Playing beautiful hand drums with his Latin influence, his island and salsa inspiration beats the heart of the band. During the day, our bilingual drummer works in social services.
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...

Playing keyboards and guitar for longer than he can remember, Joe played ten years with UnaRose, an Irish band. He has sung with the Collegium Musicum at Dickinson College and played recorders in Renaissance consorts. He is transitioning to writing musical theatre as he retires from his antique keyboard restoration business. Puffins is by far the most fun of any ensemble he has played with.
