Cyndi Aarrestad

Biography

Cyndi AarrestadMy name is Cyndi Aarrestad, and I am a singer/songwriter, stay-at-home mom living on a farm near a small community in Northern Saskatchewan, Canada. I am married to Dennis, and together we are raising three precious children.

I grew up in a Christian family where singing and music were always a part of our home.
Both of my parents played multiple instruments, and all of us children learned to play several as well. We often sang at senior’s homes and other special events. At about age 14 I started writing songs on the piano, and later learned the guitar which is now what I usually play and compose with. Many of the songs I write are simple praise choruses and children’s songs, but I have also written numerous full-length songs with a style I would describe as a combination of praise/inspirational/country gospel. I have also written and performed many songs customized for special events, such as weddings, dedications, anniversaries, family reunions, Christmas programs, funerals, etc.. I have written over 1,000 songs, and have made 10 recordings in a friend’s home studio, with my latest three recorded at my home. I also had one CD recorded by the CBC for their radio show “Road Records” after being chosen in their contest, and recently had a demo chosen by a Nashville company to be featured in their demo showcase, which is being made available to publishers and performers throughout North America. I have had some radio exposure, and also am regularly part of an overseas broadcast, in affiliation with the church I attend.

My latest CD is a self-recorded release of choruses called Be A Light, in April, 2009.

I believe God has given me a gift to write music, and I am looking to share these songs with a wider audience. My desire is to honor & glorify Him by sharing what He has given to hopefully encourage and edify the body of Christ.
