Bio

Upon listening to 20 year old Sydnee Carter sing, it's staggering to learn she has no formal training. Her voice, far beyond that of an amateur (let along someone her age) is so perfectly controlled and agile that it beggars belief. Further to this, those natural gifts that simply can not be taught – from tone to character – are in abundance in Sydnee's voice. Her latest single, the charming Give It All Away, is a showcase of all these things.

Although she initially went the TV talent competition route as a bright eyed 15 year old, it was her own songwriting that would lead Sydnee to success. In 2015 she earned a coveted WAM Award in the Under 18s category, and was a finalist in Telstra's highly competitive songwriting tournament, Road To Discovery. A year later she was accepted into the prestigious Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts to study contemporary music, and found her first taste of overseas success performing showcases at Singapore's Music Matters conference.

After all this preparation and experience in her early youth, by the time Sydnee came to release her own music, she was well equipped to make a proper splash. 2017 was a massive year, seeing wave after wave of accomplishment flow forth. Sydnee's beautiful coming-of-age single When We Were Young kicked things off, earning her a WAM Song Of The Year Award. From there, she would be involved in a series of career-defining collaborations: the wildly successful Afraid Unafraid (which she also co-wrote) with Slumberjack, the European hit Heartbeat with Leroy Styles, and Money from the #1 charting Vintage Modern album by Aus hip hop icon 360.

Coming into her own, Sydnee is now at the helm of a four-piece band of virtuoso players. Earning her way onto festival stages, and with literally millions of online views and streams, her prowess as a live performer continues to grow in tandem with her reputation as a singer and songwriter. Give It All Away ushers in the next phase of what is already a runaway career. Focusing the heightened emotion of love at first sight, Give It All Away is brimming with hope and naivety – energising Sydnee's incredible voice with the irresistible optimism of youth.

A true talent, Sydnee's undeniable starlight has been noticed – earning her the flattering review of being one of Perth's best voices by Pilerats. Far more than a 'next big thing' prospect, Sydnee is working towards longevity and substance, and Give It All Away proves she has the ability, flair and work ethic to back it up.

Great to hear new stuff from Sydnee - I'm always keen to hear whatever she's been working on. This one's got a nice driving pulse to it, like the first rush of some new love.
