Bio

Actress, singer (Best known for "Santa Baby" - the one that was never Marilyn)

Soundtracks: Party Monster, NCIS LA

"Your voice is like a pearl in my ear."

The bio blurb:

Cynthia "c." Basinet, a throwback to an earlier era of sultry style and elegance, is a gorgeous actress, model and recording artist. The leggy comedic redhead began her career as a fashion model in San Francisco.

Always a classically trained musician, since childhood (when she first learned to play the flute, sax and sing) and an astute businesswoman, Basinet established an entirely new channel of distribution for her music using the Internet to bypass the usual Hollywood and recording industry path to bring her releases directly to listeners around the World. With worldwide radio play and millions of downloads (however, often credited to Marilyn Monroe, who never recorded the song) she has created an entertainment phenomenon with her rendition of "Santa Baby" (also in the film, "Party Monster").

She continues recording and acting while using her music to raise awareness for many, including a trip in May/June of '01 to refugee camps in the Western Sahara.

The CD, "THE STANDARD" 15 years in the making, is available thru Amazon.com and digital distribution.

Her EDM project has her teaming with Irish electronica artist, O'halloran on "Yellow Taxi" available on his CD, "So Much More".
