Sara Syms / Bio

Raw, organic and heartfelt, roots/ americana artist Sara Syms writes from the most honest, intimate and vulnerable place in her soul.

Influenced by artists such as Ryan Adams, Patty Griffin and Ray Lamontagne, her debut album Fade To Blue was recorded upstate with engineer Matthew Cullen (Ray LaMontagne, Rachael Yamagata, Martha Wainwright, Madeline Peyroux, My Morning Jacket) at Dreamland Studios, a 19th century country church which has been host to such legendary artists as Pat Metheny, The Band, Herbie Hancock, The B-52s, 10,000 Maniacs, John Hall, and current artists Beach House and Fleet Foxes.

Originally from Chicago, Sara Syms has been playing music for as long as she can remember. Exposed to music at a very young age, her studies included piano and violin, and a member of world renowned choir: The Glen Ellyn Childrens Chorus. Though she has performed all over the US with various bands including Dirty Water, Darren Gaines and the Key Party and The Ashen, her heart is most at home in Americana.

Under the wings of Brad Paul (Rounder Records, Americana Music Association) and Lynn Verlayne (Round Hill Music), she is currently on tour in support of the album.
