CD Review:

From her forthcoming LD, The Night Turned To Song, San Francisco Bay Areas based singer/songwriter Cyndi Harvell releases Photographs, a song that I had the pleasure of first hearing while moderating a panel at a music conference in Emeryville.

We listened to 20 songs that day and Cyndi’s song, the highly melodic "Photographs," was hands down, the best and the clear audience favorite with its quick start, well-produced but organic musical backdrop, and tight lyrical and vocal composition. “Photographs” is an instant radio hit…it just needs airplay.

While I’m compelled to compare Cyndi to her contemporary colleagues such as Tori Amos, Michelle Branch, Paramore, or even Katy Perry, it would be more accurate to reference her with Joni Mitchell – a singer with extraordinary depth and songwriting talent that has lasted for decades. Cyndi has the potential to be that kind of artist.
