About Cyndi Cain:
Cyndi Cain’s got the kind of voice that’s capable of giving you goosebumps on the most sweltering of summer nights. It’s big, it’s booming and it’s coming from an utterly genuine place. The Halifax-based soul singer got her start belting out gospel songs at church, studying musical theatre at Toronto’s Sheridan College and taking the show on the road to Club Med resorts where she treated vacationers to show tunes and Motown hits. Since returning to Canada, she’s been on a whirlwind of great stages, sharing the stage with Michael Buble, Aretha Franklin, Lauryn Hill, Sharon Jones, Naturally 7, Charles Bradley and has performed for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Arguably the east coast powerhouse of soul, Cain’s taken home the Galaxie Rising Star Award, Music NS Award for Best R&B, ANSMA’s Artist of the Year and won the 2020 Pioneer Award. Cyndi has toured the UK and brought audiences to their feet! Cyndi Cain, The Soul Duchess, is a party-starter, a tear-jerker and a jaw-dropper with stage presence that’s sincerely something else. If you haven’t seen Canada’s Soul Duchess yet, get ready to feel it!
