August 18, 2017 - Release day of a collection of my trance tracks ...  all compiled in one album: “LIFE WON'T LET US FALL”. Such a WONDERFUL and VERY SPECIAL DAY. I'm very proud of this album. Each track is a piece of me.Wishing everyone all the best, always.

Singer / songwriter / performer, CYNTHIA HALL, has been gracing stages and capturing audiences with her warm, sensuous vocals and endearing stage presence for decades primarily in Canada, but also in Australia, The Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, USA.  Having moved to Metro Vancouver, Canada from The Netherlands at the age of 9, the bulk of her music influences and developments are from a North American perspective.  All kinds of rock, soul and pop styles have been part of Cynthia’s vocal exploration, having performed these styles in hundreds of shows in numerous bands.  One of her most well-known projects is SAM’S FALLING, a duo with producer/multi-instrumentalist/composer Pim Bouwens.  Sam’s Falling has released 3 well-received CDs of its own brand of soft-alternative music, which found its way on various Canadian radio stations including Canada’s national broadcasting station, CBC Radio.  Sam’s Falling has performed extensively in western Canada and Europe.

Being of Dutch-Indonesian descent, and having lived in Canada for almost all of her life, Cynthia felt fortunate to have been innately influenced by Asian, European and North American cultures.  These influences have had a profound impact on her creativity and awareness, which in turn profoundly impacted her artistic expression.

Making The Netherlands home in 2010, Cynthia continued to enjoy a vibrant music career, in the form of trance music, new Sam’s Falling material, and other music explorations and performances.

REVIEW: Matt Bukovski & Cynthia Hall - Slave To Doubt on Amsterdam Trance Records



12 March 2015: Dimitri Kechagias of Flux BpmOnline

Cynthia Hall appears with her delicate voice that sounds more like mother nature or any other mother figure that warns us about falling into the trap of doubting everything and leaving a life which we will feel lonely and isolated as we will Doubt anything and everything around us. The climax is stunning with massive euphoric synths that give you goosebumps .........

It’s time switch it up, speed up the tempo, blast the speakers and pump the bass because we’re going trancy with Matt Bukovski & Cynthia Hall in their stomper of a tune Slave To Doubt.

The climax is full on and hands in the air as you expected to be from the gifted hands of Las Salinas.

REVIEW: A.R.D.I & Cynthia Hall - "Sunflowers" out on Molekular Sounds



19 August 2014: Catch that Beat

Just as the name suggests, Sunflowers is a stunning track that combines free-flowing uplifting trance vibes with vocals from Cynthia Hall that will have the hairs on the back of your neck standing tall. The breakdown is chilling but just as you'd imagine the melody and drop are both innervating and escalating bringing its listeners to a heightened state of mind. Definitely one of our favourite originals from this Polish producer, A.R.D.I. has brought it to a whole new level.

A.R.D.I. & Cynthia Hall combine their art for the magnificent uplifting trance anthem Sunflowers that is released on Molekular Sounds part of Raz Nitzan Music. We deal here with superb solid composition with straight to the point arrangement that respects the codes and conventions of uplifting trance style with tough pounding grooves, driving basslines and of course chord progression that make you wanna fly straight away along with wide variety of emotional synths that appear to raise our consciousness along with Cynthia Hall's heartfelt performance that sounds so warm, tender and emotional that is impossible not to fell in love with her, identify with the inspiring words she sings and share with her the spirituality that this track lights to the world. The breakdown is another magical dreamy moment that is chilling ........

6 August 2014: Andrew Quigley of YourEDM

But lo and behold, A.R.D.I. has once again floored us with his upcoming, Pure Trance masterpiece entitled Sunflowers, which features the incredible vocals of Cynthia Hall. Instantly from the get go, A.R.D.I. smoothly establishes the tone of the piece by perfectly pairing down each element of the track so that the vocals can clearly shine through, as faint whispers of 2003 Trance echoes throughout the entire soundscape. As the lyrics, “to keep us warm when the light goes out“, are beautifully sung by Cynthia Hall, the feeling of warmth and harmony naturally connects with the music as crisp percussion, sweeping pads and subtle plucks add another layer of beauty on top of the already outstanding bass and kickdrum foundation. The breakdown’s communication between the instrumental and the vocals is perfectly balanced as he intuitively allows the wonderful arrangement of pads to express their elegance without any distraction. (which also .......

REVIEW: : Richard Durand & Cynthia Hall – “Shield of Faith” out on RNM 



14 May 2014: Dimitri Kechagias of Flux BpmOnline

Now Richard Durand stops by at Raz Nitzan Music for his exceptional vocal trance anthem Shield Of Faith. As always it is offered in vocal and dub mix for those who would like to enjoy just only the nice grooves and uplifting vibes.The  original vocal  mix is classic big room Dutch trance sound that is perfect for large venues and summer festivals. It is such a beautiful blissful track with bouncy kicks, driving energetic basslines, very strong emotional melodies and of course one of the most fragile voices I ever heard on vocal trance tracks.
