One look and you’ll be captivated by her exotic looks and fierce presence; one listen and you’ll be mesmerized by candid lyrics and a piercing yet soulful voice. Syren is one of a rare breed of strong female front-persons, writing all of her lyrics and possessing an exceptionally wide vocal range. She has confidence and charm on stage that electrifies and entices you…all driven by an undeniable passion for art, music and life.
Born and raised in San Francisco, Syren is reminiscent of the city she comes from, embodying the essence of a true free-spirit. A complex and diverse artist, she is able to authentically transverse into a variety of genres from Rock, Electronica, Metal, Hip Hop and R&B. Since childhood, she has explored the gamut of the arts; formally training in voice, classical piano and various forms of dance. She also writes poetry and has dabbled in painting, photography, acting and modeling throughout her career. Aside from her music, she also works as an instructor for yoga and kickboxing as her love for the physical arts translates into her music and performance.
Her music career began in Oakland, California as an adolescent. Listening mostly to R&B and Hip Hop at the time, Syren participated heavily in the sub-culture of the spoken-word scene. Writing and performing this free-style type of poetry laid down the foundation for much of her current lyrical talent. Soon she became an in-demand singer to collaborate with various hip hop artists throughout the Bay Area springing her venture into recording as a solo R&B artist.
As she developed her voice and style, she expanded her range into electronic music, performing as her alter ego, Lady Intensity. A thirst for performing live inspired her to search for live instrumentalists where she fronted in bands playing metal and punk, eventually finding a home in hard rock where she maintained her diverse influences and soulful voice within the energy and aggression of the genre.
She spent several years with her original band, HighFly, touring the Southwest U.S. This is where she developed her rock style in every sense of the word, from musical to fashion to attitude. Taking her career to the next level, Syren traveled across the country in search for a new band bringing her to New York where she continues to thrive in the performing arts and music scene as lead singer for several bands: hard-alternative band Aventine, doom metal band Deep in Vein, electro-pop trio The Neon Bandits and her own brainchild, SYREN’S ELEMENT.
Through Syren’s Element, Syren is able to expand her collaborations beyond music into many genres of art including theatre, comedy and dance.
She is an artist with a Mission: To create genuine music that moves you and to inspire a life lived with passion.
CALL TO ACTION:
I have always worked hard, made music and gave performances with all my heart to resonate deeply with the masses...with the right style and attitude to back it up! I JUST NEED THE RIGHT PEOPLE ON MY TEAM. I spent 4 years with my first rock band creating an amazing album and evolving into a complete rocker chick who can tear up a stage. When my band broke up, I spent a year traveling around the U.S. by myself searching for the right band. I ended up in New York where I spent 3 years forming 3 bands simultaneously...once again making great music, writing and recording albums then booking, promoting and (my favorite!) PERFORMING shows. Things still haven't clicked for me career-wise but I am still as HUNGRY as ever to take my music to the next level. So 6 months ago I quit my job as a fitness instructor, stopped going to school and separated from my bands so I can focus 100% on promoting my music. So far I've become my own manager and built my website, produced a bunch of music videos, promoted online and sent hundreds of demos. I’m staying afloat as a singer by performing with several cover bands for now. I'm looking for a manager/team so that I can get back to working hard as an original ARTIST.
