Seanda (vocals) is new to the scene. Her enthusiasm and instinctive approach to music help Luv Bomb bring their show to the next level.  Her contributions on background vocals and tambourine are the icing on our soul cake.  She is also one of the few single people in the band, so guys, watch out!Cynthia is the resident Canadian in the band, and is ecstatically thrilled to be bringing some Northern soul into Southwestern action. Don’t be surprised by her nice smile and petite frame – this gal’s got pipes! By day, she works at a Yoga studio, by night…well…you’ll have to get to know her a little better to find that out…eh?
