Son and Cynic
Son and Cynic is an alternative Indie band with pop and experimental tendencies from Denver, CO Son and Cynic began as a recording project between Brian Obernesser and Cayla Shortley. The band released their 7-track Debut EP "Wherever I Am" on 5.19.17. Their current lineup is
Cayla Shortley - Vocals
Brian Obernesser - Guitar
Evan Jorrisen - Guitar
Corbin Brooks - Bass
Sam Kok - Drums

“The fact that it’s done so seamlessly and in certain spots is even downright irresistible and is what makes Wherever I Am such a pleasure to listen to.”
-Divide and Conquer Music Reviews

“Their self-recorded sound harks back to the alt-rock of the late 90’s, but beelines in on the good bits; from the impassioned vocals of Garbage, to the twanging guitars of the Smashing Pumpkins. The band have suggested the track is inspired by, “night-driving the winding mountain roads of Colorado”, and you can almost feel the air rushing through the open-window, as the song roars round the narrow paths and stunning vistas. Put aside the cynicism, this is a hugely impressive beginning.”

On February 25th, 2017, we released our debut EP under our band name. We wanted to share a little about what our band name means. We're about heartfelt songs, examining everything in life carefully. Our name kind of came from that. The idea that we need to hold fast to that which is good, & that life is not always easy. I write songs about love, friendship, depression, family, the past, & the future. Pretty much anything that comes to mind. What's funny is I'm pretty sure the real story of how we got our band name has to do with "Holdfast" was the "Word of the Day." I had kept a list of band name ideas in my iPhone notes, & most of them came from those "Words of the Day." I admired the thought of "Holdfast" being one word, but it's meaning being in a verbal sense. Holding fast to each other is what we- as brothers - have done, & it’s what we all will continue to do through this life.
