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, Ray Lamontagne and Patty Griffin, her debut album Fade To Blue was recorded in Woodstock, NY with engineer Matthew Cullen (Ray LaMontagne, Rachael Yamagata, Madeline Peyroux) at Dreamland Studios, a 19th century country church which has been host to such legendary artists as Pat Metheny, The Band, Herbie Hancock, 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, violin and voice. Though she has performed all over the US with various bands including Dirty Water, Darren Gaines & the Key Party and The Ashen, her heart is most at home in Americana.
