Sydney Lauren has been in love with music her whole life but didn't develop her passion seriously until high school. She's 19 years old and is currently studying at Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. Sydney is primarily a vocalist who started learning the guitar and piano in her early years of high school. It was important to her to have the ability to accompany herself while singing. Learning these instruments is also what sparked her interest in songwriting. Some of Sydney's biggest inspirations are Christina Perri, Sara Bareilles, James Taylor, Carole King, John Mayer, and others. After joining a cappella, and falling in love with it, Sydney started writing songs. Her writing comes from a place of truth and a way to connect to others. Songwriting is how she expresses herself. After spending a year at a college with not enough music for her, she took a personal risk and auditioned for Berklee College of music to follow her passion. That is currently where she is proudly studying songwriting and music business, as well as developing herself as an artist. Sydney has grown from being an overly shy person to a person who craves the feeling of standing on a stage singing and sharing a piece of her heart and experiences in order to relate and connect to others.
