A consummate entertainer, Mathew Sydney has been a composer, actor and visual artist since an early age.  His influences include classic rock giants such as Elton John, David Bowie and The Beatles; alternative artists such as Siouxsie Sioux, the B-52's and Dead Can Dance; and cutting edge contemporaries such as St. Vincent and Neko Case.

Sydney began performing at open mics in 2005 and by 2009 he was headlining shows in his native Florida.  

A dedicated supporter of his fellow independent artists, Sydney was the producer and host of BlogTalkRadio program, Indie Florida  (2012 - 2014) where he featured music by and interviews with other artists.  His live performances are also structured in a variety show format, creating a showcase for audiences to experience other talented artists as well as Sydney's original music.
