Tonia Cianciulli Gives Voice To A Thousand Cries

The Toronto singer-songwriter paints a beautiful picture of life's hardships.

Tonia Cianciulli speaks from the heart in her new single and video Thousand Cries — showcasing today on Tinnitist.

On her latest release, the Newfoundland-born, Toronto-based singer and songwriter paints a beautiful yet realistic picture of life’s ups and downs as she moves through the world the best she can while dealing with painful and emotional struggles. The lyrics of the song explore the pain and suffering of with anxiety and depression. Cianciulli’s vocal delivery is raw and vibrant, capturing the heart-wrenching pain of grief and the longing to find closure.

“I originally wrote Thousand Cries in 2013 as a song to my inner child and present self,” she says. “It was written to address waves of anxiety and depression I’ve experienced over the course of my life.”

Taken from her forthcoming album Love Me Till I’m Me Again, Thousand Cries showcases Cianciulli’s vocal range and emotional power in its poetic lyrics:

“Her heart’s lost despite a thousand friends.
Oh what will it take this time?
She’s hearing a pounding sigh.
Oh what will it take this time?

The final lines of the song — “Her soul will still show the way, it’s leading her, she will stay” — depict the difficulties and challenges she faces, yet her determination to keep moving forward. She is relying on her inner strength and resilience to guide her through the storm and is determined to find a way to heal and overcome her pain.

“Don’t be afraid to reach out to family and friends to ask for help, or to simply let them know you need a listening ear while you unload some of the chaos in your mind,” Cianciulli advises. “These conversations are so critical to have because we are not alone. We don’t have to muscle through life.”
