Sylvia (Country)

Growing up in Kokomo, IN, Sylvia moved to Nashville around Christmas of 1975 with a definite game plan: get a job as a secretary, get to know influential people in town, and build a career as a recording artist. The plan worked. She picked up a job as the receptionist for Pi-Gem Music, headed by record producer Tom Collins. She started singing on demo sessions, and Collins helped her secure a recording contract with RCA.

Since she'd never performed live before, Sylvia ended up learning to do concerts at the same time she was making hit records. With an engaging voice, a bubbly personality, and a beautiful appearance, Sylvia was practically a marketing dream, and Collins built her sound around catchy melodies and strong backbeats. Songs like "Drifter" (number one, 1981), "The Matador" (1981), "Nobody" (number one, 1982), and "Like Nothing Ever Happened" (1982) became big hits; "Nobody" even crossed over into the pop Top 40. The material was often lyrically shallow, however, and Sylvia grew increasingly frustrated. She left Collins and recorded a pair of albums with record producer Brent Maher. The second was never released. Sylvia, instead, was dropped by RCA in 1987.

She used the opportunity for personal growth (she toured almost constantly during the height of her career and was emotionally drained) and to develop as a songwriter. In 1992, she re-emerged as a touring artist and pursued a recording deal with self-penned material that was inner-directed and uplifting. ~ Tom Roland, Rovi

I got to see her in Casper Wyo. back in the 80's and just loved her. She came off the stage and sang to us on the main level. Wish she didn't slow down.
I had this song memorized at 10 years old and loved it. Still a favorite when I can appreciate the meaning a little more.
I was in the Navy when I discovered Sylvia , fell in love with her and her music! Being a percussionis t myself , I just plain and simply fell in love. Made the West-Pac I was on all the better! Tears come to my eyes because of the memories this brings back.....Tum b l e w e e d - - t h e best!
I love this whole album...I had to pay 200 for the CD because it's so rare...so good I love every song
My favorite singer of ALL TIME!! Does anyone know if she still tours? I would LOVE to see her in concert as I was young when she was in her prime and never got to see her. Nobody is still my favorite song to sing...I knew every word when I was in 4th grade...prob a b l y not the best song for a 4th grader to sing, but it was the first song from the radio that I knew by heart!! Good memories!

The song "Nobody" was such a trying song for me during the last year of my marriage. Since I had a "Nobody" involve in my marriage. This song and a few others were instrumental in my healing process during my divorce. It gave me the sense that someone else had this happen to them. Such a great artist for such a great song.
