Sylvie Lewis

"Translations" is a slim, delicate volume in 11 chapters, which recounts the adventures of the heart and mind undertaken by Sylvie Lewis since the acclaimed release of her debut album Tangos & Tantrums. 

Sylvie Lewis released "Tangos & Tantrums" in 2005. The lead track, "By Heart", featured in the hit US TV series "Grey's Anatomy" and she played various US festivals and toured extensively. Sylvie debuted at London's Ronnie Scott's; The Word magazine named Tangos & Tantrums one of "The 10 Best Albums of 2005" and their estimable David Hepworth wrote that "(Tangos & Tantrums) is the most ingratiating new friend I've made this year". Charlie Gillett had Sylvie in for a live session on BBC London and she was played on Radio 2 by Bob Harris and Helen Mayhew.

Sylvie left LA and her long-standing relationship behind, relocated to Barcelona and then Rome. Her multifarious adventures along the way provided the basic ingredients (and spices) for the writing of "Translations" which was produced, back in the City of Angels, by everyone's new fave singer/songwriter, Richard Swift, and Elijah Thompson. As Sylvie writes on the sleeve: "The events and characters depicted here are real. Any similarity to actual persons, living or dead, is purely intentional and in no way a coincidence".

Translations contains 11 new Sylvie Lewis creations that continue the high standards set by Tangos & Tantrums and mark her out as a unique and timeless new talent.
