The Treehouse Trio Sessions

After digging deep into her musical beginnings, Cynthia returns to the more stripped down sounds of her earliest influences-folk music. Steeped in the traditional folk backdrop of one voice and a guitar, the songs reach powerful levels from her signature strong rhythms, unique vintage style vocals, grounding bass from Dickie Chandler and outstanding lead guitar by Ed Tree, elevating folk music to new heights. Ed Tree also co-produced, engineered and mixed the album in his San Gabriel studio, The Treehouse. He has over 35 years of experience working in the Los Angeles area as a guitarist, engineer and producer and has recorded and/or toured with Spencer Davis, Rita Coolidge, Juice Newton, Al Stewart, Dusty Springfield and Booker T. Jones amongst others.

Cynthia took a big step in her music career when she moved to Los Angeles from a small town in late 2013. She recorded a single release and an EP with Dave Osti of Dirtshack Records, and a single with Ed Tree before this latest project. Her voice has been described as a “little Stevie Nicks with some Edith Piaf,” and her songwriting has received honorable mentions in the Songdoor Songwriting Contest and the American Songwriter Magazine Lyric Contest. credits released June 9, 2018

This hand stenciled guitar organic cotton bandana was hand dyed by myself with local Los Angeles lavender leaves. The color is a smoky brown and the stencil is gold outlined in brown. It features two guitars and floral design around the border. I purchase my blank white bandanas from the Maiwa textile company, a "slow clothes" movement company that works directly and intimately with many artisans from all over the world.

I use an older dyeing process, and it takes about 8 weeks to produce my hand dyed products from soaking the cloth in an organic soybean bath, to collecting the plant material, to preparing a dye bath, dyeing the cloth and then hand stenciling. Slight color variations are normal and I do not put anything on sale that has dramatic shifts in color. Photos are true to color...click on photo to enlarge it.

Comes with a digital download of my single, "Keep it Together"
