Sydnee Carter is an 19 year old indie/pop/contemporary singer/songwriter from Perth, Western Australia. Sydnee had basic guitar lessons for about a year, but taught herself from that point on and was in-charge of her own musical learning and development without vocal coaching since she purchased her first acoustic guitar at age 7. Sydnee came to media attention after reaching the live auditions of X Factor Australia 2014.
Sydnee has already captured the interest of international audiences, when Ashton Kutcher posted her full X Factor audition on his facebook page and later shared the audition on twitter.
On the X Factor, Sydnee progressed through from the live auditions to boot camp to making it through the final 6 of the under 25 girls, where under the mentoring of Ronan Keating, she performed for international recording artist John Legend to make it into the final 3 under 25 girls to proceed to the live shows in NSW Australia. Sydnee survived 5 weeks of live shows and gained valuable experience and an insight into performing on live TV.
Since early 2015 Sydnee has been performing on a regular basis for charity events, corporate and private functions, music festivals and has supported some well known artists. Sydnee recorded here self titled debut EP of original music in December 2014 which was released February 2015. In December 2015 Sydnee made the grand final of the Telstra “road to discovery” a national competition for singer song writers and had the chance to attend a boot camp designed to furnish attendees with the knowledge to make a career in the Industry. Sydnee’s next EP is currently being completed and the first track is due for release in January 2017.
Sydnee is looking forward to being able to share her original music at her performances.
working on my EP meant I could really explore myself as an artist and deliver honest, real songs written from the heart
