GLITTER: How would you describe your sound?
SYDNEY: I’m soulful but pop.
GLITTER: You started out professionally at age 16 as songwriter, at what point did you decide that you wanted to be on stage?
SYDNEY: At 18 I was in the studio recording a demo and one of the reps from the label asked why not do everything and I looked at my mom and she looked at me and we were like, “Yeah, why not,” so I put a band together and started recording my records while studying music theory.
GLITTER: You have opened for so many incredible artists. Who would be your dream artist to collaborate with?
SYDNEY: Definitely Babyface. He’s been in the game for so long and he does it so gracefully. I really look up to him.
GLITTER: How do you unwind and practice self love?
SYDNEY: Spending time with my family keeps me grounded but I also like to keep a daily journal to be able to see how I progress or digress. It really gives me the opportunity for self-reflection.
GLITTER: What is the vibe of your upcoming album?
SYDNEY: This whole album is a love story. All ages and all people, women and men, will connect with it because everyone has had a love story.
GLITTER: What does it mean to perform at the Black Caucus and Juneteenth?
SYDNEY: This is so important. I am very honored for the opportunity to get to show my audience the pride that I have for my heritage.
GLITTER: What is your go-to song?
SYDNEY: It’s gonna be either a Rihanna song or Beyoncé, for sure. Maybe, “Upgrade You” by Beyoncé.
GLITTER: What inspires you as a writer?
SYDNEY: I’m writing the story of my life, so basically I get inspiration from everywhere and anything. I make everything into a song. I even have a song for washing dishes!
GLITTER: If you could describe yourself in 3 words what would they be?
SYDNEY: Whimsical. Goofy. Passionate.
We cannot wait to see her rise to fame.
