Sy Smith (USA)

Los Angeles-based singer, songwriter and producer, Sy Smith is one of the brightest exponents of the West-Coast  nu-soul scene which now boasts some of the most progressive artists of that genre to date, some of whom came directly from Smith’s own band line-ups (including Thundercat and Kamasi Washington). All 5 of her studio albums, including her brand new project “Sometimes A Rose Will Grow In Concrete” have been heralded by critics around the world for Smith’s lyrical dexterity and vocal range, which moves effortlessly from a speakeasy, gritty alto all the way to a stratospheric soprano whistle register reminiscent of the late Minnie Riperton.

Through her career she has provided supporting vocals for Whitney Houston, Sheila E., Meshell Ndegeocello, Chaka Khan, Usher, Macy Gray among others. Most recently she’s caught the ear of jazz aficionados as a featured guest with Grammy-winning trumpeter Chris Botti.
