Sinclair is the sixth of nine children raised by a considerably strict pastor in upstate New York. With such a large family and rather stifling upbringing, music quickly became her everyday escape. After testing the waters in New York City and LA, Sinclair picked up in 2011 and chose Nashville as her home. It was there that she quickly honed her musical skills and dove into learning multiple instruments, while writing and recording her critically-acclaimed debut EP, Sweet Talk.
Produced by John Alagia (John Mayer) and Nolan Sipe (Andy Grammar), the EP featured a standout song, “This Too Shall Pass,” which has over 12 million streams on Spotify to date. Her follow-up EP, CLRBLND premiered in 2016 on TeenVogue.com and opened doors for her to perform alongside top acts such as: Ke$ha, Claude Kelly & Chuck Harmony (Louis York), Max Frost and Mike Posner.
This year Sinclair has focused her efforts on traveling and creating new music in ultra-dynamic cities like London, Berlin and New York. She’s recently released two singles produced and recorded by Sacha Skarbek (Joss Stone, Lana Del Rey, James Blunt, etc…) in London, “Shy Love” & “Obsession” and will release “Pop! Champagne” before the holidays!
Sinclair prides herself on creating musical experiences that mirror life — dark and methodical tones, with uplifting bursts of colorful brightness and feel good energy. She lives in Nashville, Tennessee with her wife, a painter & stylist, and credits their marriage for her daily dose of inspiration and excitement.
