"Cyan plays Spanish-infused rock/world music"

Cyan,"Cloud" [5 song EP] (Indie Release)
Cyan plays Spanish-infused rock/world music. The orchestration makes me think
of a Spanish version of The Cranberries. While there are some good songs, the
main distraction of this CD is Cyan's over-dramatic voice. Maybe it is just
his style, but the backing music is great and very moody. I would like to hear
a full length release, as the final song on this EP, "La Danse De Nos Reves"
is actually the best on this collection.

"CYAN-CLOUD"

CYAN – CLOUD: Cyan was born and raised in Barcelona Spain, winning early acclaim as a musician. He moved to the United States in 2001 to build on that momentum. Cyan plays guitar, sings, writes and produced his most recent five-track EP. A number of noteworthy collaborators are featured on his artistic Cloud. Cyan pens soulful lyrics about observations and struggles. Cyan is a vocalist who sings from the heart. His music is a flavorful blend of pop-rock with Latin undertones. Each song on the CD is different exploring various musical cultures, textures and tones. I particularly liked 'In My Dreams', which starts off with soft instrumentation and singing, than escalates into a colorful, multipart section, which is the bulk of the song before gently fading out. Cyan is a unique artist creating European pop-rock that has worldwide appeal!

"Music Reviews of World, Adult Contemporary, Jazz, Blues, Country"

Review - Born in Barcelona, Cyan is a singer/songwriter who dons many hats.
One is of the traditional singer/songwriter format. And the other is a world
music fedora that is weathered and seen the harshness of the deep desert.
Fusing rock, pop, and Latin rock, “Cloud” is a fun soul-searching adventure.
Cyan lets you inside his head with his intimate lyrics that offer you not just
a glimpse but a long peer into his cerebellum. What’s amazing is that many of
these tracks could easily be a chart-topper—usually most artists struggle to
find one such track. - SMOTHER

Marc Durandeau prepara un nou disc per a la tardor.
La majoria de les cançons seran en català, la resta en anglès, francès i castellà.

Marc Durandeau (CYAN) presenta el primer senzill del disc: "Tal Com Soc" cançó que recull un missatge d'Unió.

Marc es troba a Barcelona preparant el que serà el seu tercer treball discografic sota el segell inependent MDR Music.
Durant els darrers cinc anys Marc Durandeau ha estat treballant als Estata Units col.laborant amb progectes musicals com a compositor y productor.
Després d'aconseguir un numero 1 al Billboard Americà "Latin Tracks" per varies setmanes consecutives amb la cançó "Cuidarte el alma" interpretada per Chayane, va recullir els premis de:

+ Cançó de l'Any BMI Awards 2005
+ Compositor de l'Any Telemundo 2004

Ha col.laborat amb escriptors com Arnie Roman (Cher, Celine Dion, Oletta Addams).
Luis Enrique (Gloria Estefan, Juan Luis Guerra, Artuto Sandoval),
Nina Ossoff (Patti Austin, B Four, The Tamptations).

A native of Barcelona, Spain, Cyan became a musical force in his native land while quite young, holding concerts and winning the EXIT television and radio show competitions not long after his eighteenth birthday. Talent and determination enabled him to build on that early success and sign a contract with PICAP, a top independent label in Catalonia.

Dubbed “the Messenger” by the Catalonian pop music scene because of his ability to connect with the struggles and realities of his audience through deeply moving lyrics, Cyan arrived in the States in 01 to work on a musical project. He calls this phase of his career “one of the most unforgettable experiences of my life.”

Sheer tenacity—he was selling flags on the street at one point to make the payments on his car insurance—kept Cyan focused on his goal, and he began to perform at clubs accompanied only by his guitar.

One of these shows led to an invitation from BMG Publishing for lunch because John Echevarria, the president of Universal Music Latino, wanted to hear more songs.

The association led to a publishing contract with Universal and, ultimately, a move to Los Angeles. It was there that his musical vision really coalesced as he incorporated multicultural influences from his French father and Catalonian mother.

As a co-writer for international recording artist Chayanne’s “Cuidarte El Alma,” Cyan earned critical and industry acclaim. The song rose to the top of Billboard’s Hot Latin charts and held its position for several weeks; was nominated for Song of the Year for Univision’s Premios Lo Nuestro; won Songwriter of the Year at the 2004 Telemundo Premios De La Gente awards; and won Song of the Year at the 2005 BMI Awards.

Cyan decided to produce his own music soon after, and the EP “Cloud” resulted. In his newest work he has remained true to his art, crafting soulful lyrics and fusion-inspired melodies that resonate with his worldwide audience.

He attributes the success of his latest venture to hard work and people who were “open to possibilities and open to dreams.” There’s no doubt that doors will continue to open for this engaging world music talent.
