Elle Magazine’s Women in Music 2014 Impressive: Singer-songwriter Sidney Thompson 2015 Update


Elle magazine annually honors standout female music artists. And in 2014 the line up was interesting, diverse and impressive. With singer-songwriter Sidney Thompson’s album “Light,” released in 2015, here’s hoping Elle will take notice.

In Elle’s 2014 music issue, Angel Haze, whom the magazine refers to as “The Outlaw,” feels that her recent music was as if she “…came out of the gate projectile vomiting my demons all over the place, it felt like immediately a weight had been lifted.” Iggy Azalea is “The Rap Renegade” yet says she is moving beyond just “giving a voice to brash girls” and hinted that she may be revealing more personal elements in her new music, whereas before the lyrics and music were just “an escape.” Foxes says when asked how to classify her style of music, “it’s whatever comes naturally” and that “it’s just music.” Cher makes a bold comeback as a “don’t-call-me-a-legend-or-icon” and says she hates labels. She requests of her fans, “just call me Cher.” Others featured are 80’s pop icon, Neneh Cherry, who is also making a long-awaited comeback; country darling Kacey Musgraves; the bold, talented Britt, Lily Allen; the unique and highly talented all –female band, Warpaint; the inspiring uber-talented Jetta, former teen sitcom actor turned mega-hit star, Ariana Grande, and the sultry “electro-soul starlet” Banks.

Sidney Thompson began her singing and songwriting career at the age of fifteen. Surprisingly, with little training, Sidney began churning out enough original songs to launch an album before she turned sixteen. Now twenty, she says her new album, LIGHT is a “reflection of my growth both personally and professionally.” And her title song “Light“ is based upon my personal journey coming out of a dark time in my life.”

“Light” is available on iTunes, CD Baby and various other music platforms. Visit www.SidneyThompson.com/light to view “Light”, the music video and to listen to excerpts from each song.
