SYDNEY BROWN: LOVES IS STRONGER THAN SMOKE AND FIRE


On Big Blend Radio, San Francisco Based pop singer-songwriter Sydney Brown talks about her new single “Love is Stronger than Smoke and Fire” that she wrote and recorded with Grammy-winning producer Narada Michael Walden, as a benefit for the victims of the 2017 California fires.

Presently 16 years old, Sydney began her singing career in 2009 and has performed in over ten Broadway musicals with different local theatre companies, including her favorites Legally Blonde, West Side Story, and Sweet Charity. Sydney met Narada in 2010 and began performing with him at his Spring Fling with Strings Concert, singing a cover of the Bill Withers classic “Lean on Me” for her first solo performance. Narada has produced such legendary stars as Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Aretha Franklin, Sting, and George Michael. The single “Love is Stronger than Smoke and Fire” was recorded at the illustrious Tarpan Studios in San Rafael, California, and released in association with Walden’s Tarpan Records.

 

When the devastating California fires broke out in October 2017, Sydney had already been recording with Narada. Horrified by what had happened to so many people in their area, they sat down to discuss lyrics and ideas, and the song “LOVE IS STRONGER THAN SMOKE AND FIRE” was born. Then Sydney had an idea: instead of creating this song for herself, she wanted to release the single in the interest of helping the fire victims that were so close to her. She teamed up with YouCaring and The Red Cross to ensure that proceeds from the single would go directly to both the Northern and Southern California fire victims. Within 48 hours of launching Sydney’s YouCaring fundraising campaign, her initial goal of $5,000 was met. Funds are still being raised.

The intense message of the lyrics and the situation inspired the creation of a full-length music video for the song, with scenes in the video that include footage from the Sonoma, Napa, and Los Angeles fires and their aftermath.

Along with her love for music, Sydney has always had a desire to be a social justice warrior. She joined the Mock Trial team when she began high school in Marin County in 2015, sparking a passion for law which has since begun to flourish. Not only has she joined the Mock Trial team, but she has also been hired for an internship with a local criminal defense attorney. As being an advocate for social justice stole her heart, she wanted to combine her music with that passion.
