Raised in Toronto, ON, Sylo’s (formerly Sylo Nozra) take on
R&B is inspired by his environment. He was born into a Korean family
with religious roots. This inspired him to sing as a child in church
services, leading him to learn several instruments at once. Sylo’s
musical talents were further enhanced by his older sister who played
’90s R&B and hip-hop to full effect.
Once he learned how to apply his inspirations onto his own productions, he became driven to write and perform his own songs. The work has received global recognition, charting virally on both Spotify and Apple, amassing well over 10 million plays. Additionally, his songwriting skills have placed him in studios amongst Grammy-winning/nominated songwriters in Los Angeles, London and Toronto. Sylo‘s debut album will be released in August 2020.
His new single, “Ginny,” is a smooth, groove-driven R&B track about the cycles of addiction.
