Now based in Nashville, Alberta's Sykamore is equal parts country and pop, mixing intimate reflection and empathetic storytelling with instantly memorable hooks and sing-along choruses that capture emotion of listeners of all ages and backgrounds. Her latest single is called "Go Easy On Me". Praised by Music Row as a “winner,” and named a “rising talent” by CMT who also included her in the Next Women of Country in 2020, Sykamore’s debut EP, California King, was released in April 2020. American Songwriter described the collection as, “a five-song breeze which is as relatable and funny as it is intimate and personal.” Her biggest break came in 2016 when songwriting heavyweight and country artist Rhett Akins ("That Ain't My Truck", etc) came across her music on Twitter. “I read her name, I was curious,” Rhett said in an interview. “I saw her face, I was intrigued. I heard her voice, I was done.” At Akins’ invitation, Sykamore joined the roster of Home Team Publishing (which Akins founded along with his son, country star Thomas Rhett and Roc Nation/Warner Chappell) and relocated to Nashville in 2017. There, she released her first EP, Self + Medicine, which accumulated more than 1.6 million on-demand audio streams.
