With the release of her second album, Beautiful Soul, Cynthia Layne is poised for national attention.
This Indianapolis-based artist has made a name for herself on the live scene with sizzling R&B, soul and jazz vocals. "...it does not get any classier than the beautiful Cynthia," said Nora Spitznogle, Broad Ripple Gazette.
Reaching her audience with a mixture of styles is the calling card for this vocalist, but Beautiful Soul brought her back to R&B. "I listen to a lot of music styles and grew up on R&B music," said Layne. "I wanted to do an R&B album to reach more audiences and listeners. I think there is a little something for everyone on the album. For example, "All I Need" has a more singer/songwriter vibe; "I Can't Change You" is more jazz; "Be You" is more neo-soulish and "Free Yourself" is plain old school funk."
