Falling In

Cover Sydney Leigh

Sydney Leigh has dedicated her life to the medicine of sacred music. Traveling far and wide to connect with wisdom keepers and community to cocreate and share her musical soundscapes, Sydney is living the intention of healing through spirit and prayer to awaken the heart. Falling In encompasses all of these aspects of her artistry, from sacred folk to expansive kirtan. My current favorite is “You Move Me,” which I find reminiscent of the great Santa Cruz singer Kirtana.

Sydney is already an accomplished vocalist of sacred music, incorporating her California Institute of the Arts studies in classical voice, opera, and acting, as well as studies at the Ali Akbar College of Music. As a ceremonialist for healing of the lands and waters, she has found her path through sonic expression, vocal alchemy, and ceremony. Falling In was recorded in Maui, offering sacred songs of Indian lineage crossed with soulful vocals.

As a songwriter, she believes there is a beauty in telling stories that spark a relating to all people and empowers an emotional experience. She finds that music holds an essential key to digesting the unrest and injustices of our world and allows a deeper space for healing.

Her songs stream from deep pools of her own healing journey infused with elements of blues, folk, and Indian influences. Superb musicianship by K. Alan Roth, Jared May, Prem Vida, Ankush Vimawala, and others supports her expansive songs. Her CD release tour begins this fall. For Sydney, life is a prayer, a ceremony, and a practice every day in calling ourselves home and witnessing the divine grace of life itself. Falling into Falling In is a gentle, inspired invitation.
