Sydney Schizzano

Sydney Schizzano is a powerful singer/songwriter who cleverly combines elements of indie-rock, soul, rap, and R&B into a unique blend of pop marked by punchy lyrics and catchy hooks. Songs like “Never Be Good” and “Wolves” showcase her ability to draw upon influences such as Childish Gambino and Ed Sheeran for more aggressive and fast paced songs that will have you dancing in no time. Slower and powerful ballads such as “Pamela” and “I Had A Dream Last Night” reveal a soulful, folkier side that can melt hearts, influenced by artists such as Tori Kelly and Regina Spektor. Her band is made up of bass, drums, guitar, keyboard, synthesizers and sensational background vocals.

A seasoned performer, Sydney has appeared as a solo artist and with her band at The Bitter End in New York City, in addition to venues on Long Island and in the Albany, NY capital district. She has also appeared as a guest singing backing vocals for the traditional Irish Folk band The Chieftains, and was chosen to sing The National Anthem for thousands at the opening of a New York Mets game.
