“When Sylvie Lewis sings, everyone should stop and take notice. She has the goods in spades…” –James Combs, Producer, New Ground, KCRW
“Lewis captivates with clever situational lyrics and barroom musical sensibilities. Her compelling tunes turn seemingly personal explorations into universal truths. –FlavorPill, NYC
“The London-born chanteuse’s wry, worldly twist on relationships springs from numbers styled in cabaret, jazz, ragtime and waltz, held together by her rapturous, dusky vocals.” –Los Angeles Times
“If Lewis’s subjects are effectively variation on time worn themes – head-over-heels romance, lost love, dissolute partners and so on – her perspective is distinctly of the moment.” –Time Out New York
“…Sylvie Lewis delivers songs in a meandering style reminiscent of Rufus Wainwright, with a sweetly expressive voice… her piano-laden debut disc, Tangos &Tantrums, is filled with tales of lives and loves.” –New York Post
Rome-based, London-born singer-songwriter Sylvie Lewis released her latest full-length studio album, It’s All True in 2012.
Produced by Richard Swift (The Shins) – who recently produced new albums from Jesse Baylin and The Mynabirds – It’s All True features Sylvie alongside renowned writing partners and
special guests such as Gary Go, Sondre Lerche, Don Henry, and Pasquale Catalano.
There’s an undeniable charm to Sylvie Lewis, a singer-songwriter who’s traversed the globe living in five different countries, on three continents, and who speaks four languages. It’s not only that she can stroll the streets of Rome whenever she likes,
or that she’s studied at an acclaimed American music school (Berklee School of Music), taught English to Hollywood stars before anyone knew who they were, had a lead actor from Harry Potter contribute to her latest Kickstarter campaign
(for the music video of the track “The Fish and The Bird”), or even the fact that she comes from the family of renowned BBC newscaster Martyn Lewis (her father),
ex-model Liz Carse (mother), and polar explorer and actor Duncan Carse (grandfather). Of course, all of these naturally contribute to help define who she is,
but her allure truly comes into focus around her skilfully crafted of writing love songs. And, that’s what It’s All True is about: Love. In all its many forms and fashions.
