Ep 53: Living your passion through pleasure w/ Cindy Rainne

Cindy_Episode 53_template-01.jpg

I am so excited for you to meet this incredible woman and phenomenal musician. We met in 2014 and I have been working with her ever since. On this episode, we speak to her about how committing to her own empowerment and pleasure has created a life of her dreams.

Official Bio: Cindy Rainne is a classically trained vocalist and a classical pianist who comes from a family of Trinidadian descent. She's built a robust profile through singing in front of sold-out crowds, earning awards for musical theater performances, and garnered an engaged following on YouTube. Cindy calls her music “clearwater soul,” it’s an elixir of raw truths and organic instrumentation, and its earthy purity nourishes the soul. Within this stream of expression are elements of classical music, jazz, pop, Caribbean rhythms, opera, gospel, soul, and R&B. Cindy’s lyrics are sassy and sensitive, she writes from her own redemptive journey of reclaiming her dignity and identity from the shackles of a painfully complex childhood. Now, she steps into the light with The Mask, a masterful debut EP that promotes self-love and self-expression. You can find her at Cindyrainne.com @cindyrainne
