New Music: Sy Smith

by Winston "Stone" Ford

sy010.jpgI first heard about Sy Smith when I recorded the Podcast with Anthony David. He said that Sy's new album, The Syberspace Social, is (in his own words), “Coooollllldddd Bloooooded.”

I most definitely agree.

First Sa-Ra, then J*Davey, and now Sy Smith. LA is now the king when it comes to progressive R&B.

Ms. Smith is armed to take over your headphones in 2005 with The Syberspace Social, bringing a sound reminiscent of outernational superstar Kelis.

This CD will delight your ears and massage your mind. The album lends some of its production credit to Nicolay, the man responsible for the Foreign Exchange which dropped last year. Sy brings heavy doses of space funk to the table, and takes her genre to a new level.

Smith is not a newcomer to the music scene. Growing up in Washington, DC, Sy has performed extensively in our city's go-go circuit. After taking over DC, she moved to LA, where she has appeared on the hit Fox television series Ally McBeal, and has produced music on several TV shows and movies.

Smith will be performing this Sunday night at Raheem DeVaughn's Chocolate City Cotton Club in Takoma Park, DC.

    I have to agree that Sy is dope! She also sang backup for Me'shell Ndegeocello, Brandy, Whitney Houston and the list goes on. I was actually going to feature this album in upcoming weeks but you beat me to it, lol. Great find. I'm loving the new site and all the features, listening to the Anthony David podcast now. Thanks for all the musical treats.
