"York's sound blends Metric's indie guitar pop and the sexy playfulness of Hawksley Workman" -- CHARTAttack

From the opera stage and the ranks of a military band into indie music, Sidney York is proof that band geeks are cool.

Revered for her abilities as an enigmatic vocalist, guitarist, keyboardist, ukelele and French horn player as well as an unyielding Do It Yourself mentality, in three brief years York has levelled the world of music with a stunning independence exemplified on her eponymous 2009 debut. A rousing bastion of haunting melodies, insightful lyrics and innate creativity, Sidney York epitomizes the union of inspired creativity, dexterous ability and arresting longevity.

At that, York prepares to obliterate all previous expectations, connotations and anticipation with sophomore opus Apocalyptic Radio Cynic. Created with like-minded visionaries including producers Ryan Guldemond (Mother Mother, Hannah Georgas), Josh Rob Gwilliam (Ghosts Of Modern Man, Michael Bernard Fitzgerald) and Russell Broom (Jann Arden, The Dudes) and mixed by Howard Redekopp (The New Pornographers, Mother Mother, Hannah Georgas), Apocalyptic Radio Cynic captures York at her purest, most unadulterated and sublime.

With a host of bestowments including Best Untapped Newcomer at the Calgary Folk Fest, featured rotation on the Bravo channel's video playlist as well as 150 live shows across Canada in a single year—booked and arranged autonomously, York's prowess and dedication are more than paying off. She has played the Calgary Folk Fest, South Country Fair, and Mountain View Music Fest, and has shared the stage with notable performers Chad VanGaalen, Ridley Bent, Fred Eaglesmith and Michael Bernard Fitzgerald.

"Dick & Jane", the first single off of Sid's album "Apocalyptic Radio Cynic," has quickly moved up and held on to the 16th spot on Vancouver's Peak 100.5 FM top 30 playlist. The single is in rotation on CBC Radio One, CBC Radio 3, The Peak 100.5FM (Vancouver), UP!97.7FM (Calgary), CKDU (Halifax), and CJSF (Burnaby).

"[Dick & Jane] is insanely catchy—I bet you'll find yourself whistling along at random points during your day." --3AM Revelations, on Sid's single 'Dick & Jane'

"[Dick & Jane]'s got me smiling, dancing, whistling, singing, bobbing, weaving and building Lego all at the same time." --More Than a Feeling, on Sid's single 'Dick & Jane
