Versatility: Sylvan Esso


Consider this:

Vs. this:


A band’s ability to be versatile in their musicianship is key; when a band is able to do that, they harness the attention of a varied fan base and thus a larger fan base. Sylvan Esso finds its roots in Amelia, a previous member of folk band Mountain Man. After joining forces with Nick (the producer) to fuse her champion folk voice with electronic minimalist beats the two created something entirely unique and special. However, they are able to untie this fusion with the above performances and many more like them. This versatility is not only impressive, but it suggests a necessity for musicians to expand outside of their niche. This especially rings true when one see just how much success this band has received since releasing their single “Coffee” and their debut album.
