SYDNEY WRIGHT

BIO

Whether she’s developing complex beats through loop pedals or crooning to a soulful funk ballad, [Sydney Wright] will rock the house like no other. - The Austinot

Sydney Wright’s debut full-length amounts to a greatest-hits-so-far for the Austin pop polymath, whose lush, layered compositions are hallmarked by slow-burning verses erupting into gargantuan hooks. - Kevin Curtin, Austin Chronicle

Her presence makes you feel immediately at home, and her music makes you feel as if it was written just for you. - Leigh Kettle, Shuffle Online

Sydney Wright has been writing songs for over a decade. While her huge voice often gets her compared to pop darlings like Sara Bareilles, there’s a darker, more experimental edge to her work. Drawing heavily from polyrhythms, with loops of piano, guitar, beatbox, and doo-wops, Wright creates a sonically complex, live-looping, one-woman show all her own.

With bandmates, performances can range from duo to quartet performing an amalgamation of live-loops and full arrangements that allude her studio-produced releases.

When she's not on stage, Wright is behind the console mixing performances as a live sound engineer. Her mastery of the physics of sound is apparent in her self-production onstage and in the studio.
