ROCK: Modern Rock, POP: Today''s Top 40
Cynix, even though a fairly recent newcomer to the alternative/modern rock music scene, has quickly established itself as one of the most sought-after musical acts in its genre. Cynix''s music, which is written, arranged and produced by the group in a collaborative effort, has introduced an addictive fusion of sound that has been very well received: modern rockpop/ electronica. The unique seductive fusion draws on influences from several rhythmical genres, most notably, jazz, creating music like nothing you have ever heard. Cynix is bringing audiences what they are hungry for: a connection and a change.
Probably due to the fact that this off-beat crew with their off-stage antics are anything but newcomers to the music industry themselves, Cynix is bringing their unique sound to audiences worldwide. Built from the ashes of a few of NYC''s most popular bands gone wrong, Cynix has a story that would rival any Oscar-winning screenplay. It is a tale filled with deception, cheating, theft, violence, tragedy, and the determination to tell it like it is.
The addictively unique sound coupled with their mind-blowing, and often times, bizarre stage presence is sure to keep those venues packed. With over 10,000 CDs sold independently, a website growing in popularity, and a rapidly growing fan base, Cynix is ready to bring music back where it belongs- to a state of creativity - that still reaches audiences like nothing else. The group is led by vocalist Karen Xerri, keyboardist/guitarist Mark Paradiso, and drummer Rick Donato.
Cynix members have achieved international exposure in their current project as well as numerous former projects. Notable highlights include:
* Songs co-written by Paradiso have been heard on a few big-stuff tv programs and on over 370 college radio stations, regularly making Top 20 Playlists.
* Media exposure has ranged from Maxim to The Clear Channel''s New Music Network.
* Snatching 1st place in the International John Lennon Songwriting Competition
* Becoming a Top 10 Finalist in MTV''s Band Warfare Nationwide Unsigned Band Search.
Cynix''s members have brought their mind-blowing music to every corner of the world- from Europe''s live music venues to Cynix''s native NYC to the band''s headquarters in Los Angeles. After all this, they have managed to stay true to their unique sound, brutally honest lyrics, and above all...the music.

Rave reviews for Cynix''s Dirty Laundry:
Clear Channel''s NMN
"a kick-ass band with a sexy, powerful sound like nothing this writer has ever heard....The mix is a perfect fusion of electronica, modern/alternative, and rockpop with slight influences drawn on jazz and bossa-nova. The result is a sexy pumping groove with some really catchy hooks.... "
"... Xerri''s unique vocal style is quite impressive... this little vixen produces an amazingly powerful sound that is controlled and hauntingly seductive...lyrics are filled with cunning witticisms and more than a small dose of rage. The marriage of music and lyrics will leave you more than impressed.
"[Dirty Laundry] has all the makings of a pop culture hit and still manages to bring something new to the table."
"What we have stumbled upon here is truly a unique sound which will appeal to anyone who knows good music when they hear it.... "
If you like Portishead, No Doubt, Coldplay, Garbage, Patti Smith, Tori Amos, or Evanescence, check this new band out...they are about to hit it big with this masterpiece.
Meet the crazy kids of CYNIX:
Karen Xerri (vocals, production, drum programming)
Karen has toured the world singing, dancing, and performing acts far too devious for print. She is a pro when it comes to verbal acrobatics, but you would never know it considering her lewd manners. This little vixen is a published writer, composer and lyricist who hails from NYC. She has an unhealthy obsession with Nabokov''s Lolita and Miles Davis.
Mark Paradiso (guitar, piano, keyboard, synths, drum programming, bass, production)
After mastering 14 instruments and performing and writing music in numerous genres, Mark graduated high school. Music co-written and performed by Paradiso in former projects has been heard on numerous tv and radio programs, including MTV''s Band Warfare Nation Unsigned Band Search. He has taken first prize in numerous contests including the International John Lennon Songwriting Competition. Mark heads Cynix''s production.
Rick Donato (Drums)
Rick has been the backbone of quite a few popular nyc bands. Rick has his roots in jazz and has branched out in almost every genre. Rick has been hailed "a machine" in his capacity as a drummer and isn''t too shabby on the composition end of things either. A trained pro, Rick has a fear of public restrooms.
