In passing, you might think Cyn is just another pop artist. But that couldn’t be further from the truth. Cyn, born Cynthia Nabozny takes fun pop music and breathes new life into it thanks to her multi-genre influences. She’s out to create something new and different that will connect people deeply. It might seem like a daunting task, but she’s already carved out some promising music that will be sure to set her apart in the music scene.
This dream of making music that is unique and fun didn’t happen overnight. In fact, Cyn has been dabbling in music since her very early years of life. She says that her parents’ divorce was a big driver of her love for music.
“While my parents were going through their divorce, my mom was playing ‘Foolish Games’ by Jewel a lot in the car–I had to have been like three or four years old– but I just remember loving that song so much and I knew from then that I was gonna be a singer; that music was going to be a really big part of my life. I really don’t remember a time in my life where I wasn’t obsessed with singing.”
From that inspiration, Cyn went on to further develop her interest in music as well as her music abilities.
She started writing songs at nine, took piano lessons as a preteen and really got into making her own music in her late teen years.
Growing up, she had a lot of musical influences, specifically within the genre of Motown, thanks to her Detroit roots. “I just love Motown in general. It’s like my ‘getting ready’ music when I’m about to go out,” Cyn says. Make no mistake, she loves other genres as well — as a pop artist, she uses musical influences just about everywhere to craft her unique sound.
“I love Jewel and Sheryl Crow. I just feel like I tend to gravitate towards female songwriters, almost in an unfair way. I literally don’t listen to men. I love them but for other reasons [laughs]. I love Rosalita — she’s incredible, she’s my favorite right now. She makes me feel like I can be the leader of a badass girl gang and ride a Kawasaki.”
Recently featured in the Birds of Prey Soundtrack, Cyn’s new song “Lonely Gun” will be featured alongside some of the biggest names in music like Maisie Peters, Doja Cat, Lauren Jauregui, Halsey and more. The soundtrack will be available on February 7th via all streaming services.
