Syd Straw is an actress, producer, singer and songwriter who’s worked Emmylou Harris, Rickie Lee Jones, Wilco, Golden Palominos and Los Lobos. She tries to love everyone, especially dogs.
Straw is an enormously gifted vocalist and songwriter who has her own distinct musical vision. She made a name for herself as part of the Golden Palominos, a band led by Anton Fier that enjoyed a cult following in the 1980s.
Her Capricorn Records debut, War and Peace, was released in 1996. Since then, her unique blend of folk-rock and blues-rock has found a home with Triple A (adult album alternative) radio stations and their audiences around the country.
Straw released Surprise in 1990 to good reviews. That recording chronicled Straw’s emergence as a songwriter. She had thought of herself primarily as a song interpreter before that. On Surprise, Straw was joined by Michael Stipe (R.E.M.), John Doe (X), Ry Cooder, Daniel Lanois, Don Was, Richard Thompson and Marshall Crenshaw.
