Sydney Wayser

Intimate and playful, placid and serene. Melancholy and dark, with occasional hints of passing sadness. This is the sound of Sydney Wayser, a twenty year-old singer-songwriter who with her French father and American mother has lived her life between Paris and Los Angeles. Sydney’s music is rife with tales and adventure; her music quite simply draws you into her world, delicately and candidly.

Her first album, entitled “Silent Parade”, showcases Sydney’s elegant blend of strings, piano, guitar and percussion, capturing enough of each without treading into overkill. It is the ode to simplicity and a nod to grace that truly defines the impact of Sydney’s writing and voice. You are at once enraptured and brought into her world where carousels’ turn with youthful exuberance, and love is questioned in lucid prose.

As influences go there is a defining quality of Sydney’s melodies that embraces depth, subtlety, dance, and playfulness, capturing elements of Nick Drake, and of Fiona Apple, Leonard Cohen and Elliot Smith. There’s a tranquil and frozen moment feel, reminiscent of Cat Power’s “You are Free” album. Each of these , and many others, have been woven into her soul and discarded; the sound is absorbed, pondered, and honored, and it is ultimately the goal of the artist to forge their own unique style. Sydney is well on her way.
