A Few Minutes with… Sydney Worthley

“Playing solo, like tonight at The Bunker in Clifton Park, I take it easier with my vocals and try to dial it back and make it feel more intimate.  There is definitely a huge difference with the full band tomorrow-you go full energy and give it all you got for a full hour and then get off stage all sweaty and tired and you just want to go to bed! Saturday at Lark Hall is the last date my band is playing this year, I hope everyone can make it out.

I just turned 19 in October.  My first performances were at 11 or 12, playing small gigs at Emack and Bolio’s for free ice cream.  That was an incentive for an 11-year-old!  It kept me coming back.  My senior year was 2020 and everything shut down in March, the start of all the good parts of senior year!  I’m not in college, I’m going to pursue music, this is my path right now.  I have some odd jobs I babysit and I nanny.  Now I have no manager, I am independent and enjoying it.

I wrote over 80 songs during the pandemic, it gave me a lot of time to be alone with my thoughts. My goal and my hope is for a 15 song album.  My first album was very all over the place and Rose Colored Glasses was more Alt-Pop.  I don’t want to stay in the same place my entire career.  I want to add some interesting synth sounds, not just me and my guitar.  I’ve been listening to a lot of Maggie Rogers, as a producer, she is really amazing.”
