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.
