new music: folk singer-songwriter sye elaine spence releases new single ‘1964’ – a tribute to her grandmother

May 11, 2015

Listen to the new single from Atlanta based folk singer-songwriter Sye Elaine Spence, ‘1964’ – a tribute to her grandmother who she grew up with. Spence states, “I was lucky enough to grow up with her in our home, and as early as I can remember, she would tell me countless stories of her youth. She would describe it as a time where love was pure and joyful. She spoke with this really sweet nostalgia about her and her girlfriends ‘bathing’ at the beach after school, playing jacks and watching netball. My favorites are the stories she shared about her first love, being picked up in his blue VW beetle, listening to music, going dancing.” Check out the song here and listen to the title track from her latest EP, ‘Bloom’, below.
