Dance away heartbreak with SIDNĒ

“I’ve seen Satanic puppet shows, plastic baby dolls used as instruments, and 30 minutes of pitched yelling to melodic noise tracks.”

SIDNĒ: “It was a little dangerous, but the fun, memorable shows usually are.”
SIDNĒ: “It was a little dangerous, but the fun, memorable shows usually are.”

“Not being able to find a waffle with whipped cream after playing a show in Las Vegas. Do your research if you’re ever in Vegas looking to eat a waffle at 1am.”

That’s local singer/songwriter/producer SIDNĒ describing her toughest experiences from touring. But she also racked up some (pleasantly) memorable experiences along the way.

“My favorite show was in a cave at Sutro Baths in San Francisco,” she recalls. “It was a little dangerous but the fun, memorable shows usually are, right? I’ve been part of many odd warehouse shows in LA. In my day, I’ve seen Satanic puppet shows, plastic baby dolls used as instruments, and 30 minutes of pitched yelling to melodic noise tracks. Only in Los Angeles…”

SIDNĒ’s spent time in Clairemont and La Jolla. “Clairemont is where my family has been for years, and it’s where we’ve always gathered for holidays, family events, and the like. La Jolla is also home because of my favorite childhood memories. I remember going to the tide pools as a kid and marveling at the sea creatures and how the water looked like diamonds on a sunny day. The ocean in general is a spiritual force in my life (along with heavy metal and puppies.)”

Part Filipina and part Mexican, she draws from both sides of her heritage. “On my Filipina side, there is also a strong Polynesian influence. My Mother was a Tahitian Hula dancer, and that entire side of the family has always celebrated our island ancestry. My brother and I have been passed down an appreciation for where we come from, and a respect for the unseen, spiritual realm that surrounds us.”

“My Mexican side is where my fire, passion, and loyalty stems from. From that side, I’ve embraced what it means to be driven, the power of family, and how important it is to show up for the people you love. Both sides are incredibly vibrant, and I’m lucky to have a rich, combined culture to pull inspiration from.”

Her new single is “Don’t Come Down,” and she’s got three more singles, plus an album. Her one regret, is that, after making the switch from producer to performer, she can’t (yet) get a gig in her hometown. “It’s been a little tricky,” she admits. “My shows tend to be aggressive group therapy sessions where everyone wants to dance away their heartbreak.”
