My Friend Syd
Last night my friend Syd came to San Francisco to perform with Gregory Douglass at San Francisco’s Dolores Park Cafe. I was immediately taken back to my days at Emerson College when my classmates and I would crowd into our main dorm’s basement performance space to listen to 19-year-old Syd soulfully strum his guitar and sing his folksy-rocky original songs. I’m fairly certain that most of the female (and likely a large percentage of the male) population had a sizable crush on Syd—and for good reason, as he was and continues to be handsome, funny, and REALLY talented.
Syd is doing something really cool that I want to share with you. He just released a new album (his best yet, as far as I’m concerned), called Upswing, and get this: he’s giving it away. Yep, that’s right. For free.
All you have to do is go here.
Also, check out the new music video from Upswing, The Big Town.
Free music that rocks. What’s not to love?
