ABOUT

I am a singer/songwriter & actor who has been in and out of the music scene from coast to coast: San Francisco, Los Angeles; Miami. and New York City. My lyrics are laced with romance and mystical nuances that are simply a masquerade of my relationship with the cosmos! Music and art from all over the world inspires me. I love crossing genres of jazz standards, and vintage pop with a bit of blues that swings! Cheers, Sylvia
*I am currently seeking musicians to work with her on various projects (including a musical documentary of the evolution of the vamp through songs). pilarbydesign
Review:
Ms. Pilar’s sound is a unique mix of old and new. She softly scats across genres tasting new flavors from jazz standards and vintage pop to more contemporary lounge rhythms. Her jazzy tones reflect her diversity and love for various musical styles. She incorporates state of the art technology and integrates it with old school concepts. Like everything about Sylvia, her song collections are classic, and timeless yet hip and modern with her own spice to the songs that ooze with total sophistication and can transition into a dance groove that gets the party on the dance floor.
Sylvia has registered two songbooks with the Library of Congress, and produced her debut CD album: “Seduxion", a collection of songs that includes writing and producing credits: a perfect blend of sweet spins on old, soothing vintage classics & flowing trance vibes. Ms. Pilar is a true spirit of a quintessential “RENAISSANCE WOMAN"! … review by A.Campbell
