This Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter/producer helped cultivate the nu-soul scene in that city more than ten years ago, a scene which now easily boasts some of the most progressive artists of that genre to date, some of whom came directly from Sy’s own band line-ups. With 3 albums, 2 EPs, 1 greatest hits collection, and a live DVD already under her belt, Sy is set to release her fourth studio project ‚ Fast And Curious‚ in 2012. Her past projects usually include contributions from numerous producers, including James Poyser, Ali Shaheed Muhammad, Dre King, Nicolay, and Ty Macklin. With Fast And Curious‚ the entire production is aptly handled by jazz musician, electronic remixer, and deejay Mark de Clive-Lowe (aka MdCL). Many fans are aware of Sy’s previous work providing supporting vocals for the likes of Meshell NdegeOcello, Usher, Whitney Houston, Chaka Khan, Macy Gray, The Rickey Minor Band (as seen on American Idol for six seasons), and quite notably, Chris Botti (her performance of‚ Look Of Love‚ on his Grammy-nominated live DVD, but Sy continues to gain new fans in the trenches of the underground scene touring with acts like The Foreign Exchange and Orgone. And even more recently, she’s teamed up with Sheila E. and the Escovedo Family, providing them with her well-known supportive vocals and vibrant energy. Sy has been a featured guest and/or co-star on The Monique Show, The Tonight Show, DC’s Fox Morning News, Chicago’s WGN Midday Show, and even on CBS’ HowI Met Your Mother. She was a special guest performer at Constitution Hall for the Horatio Algers Awards with a full orchestra mass choir backing her as she awed the audience with stunning gowns and a level of extravaganza that had yet been unseen in that annual gala.
