New Jersey based Singer / Songwriter SYDNEY SHERWOOD flexes her lyrical prowess with her newest single, “Cycle of Silence,” which sees the gifted chanteuse teamed with fellow American Idol alumni KASON LESTER. A deeply reflective and relatable track, the song comes to life through the pairing of the two distinctive young vocalists on this stunning duet.
“‘Cycle of Silence’ is one of my favorite songs I’ve ever recorded. I had the idea for it back in the winter and wrote it with my talented friends, Joe Makoviecki and Brian Craddock. It’s about two people who are in a constant state of miscommunication, who wish that they could fix things, but aren’t really willing to hear each other out. I brought it to my good friend Kason Lester, who I met on American Idol and asked him to help me bring the duet to life and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out! ” – SYDNEY SHERWOOD
“Sydney is rock’s answer to pop’s P!NK or country’s Carrie Underwood, she exudes all the power and confidence and sings with no-nonsense authority, all while remaining firmly situated in heavy alternative rock. Sydney Sherwood cannot be merely compared to female singers of her generation and writes and performs with a conviction that fans of 3 Doors Down or Daughtry would instantly recognize.” – Joe Makoviecki (Singer, songwriter of Jackson Pines)
