Sykamore is a country singer. Noted for her superior writing skill (she writes solo) and raw performance style, she has been creating music since 2012, releasing her debut indie album PETAL in summer 2013 and performing and sharing bills with Canadian music heavyweights and JUNO winners such as Paul Brandt, Tebey, MacKenzie Porter, Lindi Ortega and Adam Cohen. More recently, Sykamore received first prize in the ATB Financial All-Albertan Songwriting contest, with her original song, “Heaven In the Pines”, taking home $10,000 from ATB Financial and an additional $2,000 from Alberta Music. Her music has been featured on the hit TV show Heartland (“I Can Make You Happy”), and she just returned from the Canadian Country Music Association Awards in Halifax where she was nominated for the Discovery Award - one of six finalists that were culled from over 250 entries across Canada. Metro Magazine Calgary recently called her “One of Five Young People to Watch in 2016”.
She listens to many different genres including rock, classical, R&B and of course country for inspiration, but she also looks up to songwriting heavyweights like Patty Griffin, Jackson Browne and T Bone Burnett. “My favourite kind of music is authentic, it’s not necessarily one genre as long as you can tell it’s from the heart and very organic that’s my favourite kind." Sykamore has been singing for as long as she can remember, and when she was 19 she taught herself how to play guitar. Sykamore’s time is divided between Nashville and Calgary – she is currently working on her second studio album.
