Cindy-Leigh is a dynamic and talented musician, singer and songwriter who aims to see lives touched through her music. And touched you will be - not just by her songs but also by her inspiring passion, her great sense of purpose, and her heart.
In her early 20's, Cindy-Leigh pushes the traditional boundaries of the music world, bringing to it a fresh, vibrant, strong and intensely beautiful sound. Cindy-Leigh describes her style as contemporary pop with a gospel feel.
Her voice can be at once mellow and then so powerful, with precision projection and pitch. No wonder she was a backing vocalist for Vanessa Amorosi, Keith Urban, Human Nature, Deblah Morgan and more at the Goodwill Games Opening. She has toured Fiji, was a soloist at the opening of Roma Street Park Lands in Brisbane and soloist at the recent Christmas Spectacular, Gold Coast.
You may be surprised that Cindy-Leigh started out as an instrumentalist and can play guitar, piano, bass and percussion instruments. But uniquely, she acknowledges drums as the only instrument she plays seriously. Never having had lessons, Cindy-Leigh is self-taught, acquiring her skills by observing other drummers. Her first drumming influence was her father, David. Cindy-Leigh used to fall asleep in front of the bass drum while he was playing. She laughingly suggests that "drumming was literally beaten into her."
She released her first EP "Air That I Breathe" in 2002 to critical acclaim, but we waited until the full album "Heaven's Eyes" was ready - and no one will be dissapointed.
An important aspect of singing/songwriting for Cindy-Leigh is keeping her music authentic and not computer generated. This realness creates an impact on each listener. She is straight down the line and dislikes falseness in any form. "You're All I Need" is one of Cindy-Leigh's favourite songs because "we live in a world that is full of emptiness and falseness - things I don't want to have in my life. I want to be real."
Cindy-Leigh is not scared to take risks. This is obvious in her choice to be a singer, songwriter, composer and performer of her own songs. Even as a child, Cindy-Leigh's parents noted that she was very determined and had a mind of her own. They describe her as focused and committed: knowing what she wants and tenaciously going after it.
