“Timeless and aggressively up-to-date London grit with Nashville dirt underpinned by deeply rooted Americana song craft” – Rock Box
Winners of the 2018 Future Music Showcase Award, American singer songwriter David Eastman (vocals/guitar) formed SYDN in Kentish Town, London, where he found Simon (bass/vocals), Michael (drums) and Dan (lead guitar/vocals) hiding in a dark rehearsal space, ready to do justice to his songs of love gone awry and families gone rogue. When not writing, Dave spends his time managing medical relief in the world’s worst war zones.
