Connected to Self /// Sydney Lauren /// Part2:EP149

What does 'being connected with self' actually look like…feel like? It’s impossible to describe, as we explore with Sydney in part 2 of this conversation. Whether or not we can describe it, what is true from this conversation is that vulnerability and the willingness to express it with yourself and others is a big step in finding that connection. Once she was willing to be vulnerable with her music it all changed, and her music went to a new level. /// Today, we are with singer/songwriter Sydney Lauren. SYDNEY TELLS STORIES THROUGH HER SONGS. SHE GREW UP SINGING AND WRITING MUSIC JUST OUTSIDE OF NEW YORK CITY, THE PLACE SHE NOW CALLS HOME. THE CITY SERVES AS HER INSPIRATION AS WELL AS HER STOMPING GROUNDS, AND SHE HAS PERFORMED IN NYC VENUES LIKE THE DELANCEY & THE BITTER END. SYDNEY’S TRAINING IN PIANO, GUITAR AND SONGWRITING ARE CLEARLY REFLECTED IN HER SONGS, WHICH TAKE INSPIRATION FROM SOME OF HER FAVORITE ARTISTS INCLUDING JP SAXE, SARAH BAREILLES, INGRID ANDRESS, AND MORE. HER MUSIC HAS BEEN FEATURED ON “TEMPTATION ISLAND” AND "THE BIGGEST LOSER" ON USA NETWORK. SYDNEY’S NEW ERA OF MUSIC REPRESENTS A CHAPTER IN HER LIFE LYRICALLY, AND HER AUTHENTIC VISION SONICALLY. SHE DIVES INTO THE EMOTIONS THAT OCCUR DURING HEARTBREAK AND THE SIMPLISTIC HAPPINESS THAT CAN COME WITH LOVE. NEW YORK CITY WILL ALWAYS PLAY AN IMPORTANT ROLE IN HER MUSIC, WHETHER IT’S A STREET SHE REFERENCES OR THE SUBWAY HOME. SHE’S A STORYTELLER AT HEART AND HOPES TO SING WORDS YOU WERE THINKING BUT DIDN’T KNOW HOW TO SAY. /// Topics we discuss: • How she got good at her Music o Accepting that she is good at it o Music built her confidence • Tracking Downloads and attention • Being vulnerable through her music • Turning Around a bad mood • Creating music that resonates with people • Understanding Self References: • Harkness Method • Nodes Scene from Pitch Perfect • Her song Bucket Hat • Sydney Lauren.com Credits: Lead editor + Producer: Ruf Holmes Music: Main Theme: "Eaze Does It" by Shye Eaze and DJ Rufbeats, a More In Common Podcast Exclusive. /// More In Common Website | https://www.moreincommonpod.com/ Instagram | https://www.instagram.com/moreincommonpod Twitter | https://twitter.com/MoreInCommonPod Facebook | https://www.facebook.com/moreincommonpod /// Dope Merch | https://www.moreincommonpod.com/shop /// Description tags | more in common, podcast, education, Sydney Lauren, Music, vulnerability /// #tension #awareness #harkness #trouble #intention #honesty #Truth #facts #acceptance #Music #storytelling #confidence #encouragement #belief #passion #vulnerability #relatability #connection #compassion #love

Drunk Words aren’t Sober Thoughts /// Sydney Lauren /// Part1:EP149

What is a fact? A fact is something that is true. Yet, today we are so conflicted about our facts because we have decided to conflate them with truth. Truth is subjective. What is true to you may not be true to me. You may think The Matrix is the greatest cinematic accomplishment of the 20th century. I may think that award belongs to Schindler’s List. What isn’t true is that either sentiment is a fact. This is merely an opinion one holds. However, we have the tendency to think of our truths as facts and it can create serious issues connecting with others and navigating conversation. We explore this reality with Sydney in part 1 of our awesome conversation with her. /// Today, we are with singer/songwriter Sydney Lauren. SYDNEY TELLS STORIES THROUGH HER SONGS.
