Unnamed 10

Release date: June 9th, 2018



Cynthia Brando is releasing her first full length album since 2009, “The Treehouse Trio Sessions.” The album will be available in physical form through her website,, and on digital outlets (itunes, spotify, etc.) 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.


There will be a promotional tour for the new album starting June 16th with dates in Utah, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona and California which will include a tour diary and updates through her website and company, Music Emerging:

Cynthia Brando CD Release Show!

Old Oak Cellars, 2620 E Foothill Blvd., Pasadena

I am very excited to throw a little party for what I really consider my first full length album-I have been doing music a long time trying to get to a point where I can release a project like this and feel proud and want to share it with others! The album was engineered by Ed Tree who also accompanies me on lead guitar and the wonderful Dickie Chandler on bass who unfortunately will not be able to make the show-but filling in will be Hank Van Sickle. The three of us will perform the album in its entirety. The event is potluck so please bring something to share and get your wine at the winery with a percentage of the bottle price going towards the orginazation MusiCares. For price of admission you will receive a copy of the new album before official release date in support of my upcoming tour! Doors open at 2 and music will start around 2:45-I am going to have some special guests open the show! Then I will perform with my trio at around 4 to finish the evening.
