Electronica Meets Pop On Svoy's 'Eclectric'; Check Out Two Tracks Here
It was also at Berklee that Svoy began recording original compositions. Fascinated with many different styles of music, including electronica, R&B and rock, and influenced by artists ranging from Boards of Canada and Prefuse 73 to Me'Shell NdegeOcello and Maxwell, he embraced each influence when writing and producing his new songs.
In 2002, while still in school, he won the BMI Pete Carpenter Fellowship Film Music Competition and spent six weeks studying with the renowned TV composer Mike Post (NYPD Blue, Hill Street Blues, L.A. Law and Law and Order) at his studio in Hollywood. Further affirmation came in his winning of the 2004 BMI John Lennon Songwriting Competition in New York, presented by Yoko Ono.
Armed with his recent achievements and his collection of songs titled Eclectric all written, performed and produced by Svoy, he sent a copy to record label Rendezvous Entertainment and within 2 weeks, got a response back from VP of A&R, Frank Cody. "Svoy is a one-of-a-kind singer/songwriter who uses the palette of electronica to create a vivid, colorful landscape. The melodies are wrapped in complex harmonies and rhythms. The lyrics are often unexpected. We're fortunate to have him in the Rendezvous family," Cody states.
Look for Svoy touring locally in the Northeast this spring with a West Coast tour coming this summer.
