Sydney Mae is driving herself forward to share her passion by taking every opportunity to showcase her skill set.
Sydney Mae is a Canadian award-winning, recording artist originally from Calgary, Alberta, and currently based in Toronto, Ontario. As an experienced performer with a deep-rooted passion for songwriting, her talents have garnered awards recognizing both her performance and songwriting, from rodeo-stage talent contests to collecting the first ever Alberta Country Music Association’s 2017 Horizon Award to performing in a round at the Bluebird Café and 3rd & Lindsley in Nashville.
In March of 2015, Sydney Mae participated in NACMAI Awards (North America Country Music Associations International) in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee and brought back to Canada with her, four first place awards for Songwriter of The Year, Co-Songwriters of The Year, Vocalist of the Year as well as Entertainer of The Year.
As a songwriter, Sydney Mae is emerging as a superior storyteller having songs cut in Nashville and internationally. She started writing when she was just 11 years old and has been writing with Canadian and Nashville-based songwriters ever since. “There is a place where everyone can escape to and find some sort of healing and I believe that music moves people in that way like nothing else can. Just being able to tell stories and make others feel human and understood fills me up with so much joy. I love it when an artist can bring me out of my life for a few minutes and that’s all I strive to do for others.”
Sydney Mae prioritizes her community involvement and has lent her voice to over 10 different charities and fundraisers, including performing at W. Brett Wilson’s annual Christmas Charity Fundraiser, as well as a residency at The Ronald McDonald House. She received the “Special Recognition Award” for entertainment in community service at the Calgary Stampede by the Western Showcase Committee and was named a top finalist for her community service by The Alberta Music Education Foundation in 2014.
