At 17, New York native, Sydney Irving is in the early years of her music career, but she has already been named the 2020 Young Adult Artist of the Year by the International Singer Songwriters Association and the 2020 Female Artist of the Year by Music Mafia Radio. Irving has been fortunate to have had the opportunity to be direct support for Starship featuring Mickey Thomas at the 2019 Spiedie Fest in Binghamton, NY and perform at the 2019 Dio Day event in Cortland, NY.
Later that year, Sydney attended a Barns Courtney concert. She had the chance to meet him before the show and then during the show, Courtney called her up on stage to sing his hit song “You & I” with him! She has also had the privilege to open for artists like Matt Rogers and Mikele Buck as well as be the youngest artist to have a residency at the largest casino in New York State. Sydney Irving, who has been nominated for best singer/songwriter at the Syracuse Area Music Awards three times, has been writing songs since she was twelve with her guitar; Sydney is a proud Breedlove Guitar endorsed artist.
Now at 17, Irving is gearing up to release her fifth studio album, “Relax With Fiends” with her lead single “Rain”. “The premise of ‘Rain’ is it’s usually a bad thing and you want to get away from it. But, the rain is purifying and then you can step into the light and feel better than before,” Irving says.
