Cynthia Hilts is a jazz pianist equally talented as a vocalist, composer and bandleader. Her jazz sextet, No Fiction, was a featured performer at the 2019 Tucson Jazz Festival, and her other ensembles have performed in festivals, concerts and clubs in Tucson, New York City, and internationally. She has released four records to strong acclaim. NYC Jazz Record described her most recent record, Lyric Fury, as “never short of either surprising twists or humor, always colorful and lively” (Scott Yanow). At the keys and while leading a band, Cynthia’s interpretations of the Great American Songbook and her original songs keep audiences enchanted and captivated.
