YOGA FIRST. MUSIC ALWAYS

There is a new artist in town that is force to be reckoned with. You may not know her yet, but get ready. West Texas-born Sydney Wright has been writing songs for over a decade, and while her huge voice often gets her compared to pop darlings like Florence and the Machine and Sara Bareilles, there’s a darker, more experimental edge to her work. Drawing heavily from hip-hop rhythms, with loops of piano, guitar, beatbox and doo-wops, Wright creates a sonically complex, live-looping, one-woman show. Even listening to just one song off her new debut album, her raw artistry, vulnerability and songwriting prowess speaks volumes.
