Primary Instrument: Vocalist

Born: June 21, 1963    

Cynthia Kaay Bennett is an Ohio native with a strong background as a musician as well as singer. In addition to playing clubs in the Midwest for the past 8 years, earlier in her career she toured in various states across the country for over 6 years, including a tour with the U.S. Continental Army Jazz Band. In her travels, she has performed at venues such as the Savannah Jazz Festival, French Lick Springs Jazz Festival & gala big band events at the Opryland Hotel. . She receives great reviews from musicians, club owners, radio personalities, jazz critics, and her audiences. Her 1st two jazz CDs, “Wish I Knew” and “That’s the Spirit” have received airplay on over 50 radio stations all over the U.S., Canada, and Europe.

”Wish I Knew” has a strong blues flair. The album is full of amazing vocals and incredible musicianship. I was captivated by Cynthia's sensitive interpretation of “Jones For You”, “Thinkin' 'Bout You”, “Getting What I Deserve” and the hauntingly beautiful “A Lover Is Forever”. Having reviewed Cynthia's debut album Wish I Knew a couple of years ago, I'm not surprised that this release (That’s the Spirit) is nothing less than great. Ms. Bennett's approach to this eclectic mix can be best described as warm and classy. Her personal arrangement of the venerable Silent Night is stunning. Bennett is able to scat in fine fashion and she swings out in style… Richard Bourcier, Jazz Critic, JazzReview.com

Cynthia Kaay Bennett appears to be able to find the right approach whatever type of song she chooses. She has a marvelous singing voice and uses it to great effect; she certainly deserves greater exposure. There are lesser singers about who are getting a lot of attention and she should be up there amongst them. Roy Booth Jazz Views, UK
