Miss Cindy Hoten is a unique and versatile performer whose style of music has clearly been shaped by the unconventional music selection she was exposed to as a child, from her upbringing travelling around the UK and later around the world.
Cindy’s Influences count as Patsy Cline, Aretha Franklin, Hed Kandi, Gwen Stefani, Dolly Parton, Etta James to name a few, and started singing at the tender age of 8 when she used to stand on a table to sing at family christenings.
In recent years Cindy has been dabbling with a mix of styles, including Jazz / Swing / Vintage / Rockabilly with a few Surprises thrown in creating her own unique and quirky style that people have come to recognise. As you can imagine, Cindy’s vocal range, ability and style is vast to say the least.
Cindy announced to her teacher she would be singing for the whole school one day during assembly, at 5 years old (How much is that Doggy in the window). Aged 8 years old she used to stand on a table to sing at family christenings, where Singing was a regular form of entertainment. Being the eldest of 7, and having dozens of cousins, there was plenty of opportunity to perform.
Having a Singer for a Father certainly had an impact, and despite her fathers advice to head for “a wealthier more settled career” when her father handed down a PA System, there was no looking back.
Cindy’s Grandfather, Auntie and Sister are also professional singers.
Every Performance by Miss Cindy Hoten is an experience in it's self,
