Album Notes
Sylvia's first independent album The Real Story is now available from Red Pony Records. She is, however, no stranger to the music business. Sylvia has recorded for RCA Records Nashville, releasing six albums. "Nobody" was a number #1 song on the country music charts and sold over 2 million singles. She was named 1983 Female Vocalist of the Year by the Academy of Country Music and Grammy Nominee for Best Female Vocalist.

After selling over four million records, scoring several number one hits, and touring incessantly for eight years, Sylvia took a bold step--she stopped touring, stopped recording and went home to Nashville.

"The Real Story isn't a headline, saying this is who I am", she says. "To me, it means the truth comes from more than one point of view. It's not for me to fully define it." As much as anything, The Real Story is about the transition this multi-talented singer/songwriter has gone through over the past few years. Sylvia's reemergence as a recording artist comes after a period of personal growth that has brought her into contact with some of Nashville's finest songwriters and musicians, as well as her own deeper well.

With guitarist/co-producer John Mock lending his exquisite hand and ear, she delves into diverse musical terrain. The album has an acoustic, genuine feel, highlighting Sylvia's warm and clear voice. The songs range from intimate ballads to the up-tempo title song, "The Real Story." She co-writes with well-known tunesmiths Verlon Thompson, Craig Bickhardt, and Kent Robbins.

Sylvia was invited by Rod Kennedy to perform at the Kerrville Folk Festival in May of 1996 and be a part of the songwriter's workshop with Michael Johnson. She has also shared the stage with Arlo Guthrie, Kenny Rogers, Merle Haggard, Alabama and many others. Sylvia's extensive television appearances include Austin City Limits, The Country Music Awards, The Grammy Awards, and the Academy of Country Music Awards.

Sylvia is a native of Indiana, but now lives in Nashville. The Bluebird Cafe in Nashville is her home base, where she performs with her band or with John Mock. John is best known for his work with Kathy Mattea.

During the hectic pace of Sylvia the hit recording artist, Sylvia the songwriter was born. Sylvia is reclaiming her voice and taking it to the public with a new album and new label. The Real Story is the next chapter of her work-in-progress.

Simply a masterpiece!
this long awaited collection of songs is simply put....a masterpiece! Sylvia has shown that her time away from the business was well worth the wait. She is back.....bigger...and badder than ever.

Hashim Ahmad

She is just like being reborn and her new albums this time undoubtedly marked an incredible voice presentations. Her voice is just superfluous and I consider it as a masterpiece .

Sarah Rives

Sylvia adds her slef to new CD
Unlike her past albums Sylvia's latest project The Real Story has her personal touch shinging though out every angle. Weather you are an old or new fan of Sylvia's this album will give you a glimps of who she really is.

God Bless You
Silvia, I am so happy that I have found you finally. I LOVED your music growing up and now have 4 daughters of my own that love your greatest hits cd ( it's the only one i can find on cd ). We turn it up and sing and dance around. I am just so very excited that I have found a place to order your new cd's- I can't wait to surprize them... I am blessed to have a 13 year old daughter named Melanie, she has severe autism and finds alot of "music" irritating but she truly enjoys your cd and plays it so much on her own, you sooth her and make her laugh and dance. Again I am so thrilled to have found you again. I can'twait to order your new cd's but is there anyway I can reorder the older ones as well. I wish you the best of luck and for God to bless you, and I can't wait to hear both your new music and enjoy my old favorites again with my daughters. Donna Mirace Smartnick


Great Stuff
I know a couple of great songs in this Cd titles.
I just can't wait to get a hold of it. A truly comprehensive round up of her achievements.


Awesome CD
Listening to this cd brings such chills up and down my spine. This cd is the greatest cd she has ever put forth at this time. Sylvia shows just how talented she really is by recording this cd. Her voice is so sweet and beautiful and she couldn't have recorded a better cd at this time. I can relate to every song on this wonderful cd and Sylvia feels the same way because if she didn't, we wouldn't have this awesome cd to listen to.
