CINTHYA HUSSEY is a Brazilian singer, songwriter, actress & visual artist.
A few years ago Cinthya watched a TED Talk featuring Paula Fuga and her inspirational speech ‘Believe In Yourself’ on how we all need to pursue our dreams. At the end of her presentation Paula performs one of the songs on the ukulele that had brought her international recognition. Cinthya thought, “I could learn to play that instrument.” Not long after, Cinthya was given her own ukulele as a present and taught herself to play by learning cover versions of songs that she has loved since being a teenager. There are several videos of Cinthya on her own YouTube channel performing songs by The Pixies, The Cure, Depeche Mode, & Cigarettes After Sex as well as the ‘official’ video for Cinthya’s first single, released in July 2020, of her stunning reworking of Morrissey’s ‘Everyday Is Like Sunday’. Produced by Wayne Hussey, singer-guitarist in the British band The Mission, who has also produced Cinthya’s 2nd single, ‘My Heart Is A Ghost Town’, which is being released on December 11th.
‘My Heart Is A Ghost Town’ - a vision of 50s/60s pop meets the Cocteau Twins meets David Lynch - is the first song that Cinthya has written herself, originally a poem that she recently put to music, which will be included on her debut solo album planned for release in 2021.
Cinthya has also recently contributed vocals to a couple of remixes of the Beauty In Chaos anthem, ‘The Delicate Balance Of All Things’. The ‘Rapid Reiteration Mix’ is remixed by renowned producer Tim Palmer who’s credits include U2, Pearl Jam, Robert Plant, & David Bowie among many others, and the ‘Equipoise Mix’ is mixed by the Beauty In Chaos head honcho Michael Ciravolo in tandem with Grammy winning producer Michael Rozon. Cinthya’s unique paintings were also used as artwork for the albums ‘Out Of Chaos Comes’ and ‘Chaos Continues…’
In her acting career she appeared in the films "Singapore Sling" and "O Galã", among others.
In theater she was directed by the director and actor of the French group Théâtre du Soleil, Sebastien Brottet-Michel, in the award-winning show "The Siamese Sisters", in addition to having worked for several years with group Tapa.
She appeared in several TV series, including "O Negócios" and "9MM São Paulo".
During a break from work as an actress, because of the pandemic, Cinthya rediscovered her passion for painting.
Her identity as a painter emerges with canvases full of movement and colours contrasting with the darkness of the present times.
Her paintings will be featured in the next film that she will work on as an actress, directed by Brazilian filmmaker Guilherme de Almeida Prado.
She's planning exhibitions in Brazil and Europe when it is safe to return to social activities.
In addition to being a vegetarian, Cinthya is an avowed animal lover and one of her greatest ambitions in life is to have her own sanctuary to dedicate herself, in addition to the arts, to the rescue and care of animals in need.
