"Resistant Me: Living in Cyn"

Living in Cyn: She's got presence and skills in spades.

WITH a certain edgy affinity for '80s power pop bolstered by amazing vocal work by Cyn Acevedo, Resistant Me rips out high-energy songs with intense musicianship and classic rock smarts that belie the fact that they've only just begun their journey to rock stardom. While lead singer/songwriter Acevedo and the other band members have been laying down tracks separately for some years, the almost divine gelling of talent in Resistant Me is a more recent phenomenon. It's often difficult to find a band that has presence, skills and chemistry that can also up the ante and rip out simply killer tracks, but here Resistant Me has all that in spades, latching onto a throwback sound full of irresistible hooks led by a legit bad girl rocker with chops to spare.

Resistant Me has also gotten write up’s in not only Metro Magazine but also Zero Magazine, SJSU Spartan Daily and the cover of West Valley College’s newspaper The Norseman. They’ve also received rave reviews by web-based company Muzic.com. “Another sizzling track [Last Night (Blank Club)] from Resistant Me.” “Cyn's voice is gorgeous…” “This track [Bad Girl Rehab] has me hitting repeat every time I play it. There's honesty here, and passion. Not to mention an unforgettable hook.”

Resistant Me also has an energetic live show. Cyn commands attention and the guys perform with as much passion and energy as the songs themselves. Cyn is extremely prolific and has enough songs for many albums to come. The band is versatile and can fit into many genres. Cyn’s writing style has many different faces. Resistant Me is commercial and marketable but have a next big thing, sound all their own. They describe it as Cyndi Lauper meets Nine Inch Nails or Orgy. They’re very energetic with a positive message but still edgy and in your face.

Resistant Me is ready to take the world by storm!
