Comments about live performance:
Sylvie Lewis was in fine form last night. Eric Holden, bass player and producer/co-writer on her album as well as a Berklee grad, accompanied her on both upright and electric bass. Listening to the spare arrangement of acoustic guitar and bass along with her intimate, slightly lazy-in-a-jazzy-way vocals, I was reminded of Suzanne Vega. Sylvie's songwriting is superb too; confessional, personal, vivid. Can you tell that I like her? (11/16/02)
Recommended first album:
Tangos & Tantrums for those who want more cabaret; Translations for those who want less
2005—Cheap Lullaby Records—CLR004-2
Sylvie Lewis—vocals, bass, acoustic guitar
Frank Lenz—percussion, drums, mellotron string arrangement
worth a look if you like..hm..sort of cabaret but not over the top theatrical stuff. Lounge-cabaret? Anyway "All his exes" deserves a prize for best song of the year so far. (email@example.com)
2007—Cheap Lullaby Records
Another lovely album. This one really dials down the cabaret and jazz and has broader influences. The enchanting waltz "Of course, Isabelle" skillfully blends styles and is a highlight among many wonderful songs that showcase her storytelling abilities. (JoAnn Whetsell)
