Sydney Ellis

Sydney began her singing career in the Los Angeles area when, on the day after her 44th birthday, in 1991, she got her nerve up and climbed up onto a session stage.

The dream comes true. Since then, her singing has blossomed into an obsession for Blues, Classic Jazz and other folk music that is her cultural heritage. This obsession has taken her in 3 short years from the Los Angeles area to Europe.

Since 1995, Sydney has been touring and performing in Europe now in its ninth year. Scheduled venues for 2003 include; Germany, Switzerland, The Netherlands. Past years have also given Sydney the opportunity to perform and travel in France, Croatia, Slovakia, The Ukraine, Belgium, Norway, Lithuania, The Czech Republic, Austria, Sweden, and Ireland.

The gratitude that Sydney expresses everyday is directed to the music and the people who have come to see over the years. The music has given her that "Obsession" that only a few people get to experience in their lives. The support the people have given her has allowed her the opportunity make friends from all over the world, to travel and see places that many only dream of. "Lucky" cannot begin to describe the way she feels about what the music and the people supporting her and her music have given her.

Born in Red Jacket, West Virginia in 1947. Sydney grew up in Cleveland, Ohio, where she married and had five children. She is now married for the second time (17 years and counting) and has four granddaughters and two grandsons. Sydney currently lives in a small city in central Germany where she maintains an office and enjoys the quietness and privacy between road trips and tours.
