Cindy Larson, was born on March 4th several years ago and she has always lived in Michigan, USA but has been fortunate to do a bit of traveling. A bit of that traveling was in 2013 when she was asked to go to Nashville to record her first 5 songs and to do a couple of videos, Elvis is Alive and Get My Boots Wet.
This was a jumping off point for Cindy and since then has co-written four other songs and is working on writing several of her own.
Cindy loves to sing! Some of her opportunities have been with her church praise band & choir. Cindy has performed several times for her Quilt Guilds quilting retreats. “(yes, I’m a quilter as well) Cindy says”
Cindy Larson occasionally sings at open mic and sings church solos. She sings a lot of karaoke so she sings all genres including classical and folk songs where she has been fortunate to have sung a couple of solos as well.
In 2014 Cindy was nominated female vocalist of the year. Even though she didn’t win she took the opportunity to attend the Nashville Universe Music Awards in 2015 and says it was an amazing time!!
Cindy loved seeing people she had voted for perform and was able to meet people that she has become friends with on some social sites.
She is married, has two children, a dog, 3 cats, a cockatiel and a full time job as a Professional Pet Groomer.
Cindy says, “when it seems like a zoo around here…. It probably really is!”
Her family is very supportive of her music, bless their hearts, as she also dabbles in playing her instruments; the piano, violin, guitar and banjo.
She would have to say the one she wants to learn the most would be the guitar as that is what she picks up when she is wanting to practice.
Cindy says, “we do go camping and I have always wanted to play around the fire and have sing alongs.”
Some other hobbies she enjoys are fishing, walking, reading and, as she mentioned before, quilting.
Cindy belongs to two quilting groups and has entered shows and won a couple ribbons but the thing she loves most about quilting is making gifts for others or donating them to fundraisers or to charities so they can distribute them to people in need.
It is funny how things come about when your life takes a turn in a different direction; in this case for Cindy, singing.
She was contacted by a distant relative who’s dream was to always be a singer and he was so proud of her.
He told her that she had two distant cousins; Song Bird of the South, Kate Smith and Rock-A-Billy artist Ray Smith.
“What can I say…. I LOVE TO SING!
I can’t thank the good Lord enough for blessing me with this opportunity and I hope you enjoy my music! and I have ALWAYS loved to sing! Genre doesn’t matter 🙂 Top favorite Genres are Country and Pop, though.” says Cindy
Cindy also did a self directed, produced and edited video last fall on her song “Wish You Were Here”.
Why sing? I have always felt singing can relieve stress or you can use it as an outlet for your feelings. We all can sing and if you love it, do it! If I can make one person smile or touch one person with a song then they have made my day. So I hope you find a spring in your step, a song in your heart and a smile on your lips. ~ Cindy Larson
NEW CD “Constant Is Change”
I would say her new CD is Eclectic Country with songs that are Old-Time, Country Rock, a bit of a Gospel feel on a couple and one is a bit bluesy making it entertaining for many musical tastes.
