The new songs Sylvie is recording include several that she has played at recent shows – including “Keep Dancing,” “Nothing,” “Creation Day,” “Waiting For The Shadows,” “Imaginary Boy” and more.

Sylvie will also be doing a few shows in the Tucson area. Please see the tour page for details.

Howe SS billboard copySylvie reunited with Howe Gelb –  the legendary founder and front-man of Giant Sand who produced Sylvie – and bass player  Thoger Lund, who played alongside Howe on Sylvie’s album – for two shows in California. The first was in Big Sur at the Henry Miller Library, where Sylvie performed a Leonard Cohen show soon after the release of  her book I’m Your Man: The Life of Leonard Cohen in 2012. The second show was at  San Francisco venue The Chapel – here’s a brief review of the show in Bay Bridged.

In-between shows, Sylvie played Howe ten of her new songs, which he now has on his iPhone. They’re hoping to record her second album together later this year.
