Sylvy was born in Italy and now based in Northern Ireland. Sylvy dreamt of playing in a band since she was young. She learnt guitar and started a punk rock band with her best friend back in secondary school and they wrote their first songs together and played covers.
Glen Hansard invited Sylvy to sing with him on stage twice on separate occasions back in Bologna, Italy. This unexpected experience inspired her to write more music and over time gave her the confidence to pursue a solo project.
Sylvy’s debut EP “The Starry-Eyed” is a heartfelt ode to love with its ups and downs.
It was produced by Nikolas Pumilia for Himself Records. Sylvy’s friend Elisa Bardasi plays bass and sings backing vocals on some of the tracks. Sylvy hopes to perform live in the future.
Starry-Eyed is soulful, captivating and fresh-sounding. Each of the tracks in this album have their own unique style.- Jo
