About Cydney

Singing guitarist
Verified profile
Cydney with a C

I have been very lucky so far in my life and music career and have played all over the world. I have busked in the streets of New Zealand, played gigs in Melbourne and Bali; and spent a few month in the French Alps playing as an in-house musician. I've supported amazing musicians a long the way too, including Dave Mcpherson, Sam Duckworth or 'Get Cape Wear Cape Fly', George Ezra, Donovan Frankenreiter and JP Cooper. My forte is love songs and getting the audience emotional. I love to play at weddings, and have sang brides down the aisle. I've also been asked to learn personal songs for the couples first dances and father daughter dances. I play bars, clubs and pubs on Friday/Saturday nights as well, as I have a large range of cover songs in my repertoire.

Customer questions

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

I always try to stay as flexible as possible, please let me know as soon as you can if any changes are made to an event.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

I don't usually provide any other music other than the set I sing and play on guitar. If you would like me to bring Ipod music, I could look into this for you.

How much time do you need to set up?

I usually only need about half an hour to set up my PA, so I usually arrive an hour before I play to have plenty of time.

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

My set list is varied and I can play whichever ones you would like that I have already. If you let me know in advance I can definitely do that.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

I have my own guitar, however I currently hire out a PA system for my gigs, which is usually fine, but a good amount of notice is preferable.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

If a song isn't included in my repertoire, there may be a chance I still know it. I can indeed learn a song for you, however this does come at an extra cost, if you take into consideration rehearsal time etc.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Honesty and openness

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Bestival, How the Light Gets In festival - Hay on Wye and London Heart of Clubs - Shoreditch LUV Camden Bush Hall

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Eva Cassidy, Paul Simon, Fleetwood Mac, Jeff Buckley

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

I have supported George Ezra, JP Cooper, Dave McPherson and also sang in Shepherds Bush at Bush Hall supporting Judie Tzuke on a friends' set. I also sang in the Theatre Royal Dury Lane and the Dominion Theatre when I was very young in a theatre group.

So, I’ve been mulling over this for quite some time.. we hired Cydney for our wedding and from the first minute to the last she was amazing.. speaking to me, arranging stuff, speaking to the venue and so on... I could go on and on and on, but... and here’s the down side which I was going to start with but it didn’t sound right. Cydney was so good myself and my now wife wish it hadn’t been our wedding so we could’ve spent more time listening to her. I’m generally not one for writing reviews because you always get some bad in with the good... but any doubts you might have please dismiss them. I would encourage anyone I know and those I don’t to hire Cydney on the proviso that I get an invite so I can properly get to enjoy her performance next time... Absolutely spot on, Many thanks x

I booked Cydney Brown to play at The Marine Tavern Underground Sessions on Sunday 17th Feb. I can honestly say Cydney wowed the audience with her performance. Cydney performed a mixture of covers and originals, all of which were sung and played to perfection . Cydney is a confident and very capable young artist , with a powerful yet soulful voice. I will undoubtedly be booking Cydney for future gigs , and strongly recommend other venues do the same.

Just wanted to say thanks for giving up your time on Sunday to play a set at our charity event, Whizz-Stock. You were amazing playing both covers and original songs. The emotion you put into your music allowed you to really connect with the crowd. The feedback we have received from people who attended has been extremely positive, even asking where you'll be playing next! Looking forward to watching your next gig. Thanks again.

I've worked with many amazing vocalists and Cydney is right up there at the top. She has so much integrity, genuine emotion and control engrained in her voice. The music flows out of here absolutely effortlessly and I always love watching the audiences awestruck faces as she plays. I'd recommend her time and time again.
