The Music Scene Blog, by Cynthia Orlando
Freelance writer and volunteer blogger Cynthia Orlando writes about local music, music that KRVM listeners may also want to listen to.
Cynthia grew up in southern California where both her parents were musicians. While attending forestry school in northern California's Humboldt County she began reviewing music for entertainment publication "Northcoast View," and began writing again in 2009 for Portland's KINK-FM and announcer Dave Scott's blog.
In addition to her writing for KRVM she also writes for another non-profit station, Portland Radio Project in Portland. She’s also written for the Portland Tribune, Salem Statesman Journal, and many other Oregon newspapers on topics of forestry, tree care, and native plants.
Besides music, Cynthia's other interests include travel, REIKI, birding, and backpacking. Her favorite travel fantasy is getting to the Glastonbury Festival to cover the many outstanding artists there.
