Cynthia Hamar is a Métis singer-songwriter, guitarist and pianist from Edmonton, Alberta.  She was born Dec 9, 1978 in Drayton Balley, Alberta and grew up in Entwistle.  As a small child Cynthia began writing songs and singing in church.  At the age of 15 she started playing the guitar and performing her own songs.  In high school, her now husband Phil, whom she grew up with, began writing music together and continues this practice to this day.  

Cynthia’s music has been described as melodic with spiritual overtones.  Her music initiates a state of calm and peace.  This therapeutic signature sound draws audiences like a magnet where she enjoys an active grassroots following as one of the top folk artists on Reverbnation for the Edmonton area.  

Cynthia’s first album “Fairytale” was nominated for a GMA in 2007 (for design).  Rather than sign a contract tying her to a grueling tour schedule, her church family and friends all pitched in and helped her buy her record outright. The remainder of the year was spent touring western Canada and playing local venues re-working her songs for her live performances.

Cynthia’s second album titled “” was released on July 15, 2010.  It is a compilation of songs she often plays solo in coffee shops and pubs.    In it she captures more of herself as an individual artist revealing the true essence of her being.  Cynthia’s lead single from “” is titled “Sweetheart” and is about love and life as are many of her songs.  This song is about her life and her ‘sweetheart’.  She reflects on love and sense of belonging and above all, happiness that surrounds her.  Cynthia states that this song was fun to make due to the true enduring nature of the song.  It is upbeat and tells such a delightful story.  It is a prime example when ‘less is more’; vocals and acoustic guitar – what an absolute delight to hear.  The crispness and the clarity of both vocals and acoustic guitar are enhanced and deliver such an impact and your heart just fills with joy.  

Cynthia has also opened for Toby from Australia and Oh my Darling out of Winnipeg.   Their bassist, MJ played with Ben Harper. For additional information please log onto
