Emerging artist, Sydney Hutchko, is a vocal powerhouse. Born and raised in a small town outside of Pittsburgh, Sydney is proud of her roots, but loves to now call Nashville home. She grew up singing wherever she could and at 12, began writing songs. Sydney always knew she had the music in her and is thrilled to be doing the only thing she has ever wanted to do.
Working with producer/songwriter Bob Corbin, well known for his many hits written for Alabama, The Oakridge Boys and Kenny Rogers, Sydney recorded her self-titled EP at The Sound Emporium Studios, Nashville, TN/Market Street Sound, Pittsburgh, PA. Sydney wrote multiple tracks for the EP, which was released in June 2011 on iTunes, and within the first 24 hours, climbed the iTunes Country Album Chart.
On January 7, 2012 the first single released from the EP, “Mr. Mister”, debuted on the Mediabase Country Chart at #106. It has charted for the last five weeks, and is currently charting at #92. It is quite an accomplishment to be on the Mediabase Country Chart, but to chart as an unsigned artist is a major accomplishment, and one that she hopes is the beginning of a long and successful career in the music industry. Sydney is definitely pinching herself…considering that eight months ago she was a college student interning in the music industry!
This past year has been filled with many opportunities , working with Country Music Hall of Fame songwriter Jim Weatherly, as well as being mentored by Grammy award-winning artist, Linda Davis. A couple of 2011 highlights were performing with Miss Davis during CMA Fest 2011, and being invited for the second consecutive year to the legendary Jamboree in the Hills, one of the largest outdoor concerts in the country, where she performed for a crowd of over 40,000. A partial list of country artists Sydney has opened for include: George Jones, Miranda Lambert, Craig Morgan, Jamey Johnson, Brett Eldredge, David Nail, and Charlie Daniels.
Sydney is fast becoming a regular on the Nashville music scene, and has played at The Listening Room, 3rd & Lindsley, Hotel Indigo, Douglas Corner Cafe, The Rutledge, and National Underground, to name a few venues. Syd also loves to come home to do shows in and around the Pittsburgh tri-state area, every chance she gets. So get ready to hear those killer vocals, as Sydney captivates you with her versatility and explosive stage presence.
