Sylvia Kay is a bright new talent from Caledon East; the Ontario-based artist captures a heady mix of emotions in her new single, “Legacy.” As a child, Sylvia Kay had terrible stage fright, but with the help of some beloved music teachers, Lisa and Nick Carione at INKey Music Studio, she overcame her shyness. Ten years later, the stage feels like her home, and she is a Music Minister at her parish and writes music any chance she gets.
Favourite musician growing up:
There are so many amazing musicians, but Taylor Swift always stuck out to me!
Favourite musician now:
Still Taylor Swift and since quarantine I’ve really started to love Kelsea Ballerini

A prayer and a cup of Earl Grey Tea
Favourite local musician:
I personally love Alessia Cara! I will never forget watching her perform at the Grammy’s a few years ago and all I could think about was how cool she was!
EP or LP?:
Not at the moment but hoping to work towards one in 2023!
Early bird or night owl?:
Definitely a night owl
Road or studio?
I haven’t been given the opportunity to be on the road with my music but I hope to in the future! However, in my limited experience working in the studio sparks so much creativity!
