A new beginning
Rose Colored glasses
From private bedroom writing sessions, to recording at well acclaimed Nada Recording Studio, Worthley is jumping in head first with Rose Colored Glasses. Almost 3 years after her debut, Sydney Worthley, a shining young star from New York's Capital Region, has continued her journey in music with a new EP. Sydney is reinventing her musical identity with these new alt-pop pieces. From the ballad-like intro of "Sinking Ship", to the pulsing melodies in "4:15", to the reflective title track "Rose Colored Glasses", Sydney Worthley shares delicate stories in this 5 track EP. Melodies and vocal parts nodding towards Florence and the Machine and songwriting styles comparable to Taylor Swift shine through these songs. By writing from personal brooding memory, Worthley strives to make connections with her audience through her healing processes. Strength, growth, and coming of age are all themes in this EP but she's not taking things lightly anymore. She is determined to share her struggles but has gained confidence and wants her audience to feel that through her work.
In 2019, Sydney became an independent artist at the age of 17. In 2017, Sydney released her debut 14-track album titled Strong, followed by performances at at Mountain Jam Music Festival, First Night Saratoga, across New England alongside Sawyer Fredricks, and all over New York's Capital Region. She has earned regular spots on Albany’s 88.3 WVCR and 97.7 WEXT, Woodstock NY’s 100.3 WDST, and WAPS “The Summit” in Akron, OH.
“Sydney Worthley is an artist to keep an eye on. She is young, but don’t dismiss her as a novelty for that reason. Her songwriting is impressive and memorable; a shining star for many releases to come. Pay attention now! She’s on her way.” ~ Brad Savage, Program Director – WAPS “The Summit” Akron, OH
“While 'Strong' exhibited a mix of musical styles, Worthley said she’s honed her sound to something more aligned to pop folk. Each of the five tracks are quick shots clocking in at less than three minutes. The whole EP is faster in pace, played with a more up-beat sound, yet continues to showcase her talent for songwriting.” - Michael Hallisey
