Sydney Harrison Northern Lights

A new shooter on the contemporary scene!
Brent Black / www.bop-n-jazz.com

Those of you familiar with my work know that I champion the young up and coming artist and while I rarely if ever take a look at singles, Sydney Harrison is certainly worth the time to check out! Far more than just another pretty yet highly marketable face, Harrison is a singer/pianist/songwriter that would seem poised to begin making some noise on the contemporary music front.

What is captivating about Harrison is that she sidesteps genre and strict categorization which is traditionally a critics worst nightmare. I love that. Talent wins out every time. Lyrically focused and playing from an incredibly rich harmonic color palette, Harrison's talent should have her moving through a variety of genres and musical projects with relative ease. An impressive single from a most impressive new talent. Check her out for yourself:

My commitment to the new artists and paying it forward continues and Sydney Harrison makes it easy!
