Sye's music is diverse in song range and influence, bending categories and challenging definement. His all original compositions are at once beautiful and devastating. With vocals, guitars and FX, he pushes sound to evoke an edge. Diverse in range and emotion, his songs can be fun, dark, agitate pathos, angst and a heart felt depth.
