in the Songdoor International Songwriting Competition and the American Songwriter Magazine Lyric Contest. Cynthia is a 2017 recipient of a Hemera Foundation Fellowship Award for her music. She is currently working on a musical based project in the arena of the healing arts based on her fellowship experience.
