Almost 2 decades of life as a glass artist (Magic Moonshadows Stained Glass) Cynthia was still writing songs and childrens' stories, singing when time allowed. Inspired by the moonlit fires and dancing drum circles enjoyed at art and music festivals, Cynthias' whimsical chants and soulful songs bloomed when collaborating with several talented musicians...Sofeya and the Puffins came to be. She grew up singing gospel in church, playing the piano, and singing solos in an award winning high school choir. She performed on local radio in elementary school, and cultivated her vocal range of 3+ octaves singing opera in college. Writing songs began when she was gifted her first guitar as a mom of three, then came the ukellele... 

Sofeya and the Puffins combine singer/songwriter lyrical mojo, soulful harmonies, with unusual instrumentation. The strings of the uke, guitar bloom genres ranging from gypsy punk rock, swinging blues, world beat ballads, indie folk, and contemporary spiritual. Projects so far:

CLOWNS OF THE SEA 2014 June

GENETIC CONFETTI 2015 June
