About Cydney

Versatile vocalist, polished performer and great guitarist!
Singing guitarist
Bristol
Public liability insurance of £10 million
Verified profile

I’m a full-time gigging musician / singer-songwriter, living on a narrowboat just outside of Bristol. I have been very lucky so far in my 11+ years in the music industry and have played all over the world. I’ve played gigs in New Zealand; Australia; Indonesia; and spent a few month in the French Alps as an in-house musician. I've also supported amazing musicians a long the way, including Dave Mcpherson, Sam Duckworth ('Get Cape Wear Cape Fly'), George Ezra, Donovan Frankenreiter and JP Cooper. I love playing at weddings, and have sang for many a bridal entrance and first dance. I've also been asked to learn personal songs for the happy couples and love to help make their day extra special. I play bars, restaurants, clubs and pubs as I have a huge range of cover songs in my repertoire.

Customer questions

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.

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?

Yes! I have my own guitar, however good notice of bringing my PA system 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.

Cydney played 2 sets for a small group of guests on one of our high-end events. She has such a fantastic voice, great presence and a huge repertoire, and we will definitely be booking her again. Thank you Cyd, great performance!

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.
