Sydnee Carter is a 17 year old indie/folk/contemporary singer/songwriter from Perth, Western Australia. Sydnee had basic guitar lessons for about a year, but taught herself from that point on and was in-charge of her own musical learning and development without vocal coaching since she purchased her first acoustic guitar at age 7. Sydnee came to media attention after reaching the live auditions of X Factor Australia 2014. I caught up with her by phone to see how it was going now she was ‘launched’.
I’ve uploaded the most incredible podcast – The No Frills Twins have been brave enough to record a song and video called Dying To Be Thin, about people struggling with eating disorders and body dysmorphia. They approached this serious topic so professionally, by not only starting the conversation, but by including their personal and motivational messages. From understanding the self deprecation and pressure placed upon us , from the dictated perceptions of beauty in our world today. Confirming that taking care of your health, is far more important than following the pre packaged delusions, that are being injected into our minds. Beauty can take many forms, it has been said that “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder” thus hold yourself in high regard, because you are beautiful.
