After ten years of studying classical violin Cygne found her voice writing and performing original songs in New York City. Upon graduation she embarked on her first solo European tour, fearlessly embracing the uncertain path of an independent musician. When she returned to the US she moved into her car and by summer she was performing on the Telluride Bluegrass and Rocky Mountain Folks Festival main stages.
In the 250,000 miles and 1000+ performances since, Cygne’s passion has translated to audiences from small clubs in the Czech Republic to large US & Swiss festivals. Like a friend who alternately comforts, entertains, and probes, she greets us with the ease and authenticity of someone who has spent a lifetime turning strangers into family.
Written in response to her experience in Europe during the refugee crisis and terrorist attacks of 2015 and 2016, Cygne’s new album Let It Breathe (February 3, 2017) provides hope and inspiration for challenging times. Cygne worked with producer Steve Rossiter at Axis Sound in New York City to create what has been unanimously declared their finest collaboration. Tune in as she enchants with thought-provoking songs and stories from the road.
