About Syd

A singer, songwriter, and producer working in a variety of pop and folks styles, Syd was born Erin Sidney in Burlington, Vermont, where he started out first as a drummer before picking up the guitar at the age of 15. He began posting his music online and, gaining a fan base through his efforts, he moved to Boston and met drummer Jason Gardner while attending college. They decided to work together, and the two began recording Week Days, Weak Knees in Gardner's apartment. Self-released, the record sold respectably and Syd began to up his performance schedule to promote the album. Many of his live performance recordings were traded by fans, which in turn helped spread his music even further. With his music career gathering momentum, Syd released his sophomore album, Fault Lines, in 2004, followed by The Way We Found It in 2007 and the Upswing EP in 2009. Syd has also been active as a producer and drummer, contributing to albums by Mia Dyson as well as performing and recording with Hotels & Highways, the Pullmen, and Radio Skies. In 2016, following a seven-year gap, Syd began issuing songs, one at a time, which eventually culminated in the 2017 full-length album, Easy Magic. ~ Bradley Torreano
