About Cynthia Douglas
Raised in Detroit, Michigan, the cradle of ‘feel good’ music, Cynthia began singing at an early age, honing her vocal gifts in the church. By age eighteen, Cynthia had already made her first professional appearance before an audience of 10,000 at the Danny Thomas, St. Jude Charities Fundraiser. As her career progressed, she joined the singing group “Brandye” and completed a US tour with Peabo Bryson.
Cynthia has lent her “velvet” pipes to more than 20 gold and platinum albums with artists such as Peabo Bryson, Bob Seger, George Clinton, The Dramatics, Johnnie Taylor, Millie Jackson, Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis. Cynthia also enjoyed the privilege of working with renowned producers Don Davis and Jerry Wexler. In addition to lending her vocal talents to recorded albums, Cynthia has over 2,000 studio recordings to her credit including radio and television jingles.
Cynthia’s vocal range spans a multitude of music styles including Jazz, R&B, Pop, Blues and Gospel. Cynthia has performed as the featured artist at the St. Mathews Gospel Fundraiser in Detroit, at The Nuggett in Sparks, Nevada and holds the distinction of being the only artist to sell out the Artiz jazz club in Folsom, which hosted the likes of Joyce Cooling and Fattburger. Cynthia currently resides in Sacramento, California; is a regular performer at local venues and has just released her second album, Dreaming in Burgundy.
Cynthia’s inspiration for her performances comes from her passion for music and the belief that good music comes from the heart and soul. This may explain her accolade as the 2005 Sounds of Soul’s Best Female Jazz Performer. Cynthia is truly a class act and her music speaks for itself.
