MANILA, Philippines – Singer-songwriter Syd Hartha is bringing her soulful, folk-pop music to Rappler HQ.
The 18-year-old started making music when she was 12 years old, learning how to play the guitar, keyboards, and ukulele without any formal training.
She then became a social media darling, catching the internet’s attention doing covers of songs like Khalid’s “Young, Dumb & Broke” and Itchyworms’ “‘Di na Muli.”
As people started to listen, Syd released her own music, including the hit song “tila tala,” which currently counts over 4 millions streams on Spotify.
The song was followed up with the release of “iglap,” which saw her working with producer Nick Lazaro.
Syd proved she isn’t afraid to take on touchy social issues in 2019, when she released “ayaw,” a song about abuse and consent.
Catch Syd and get to know more about her music as she performs on Rappler Live Jam on Thursday, March 5. – Rappler.com
