I recently came across a new band called Message from Sylvia. As with all the bands that come across my desk, I sat down and listened to their debut, self-titled, album. Their album is comprised of ten hard-hitting songs, each one just as good or better than the last. My favorites are: “Heart of War,” “December (Forever),” and “Never Want to See You Again.” They remind me a lot of bands like Red & Gemini Syndrome.
So, who is Message from Sylvia? The band is made up of the Vocalist Matthew Nevitt (from Echolave & DoryDrive), the Lopez-smith brothers Dane, Zach, and Isaac (formally of First Decree). In the industry, many band’s members come and go for all kinds of reasons. It’s because of some of these reasons we now have the sounds of Message from Sylvia.
Formed in 2016 via a phone call from Erik Baker, who connected the Lopez-Smith brothers with Nevitt. What came of it was pure, melodic, rock and roll. This band is extremely well put together. The guitar, bass, and drum sound perfectly in sync and are brought together by the clean, yet hard, vocals from Matt.
I enjoyed the music so much that after I was finished listening to the sample, I logged on to iTunes and purchased the album (which is available now). This is the kind of music you can listen to no matter where you are or what you are doing. I hope to see big things from this band soon. They are currently touring, and I hope to see them on some big festivals, because I see them being a huge hit with the people.
Be sure to check them out on their current tour; which, will be making the following upcoming stops.
