Cyber is no stranger to the Montreal music scene. She started singing as the lead soloist in a renown gospel choir, through which she got the opportunity to travel the world. She later made her transition from gospel to pop music.
She gained scene experience by sharing the stage with multiple successful artists as a back vocalist, and after going through a difficult break-up, she emancipated herself in finding her own voice.
Through the process of making her first album, Cyber is now able to introduce herself as her most authentic and balanced self.
CYBER performs on Saturday May 5th at General Assembly, 5A Fairmont Ave.
