Bio

Bec Sykes is a singer-songwriter from the outer eastern suburbs of Melbourne. Layering moody melodies upon minimalist piano and guitar, Bec uses her voice as an instrument and masters the art of emo-folk. Bec has spent the past eighteen months honing her songwriting skills and playing at many of Melbourne’s most beloved intimate venues including The Wesley Anne, Grace Darling, and Some Velvet Morning. Having been crowned the winner of Melbourne label, Pieater’s ‘Pie School’ competition in late 2019, Bec has recently been in the studio with Tom Iansek (Big Scary, #1 Dads, Airling) to record her first single, 'Edithvale'.

I am moved so deeply by this song.
Bec Sykes has stolen a piece of my heart and made it shine.

Car theft has never and will never sound this good.
