Sylvie Lewis is a folk musician from London, England. She moved to the United States in 1995 and studied at the Berklee College of Music. After graduation, she relocated to Los Angeles in 1998, where she quit music to become a teacher. Two years later. upon reading an article in a Los Angeles newspaper which stated that in a survey of the worst paid jobs in the US, teacher was number 2 and musician was number 1 - she decided to go straight for the top and return to being a singer/songwriter. Her self-released EP was heard by Cheap Lullaby Records (Joan As Policewoman, Teitur, Tobias Froberg etc.), who signed her to a deal.
Thoughts on Songs with Sylvie Lewis

To whoever owns this album it is more than obvious the musical similarity between "Valentine's Day" and "The Love Song". Lyrically-wise, another really interesting creation of MM is delivered here, I really like this second verse, somewhat creepy although emphasizing the futility that lies within some people's lives....if not all.
