"Like Damien Jurado or Red House Painters, Mason mines delicate moments for emotional heft while stoking a haunted, dusky vibe. Potent stuff.” (Philadelphia Weekly). Cynthia G. Mason’s haunting voice and delicate guitar work create a mood not unlike that of her hometown Philadelphia itself— a mix of melancholy and hope. Philebrity called her music's edgy darkness "like a hypnotic sesh watching old Super 8 movies of people you don’t know." Time Out New York wrote that "her graceful, understated songs frequently awed clubs full of noisy chatterers into silence."
In June 2015, Cynthia released Cinematic Turn. Magnet Magazine wrote that the new album “is aptly titled,” that the “music is as vivid, evocative and narratively compelling as a film.”
