Cydney Halpin

Music!  It’s always been about the music!

Perhaps better known as a cabaret singer, Cydney has played in many of the legendary cabaret rooms coast to coast.

Born in Southern California, Cydney started singing and playing instruments by the age of 3, “There was always music in our house!  Either live music - with impromptu jams - or music on the radio or stereo.”  Musical expression was encouraged and nurtured and she grew up immersed in the arts - music, theater and dance. 

With a musical career that has been a bit more ‘showgirl’, Cydney was thrilled when dear friend, and noted jazz bassist, Martin Pizzarelli approached her a few years ago to put a show together with Great American Songbook material “with a twist”!  She was over-the-moon when Martin got his father, the legendary jazz guitarist, Bucky Pizzarelli to join the project.  It was after that collaboration that Bucky enthused, “Cyd, we really should record these tunes – you need a CD!”  Thus Swingin’ Sentimental was born.

“I adore performing with ‘the boys’ and am thrilled to be debuting this Pizzarelli inspired CD Swingin’ Sentimental in New York at Lucas!!”
