Cyndi CainThe Festival Tent, Halifax NS July 13
Halifax's own neo-soul diva Cyndi Cain performed a flawless set of R&B tunes to a sold-out Friday night crowd. Recently awarded the Galaxie Rising Star Award, it was easy to understand why some are labelling this one-time Motown lounge singer the next Sharon Jones. Strutting across the stage in a curvaceous gold dress and towering heels, the young artist captured the audience's attention with her booming voice and spunky stage presence. Born into a religious family, the spiritual hometown singer-songwriter delivered a gospel inflected set that resembled a young Aretha Franklin, leaving those in attendance wondering why the sultry crooner hasn't become a household name yet.
