Mountain Stage

Sylvie Lewis On Mountain Stage

Loading the player ...
Singer-songwriter Sylvie Lewis makes her third appearance on Mountain Stage, recorded live on the campus of West Virginia University in Morgantown. Lewis is English by birth, but has made her home in Switzerland, Los Angeles, Boston and, lately, Rome. Her wanderlust imparts a worldly sophistication to her lyrics and voice, which call to mind sounds from another era. In this show, Lewis finds a way to sound elegant while sharing an embarrassing story about being on the wrong elevator at the wrong time with the wrong person.
On today's Mountain Stage, Lewis performs solo, transitioning effortlessly from piano to guitar to ukulele. Her silky vocals and slight jazz inflections reside at the forefront of her sound, especially in the hauntingly beautiful "The Song I Sang Before I Met You" and "Give Me the Roses Now." Lewis' most recent album titled is It's All True.
This Mountain Stage performance was originally published on June 13, 2012.
