Singer-songwriter Cindy Rainne was taunted and teased as a young girl. Her coping mechanism became crafting an effervescent exterior—to outsiders, she was bubbly, filled with sunshine, all smiles. It was a disguise further enhanced by her prodigious musical talents. Whether she was making a musical appearance or a social one, it was all a performance. However, through using her musical gifts to heal her soul, she's found the courage to face down the specters of her past. Now, she steps into the light with The Mask, a masterful debut EP that promotes self-love and self-expression. "I spent a lot of time being who I thought people wanted me to be. Working on this album had me digging to figure out who I was, and giving myself permission to be that person," reveals the Brooklyn, New York-based artist. Cindy calls her music "clearwater soul," it's an elixir of raw truths and organic instrumentation, and its earthy purity nourishes the soul. Within this stream of expression are elements of classical music, jazz, pop, Caribbean rhythms, opera, gospel, soul, and R&B. Cindy's lyrics are sassy and sensitive, she writes from her own redemptive journey of reclaiming her dignity and identity from the shackles of a painfully complex childhood.
