Sydney Cubit possesses a maturity and quiet confidence that belies her young age of 14, and this depth no doubt seeps into every aspect of her music especially her songwriting. Cubit’s influences range from the eclectic sounds of indie artists to the powerhouse vocals of Adele and the bluesy grooves of John Mayer. Combine a great hunger for musical variety with a passion to learn and a talent like Cubit’s…It’s a powerful mixture! "For this EP, I thought it was important to show my range. I wanted people to listen to Pick Up the Pieces and say 'COOL folk/indie vibe' and then be blown away by a bluesy song when the next track played (Lock You Up). It was a dream to get to have my mentor, Elliot Collett, produce this project. His vision and style took it to a whole new level!"
Sydney has earned spots on stage with both award-winning and up-and-coming acts including opening for Norah Jones (at the Kentucky Theater), Walt Aldridge, Bo Allen, Elliot Collett, Jenna Paulette, Hannah Ellis and Rick Huckaby. Her accomplishments include the 2011 Tennessee Country and Gospel Music Association’s “New Country Vocalist and Songwriter of the Year” and the 2012 National Association of Country Music International’s “Most Promising New Songwriter” and “Vocalist of the Year” awards.
