Sylvia Zanelli Simon
Who I Am
First and foremost, I sing - always have - always will - as long as there's a breath in me.
Air in - notes out.
Over the years I've had the pleasure of collaborating with some of the finest musicians in South Florida, from duos to small orchestras, as lead vocalist entertaining at private parties, weddings and corporate events from the finest country clubs to the Governor's Club and Kravis Center. Additional projects included recording demos for songwriters in Criteria Studios Miami, Echo Beach Studios Jupiter as well as private studios. The genres covered include Pop, Classic Rock, Disco, Blues, Standards, R&B, Motown and Country, including performances in English, Spanish, Italian, Latin and Japanese.
In the spring of 2018, Freelance was formed with the multi-talented guitarist Pete Seely. Our extensive repertoire includes a selection of classic rock, country, blues and jazz standards. Please see the FREELANCE page to learn more.
For several years I have performed with world class pianist, Kresimir "Roberto" Voca. Mr. Voca is a classically trained pianist from Croatia who has performed throughout Europe. In addition to piano, Mr. Voca plays accordion, guitar and sings in English, Italian, German, Russian and Croatian. His charismatic style and international flair are second to none.
Most recently I've had the privilege of collaborating virtually with an extraordinary guitarist, Chris Foss. Check us out on the video page!
When I was a kid I started playing guitar just so I could sing. I'm still a kid playing guitar so I can sing - 6 and 12 string acoustic-electric and ukulele.
Congas, Shakers, Rain Stick, Tambourine - Anything to enhance the rhythm.
