Syd, a 21-year-old singer/songwriter, will perform from 8:30-10:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 5, at the University of Nebraska at Kearney Nebraskan Student Union.
Syd is said to evoke the mood and melody of his influences, ranging from Ani Difranco and Pearl Jam to Metallica and Dave Matthews.

In the last year, Syd has played for clubs, colleges and festivals, including Nashville River Stages and the House of Blues. He had more than 50 dates on his fall 2003 college tour and has sold thousands of CD’s at live shows and on the web.
