Bio

At the piano, Cynthia Marie brings a new voice to folk music, infusing her songs with spirited improvisations and soulful melodies learned from western and eastern traditions.  Her music recently aired on KBCS and Hollow Earth radio, and received support from the Mayor’s Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs, as well as Jackstraw Productions’ Artist Support program.

She currently has 2 releases out, recorded with Golden Tree Story:  "Openings", an album of songs about love, friendship, and life, released independently in 2010, and followed up in 2013 with the EP, “Beyond”.  The EP's central track, "Orphan Moonlight," is an original song about a refugee orphan.

“Golden Tree Story is like a fine elixir, a tonic for the soul. This music contains compassion and careful listening, as well as an inner joy that manifests in carefully constructed melodies.  One ear is tuned to tradition, the other to the future, and from their instruments and voices comes a beautiful song.  Recommended for anyone in need of rejuvenation."  Rob Hinrix, ROCKiT Community Arts

As a collaborator, she has enjoyed performing in a wide array of settings, including theater, world music, original composition, classical, jazz/improv, folk music, dance, and vocal/instrumental accompanying.  She has shared the stage with Pacific Northwest gems Camelia Jade & Mike Antone, San-Diego’s Summer Januaries, Minnesotan guitarist/singer-songwriter, Steve Olof Larson, and many other talented songwriters & musicians. 

Cynthia has recently been featured in D.C.'s "The 9 Songwriter’s series," hosted by Justin Trawick, and has backed up talented artists such as Jason Masi, Elena Lacayo, Jill Warren, Roemer (Germany), and more.  On the schedule for this year is more recording, traveling to Italy, and great shows :)
