Bringing a fresh new sound that is resonating through Houston’s underground music world, Sydnee-Jane has become known for making great records, by combining intimate, intricate verses with catchy hooks. Sydnee-Jane is a classically trained vocalist, and a well rounded artist with a musical family that hails from Texas and has played with greats such as Count Bassie. The Houston, Texas born singer, songwriter, and vocal arranger, is truly one of a kind; she toured a stint with a local rock band, under the name Sydnee-Jane & The Damen Austin Band creating a great fusion of Soul & Rock music and has now formed her own10-piece band. Sydnee-Jane is also working with Multi-Platinum Producers Joe Traxx (Mya, UGK, Ciara, Scarface Etc.), and N.O. Joe (Office Space, Sprite, Family Guy, Scarface, Brian McKnight, Lil Wayne, Etc.), along with her songwriting company, #JANESWORLDLIVE! on the next Sydnee-Jane project, as well major song placements and touring with her band, “The J.J’s” (The Jane’s & Johnny’s). When asked to describe her style she breaks it down, "as a songwriter, my music is a fusion of all genres from classical music to rap, but as an artist my style is heavily concentrated in the Soul, Rock, and Pop, areas with a splash of doo-wop and hip-hop. Sounds crazy I know but it blends, I call my sound Alternative with an AfroPunk vibe! I have been experimenting with 60s and 70s music, and I love the Woodstock era." Come step into #JANESWORLD!
