About Sylvan De La Cruz
Sylvan De La Cruz is an indie-pop and jazz singer/songwriter from Los Angeles. He is a self taught musician, with a classic pop style that's influenced by everyone from Brian Wilson, Jackson Brown, and the Carpenters, to 90s Brit Pop, and other British artists like the Smiths, Keane and Florence & the Machine.
He writes melodic vocal lines, with catchy, sweeping choruses, with lyrics that express thoughtful and passionate messages of hope, perseverance, and our connection with nature, with occasional romantic musings.
Most recently, Sylvan has been singing with Life Choir gospel choir directed by his music mentor composer/arranger H. B. Barnum (Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles, Motown Records, Capitol Records) with whom he has performed everywhere from the Walt Disney Concert Hall to small churches in South LA.
His 3rd single Ocean Rise was released November 6, 2020.
