Sylvette are a 5 piece art-rock band based in Manchester and met whilst studying at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester . The band formed after a chat between Charlie Sinclair -lead singer/guitarist and Ashley Garrod -bass in a pub and they found they had many shared influences. All hailing from different musical backgrounds, each member draws from unique influences to give Sylvette an identity completely its own. Think the raw, yearning melodies of Led Zeppelin and Jeff Buckley supported by the bold sounds of Bjork and Aphex Twin, all fused together by the disturbing poetry of Neutral Milk Hotel. Philippos Rousiamanis -violin and keys, Peter Leaver-drummer, Jack March- guitar, complete the dynamic line-up.
