From picking peas and listening to the honeyed voice of Bobbi Gentry blaring from her daddy's truck radio, to singing in upscale venues and honky tonks throughout the United States, to jamming after-hours in clubs on various continents, Cyndie Hasty's wandering spirit is captured on two critically acclaimed albums, Alabama Blues and Temptation.
Raised in the South and now living in New York City, where she regularly performs and records, Cyndie Hasty was drawn to music at an early age. Her father picked country licks on a vintage 1955 Les Paul while the family sang at church functions and rendered tunes such as "Wabash Cannonball" and "I'll Fly Away" or anything by Hank, Sr.
Winning All-State singing competitions and taking great pride in the fact that she was the only female tenor in her school glee club, Cyndie's songs, as music critic Stephanie Ramp notes "cryptically weave in and out of autobiography and fiction...giving you a peeping-Tom glimpse at her Southern origins and dazzles with an array of characters whose stories intertwine with down-home secrecy. Each of her songs take you on a road trip through someone's history until ultimately, you feel like it's part of your own."
