BIO (see below)


Cynthia’s journey as a lifelong musician, singer-songwriter and performer started with piano lessons at 13 years old. She became a “bandmate” out of the box, winning a trophy for her first live performance during a “battle of the bands” with her brother Jeff’s garage band. She honed her skill set with her many collaborators starting in the basements of New Jersey, to the clubs of New York City, to her brave move west when she landed in Los Angeles with two suitcases and a guitar she won during a radio contest. A natural born singer, she taught herself how to play at open mics like Highland Grounds, The Crooked Bar and Ground Zero (all Hollywood venues) till she met Dublin born Annmarie Cullen. The songwriting team started their international indie pop band Saucy Monky in late 2001. The quartet went on to chart in Ireland and tour in support of their debut Celebrity Trash, and follow up Turbulence (released in the US via 429/Warner Bros and Measured Records in Scotland). This catalogue of songs brought the girls onto festival stages with their heroes The Cure, PJ Harvey, Wilco, Pink, The B-52’s, Metric and more!

The LA Times said this about the band:

“Saucy Monky shares a lot of the qualities of pop’s classic female-fronted bands — Irrepressible melodicism and smart lyrics...”

After her uber-successful run with Saucy Monky, which included film and TV placement success, a theme song on ABC daytime, Cynthia joined the Los Angeles power trio The Secret Things. Always with a pulse on the European market, the band was picked up by Sweden’s Loud Kult records in 2018 and released a set of singles and the EP Shock Diary. Last October, TST released the #metoo inspired track Keeper on Loud Kult with distribution via The Orchard. The band made 3 provocative music videos culminating with their cover of PJ Harvey’s Down By The Water - kickstarting a series of benefits to support the Transgender community in LA.

Last year, Cynthia was invited by editor Niall Stokes to write a guest column for Hot Press Magazine. Saucy Monky were media darlings and often found themselves in the pages of this prestigious music mag, akin to Rolling Stone in the states.

This season Cynthia is embarking on a solo career. Her first single “Everybody’s Looking At Their Phones” will be released worldwide in July.

In September 2019, she’ll be returning to Ireland for a string of shows with friends and other international songwriters and singers under the Songwriters On Tap series, starting off in Galway at Rosin Dubh September 19th.
