- About me:
Sydney Ellen is a lead guitarist, songwriter and composer, hailing from Southern California. No stranger to the stage, Sydney has years of experience performing Classic Rock, Metal, Hard Rock, Funk, Motown, and Pop, but perhaps her greatest skill is her ability to perform on stage with an enviable sense of ease - a skill that has left her decorated with numerous awards as one of the top rising female guitarists in the rock scene. Sydney's music has been featured on The Heidi and Frank Show - 95.5 KLOS, and recently featured on Nikki Sixx's radio show - Sixx Sense. Sydney has garnered a rapidly growing worldwide fanbase, and continues to connect with her fans through her love for performing, admiring unique guitars, and teaching guitar.
A multi-faceted prodigious musician, Sydney was first a trained pianist at age five. Growing up listening to Classic Rock and being heavily influenced by the performance style of Jimmy Page, Sydney expanded her musical talent to the guitar, and ultimately songwriting and composing for film and TV. After over a decade of curating her skills, Sydney attended the prestigious Berklee College of Music, graduating Summa Cum Laude, and still dedicates herself to perfecting her craft every single day.
Trained by Michael Jackson guitarist, Jennifer Batten, and equipped with unrivaled talent and extensive educational pedigree, Sydney has made a seamless transition from dedicated student to professional musician.
Her cutting edge look coupled with her musical talent and stage presence has earned Sydney various endorsements and sponsorships from clothing and accessory companies, equipment vendors, hair stylists and makeup artists.
