Hyped By: Izzy Cihak

Since her 2005 debut, Tangos and Tantrums, Sylvie Lewis has been playing the part of the fairy princess of the world of singer/songwriters and dinner theater venues. Her ethereally Jazzy vocality and a delicately other-worldly Folk musicality combine to create a sound that could underscore any Disney climax or the cutest moment of your life. Last year's Translations is a nearly flawless collection of fables imbued with an endearingly quirky schizophrenia. Songs like "And Of Course, Isobel…" and "Just You" are just slightly offbeat takes on mythical romance and "If It Don't Come Easy" and "Old Queens, Monet and Me" are pleasantly jaded social commentary that could seemingly only be found in a storybook. This Fall this Rome-by-way-of-Los-Angeles-by-way-of-London songstress is bringing her magical brand of storytelling to the states while supporting Sondre Lerche. Listed below are your opportunities to be enchanted by Ms. Lewis… or at least see a singer/songwriter that doesn't make you want to burn down every coffee house in the world.
