|Cindy Bradley (USA) - trumpet |
Born and raised in Buffalo, NY, Cindy enjoyed a varied career in music starting from a very young age. Although her first instrument of choice was the piano, she made the fateful choice to pick up the trumpet in her 4th grade band program. She earned a bachelors degree in jazz studies from Ithaca College, and a masters degree in jazz trumpet performance from the New England Conservatory. After earning her degrees she immediately moved to the New York City area to begin to cut her musical teeth, playing and performing with her own unique sound. As a sideman Cindy has toured and recorded extensively with various funk, top 40, R&B, jazz-fusion,and straight ahead jazz groups performing everywhere from Emmy Awards parties to the Superbowl. Now the newest addition to the Trippin' N' Rhythm family, Cindy's label debut, entitled "Bloom," draws upon all aspects of her musicianship. The tracks boast of some of the Industry's funkiest and most gifted sidemen and soloists and was produced by Grammy awared winning producer Michael Broening. Says Trippin's VP Jeff Lunt "Cindy's openness, honesty and the sheer volume of talent that she brings to the table is absolutely infectious and refreshing and should do well to launch her into the smooth jazz stratosphere.". Not just another pretty face...this girl is for real!
