The Dailey Dose; Small Town Girl with Big City Dreams

sydney1 300LEXINGTON, Ky. (11/14/13) — If you were to close your eyes and listen to Syndey Cubit sing, you would be amazed when you opened them. At only 15 years old, she has soul and passion behind her voice that can be heard a mile away. A sophomore at Henry Clay High School, Sydney started singing in a choir around the age of 7 and picked up a guitar for the first time when she was 9. After that, things started to make sense for the young vocalist.

“I write all of my songs and do a few covers every now and then,” Cubit said, “I like to write about what is going on in my life. It’s hard to not write about the things I may be going through because that’s all I really am thinking about.”

Four years ago when Cubit was in the sixth grade, she did her first show at Busters in Lexington.

“I had performed in front of a few people before then, but getting on the stage was a whole new experience for me,” Cubit said, “My favorite part is meeting people who have listened to my songs and support me. I think that’s the best because they make me feel like all of my hard work is paying off.”

Now four years later, Cubit confesses that there is nothing better than performing with musicians that are just as passionate about music as her.

“I opened for Norah Jones and played with Elliot Collett and those were probably my favorite shows,” Cubit said. “They are great musicians and I could relate and admired their energy.”

Sooner than later we will see Cubit’s name as she makes great strides to accomplish her dreams.

“Of course I want to go to college but I also see myself writing with a few people from Nashville before then and, hopefully, get out a few more singles and another music video,” Cubit said, “I don’t know where the music will lead me in the future but I’m ready for it.”

At such a young age, Cubit has already accomplished so much. Those include the 2011 Tennessee Country and Gospel Music Association’s “New Country Vocalist and Songwriter of the Year” and the 2012 National Association of Country Music International’s “Most Promising New Songwriter” and “Vocalist of the Year” awards.

“I’m not wishing my youth away, I’m enjoying my time in high school while also making myself a better musician every day,” Cubit said.

Cubit will spend the winter months writing songs and networking and will begin to schedule shows at the beginning of next year.
