Canadian singer/songwriter Syd Carter West knew music was her passion when she sang her first tune at the age of two, humming to music on the radio such as Deana Carter (her first favourite song being Strawberry Wine), Shania Twain, Dixie Chicks, Amanda Marshall and more.
Syd started vocal training at the age of
seven and began to write her own lyrics and melodies shortly
after. After years of dedication to her
vocal training, Syd started integrating her powerful and fierce
vocals into Country/Rock music, this inspired Syd to master
the free-spirited techniques of Classic Rock with a fearless
vocal range and daring stage presence, but still channeling emotive
storytelling and down to earth roots of Country.
When one listens to Syd’s music, you will be
struck by her hauntingly beautiful and rich voice. Her ability to play and
embellish with her wide vocal range allows Syd’s lyrics to
have more meaning. Syd writes with deep emotion, giving voice
to those feelings that most of us have a difficult time expressing.
Syd wants to motivate listeners to
unapologetically embrace who they are meant to be through the music
and performances that she provides. Now releasing Country music
videos and new songs, Syd is honing into her craft of becoming one of
British Columbia’s few Country artists.
