Sydney Fay is an up-and-coming singer-songwriter from Brooklyn, New York. She got her start as a piano player at a young age, and quickly moved into singing and songwriting. Soon Sydney found that writing and playing music were are passions, and dedicates all of her time to doing so at the piano or with her guitar.
Upon arrival to Northeastern University, Sydney entered school as an Environmental Studies major, something else she was very interested in, presuming that going to school for music wasn't the best idea. It took her two years to realize that music was what she really wanted to be doing, all the time, and switched to being a student in the Music Industry program last year.
During her sophomore year, Sydney began writing the songs that would eventually be self-released as part of her debut EP, You Got Me, in February of 2019, when she first officially broke into the music scene. These three songs are a period piece, a very intimate glimpse into moments of her life. This EP fortunately gained the help of several amazing professionals, including Jim Anderson and Doug Bielmeier of Northeastern University.
This past month, Sydney released her first single song, entitled "Time.," with Citizens' Loft Records. Though her first EP only consisted of herself singing accompanied by either guitar or piano (with one trumpet feature), this newest song featured a full-band performance: vocals, piano, bass, drums, and saxophone. Honing her jazzy influences, this groovy track speaks of heartbreak and the loneliness that comes with going through the motions of life.
Sydney is set to release another single and a full-length album sometime in the coming months. For now, she is playing shows throughout New York City where she lives, and Boston, where she goes to school.
