Daily Dose: Cyndi Cresswell Cook – Cloud
Cyndi Cresswell Cook grew up in a quaint little seaside town. Her father worked and her mother stayed home and baked. Despite this idyllic upbringing, thankfully, she managed to become the bent and warped person that she is today. In fact, she almost felt sorry for her bewildered parents, as they watched their daughter roar, scream, and shimmy her way through childhood.
Cyndi started out as a comedienne in Boston. Some of her jokes have been published in the Judy Brown series, She’s So Funny and Mom, this jokes for you. Soon, though, feeling the need to be even more expressive, she put her energy towards writing songs. Her first song was Chance of Rain and was soon followed by others. Her songs are in a variety of genres: jazz, alternate rock, 50’s rock, pop, country, and other genres that are uniquely her own.
Cyndi caught a break when she won the January 2016 Academia Music Award for Cloud, the video Cloud, the Zombie Wonderland video, and second place for Placebo Effect. Another break came when her song, Zombie Wonderland, was picked up by Alan Cross for his 2015 Christmas addition of his popular syndicated radio show, The Ongoing History of New Music ( episode 739). Afterwards, Alan Cross became her informal mentor. She has been on his web-site three times so far with her songs: Meds, Zombie Wonderland, and Pre-Op Mama in Striped Pajamas.
