Sydney Wright To Reveal Herself With Release of Seiche, This May

Sydney Wright is gearing up to release the title track of her debut album ‘Seiche’, at the start of May. After a busy SXSW and a new-found sound, the small-town-born musician explores a lyrical layout a little different to her typical sound – revolutionary in this track, the live-looping instrumentalist releases a side of her that Austin hasn’t seen before.

“I’ve been listening to this ‘Gangster Rap Gym Motivation’ playlist on Spotify lately,” Sydney said, sparing a minute in her busy schedule to speak to us.“I like the percussive layout of the lyrics and I want that musical style to be fresh in my head while I’m making new music. 

“I wrote the single, ‘Seiche’, while I was going to UNT in Denton. 

“It was a time when I was working through a lot of changes nearing graduation, dealing with my first band breakup, and making a plan to support myself and fly solo in the music industry.”

A feeling prevalent in the coming months, as universities wind down and students tense up for graduation, the multi-talented singer is reaching out a hand of support that is not always on offer. A success story, it feels like, that pushes your worries away – her voice freeing your mind on the high notes, like a delicate bird flying far away with them.

“I struggled a lot with blaming myself for things out of insecurity or simply because someone else was assigning the blame to me. I’m still learning and changing, but I came out of that chapter of life with my very own beliefs, effective ways to express myself so that I’m heard, and a list of unfair and abusive behaviors and attitudes that I do not allow to thrive in my space.

“Seiche is about freeing yourself from expectations. It’s a story of transcendence.

“It’s inspired by finding solace in being okay with yourself and being unaffected by people who aren’t. ”

Stealing the show from Star Wars, the musician is set to shock Austin all over again with her sunny disposition yet heart-wrenchingly emotional voice with the release show on May 4th at Cheer Up Charlie’s but that’s not the end of it. A calendar full of plans for this year, this musician is going to be one to watch now more than ever – 2018 will be the year of Sydney Wright.

So, get listening to gangsta rap until then and be sure to check out Sydney’s Facebook below so more details!

Sydney Wright Parties In Her PJ’s For Seiche

What better way to spend a Sunday afternoon than day drinking in a comfy pair of pajamas with experimental pop artist Sydney Wright? The live-looping, multi-instrumentalist curated Austin’s first ever “PajamaJam” with several of her closest friends last Sunday at LUX on W 6Th Street all in support of Wright’s forthcoming album, Seiche, due in the fall. The open mic event featured stripped-down performances by Sydney Wright, Eric Tessmer, Kalu James, Johnny Goudie, Danny Malone, Jane Ellen Bryant, Buenos Diaz, Fair City Fire, Color Candy, Paul Greenamyer, Neosho and a hip-hop fueled cameo by Wright’s “Eve incarnate” superhero sister.

“It’s all about community and support,” said Wright. “All of the musicians performing are my friends that agreed to volunteer their work to support my project. I feel really lucky to even know these artists, let alone have them all donate their effort to prop me up on my leaning side.”

A limited amount of wristbands were sold to the PajamaJam which allowed guests access to gourmet tacos, exclusive drink specials and downloads of “Seiche” before it’s released to the public. The proceeds from this event will go towards Wright’s ongoing Indiegogo campaign, which can be found at http://www.sydneygogo.com.

With this campaign, Wright is looking to allocate funds to help with shooting and producing the “Seiche” music video, album and single art, marketing, printing CDs and promo material, social promotion and radio promotion. Interesting rewards include Sydney’s old, orange Gretsch guitar, fulfilled song requests, Skype lessons, a 2GB USB of exclusive content, posters, downloads, CDs, t-shirts and more.

Sydney Wright’s first single and title track off the upcoming album,“Seiche,” is set to be released on May 4, 2018. Wright will play a single release show on May 4 at Cheer Up Charlies.
