“Cyndi captures the essence of love, admiring, observing, yet basking in the feeling. In the song “Dreaming” she defines the surrealistic imagery of dreaming, and friendship.

“Cyndi is fearless, as willing to share pain and grief as a true love and pure Joy. Her music is engaging and inclusive… you’ll walk away feeling like you have known her all your life.”Paul Pendery
