Sid Seth is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who forms a blissful blend of soul and pop into his truly unique repertoire. Originally from India, he moved to New York five years ago to study at the Manhattan School of Music, and has been pursuing music in the city ever since.

Working alongside producer Kris Crawford (Ariana Grande, Shawn Mendes, Josh Groban), and Grammy winning mastering engineer Alex Psaroudakis, his next single “Caffeine High” came to life. Exploring the vibrance of the city that never sleeps, Sid’s latest tune came to fruition with spontaneity and excitement at its core. He explains, “This was written in New York. Of course, it changes everything! This song is a happy vibe however the pre-story may not necessarily be. NY is quite challenging at times and the most bustling city in the world can be quite secluded and lonely sometimes. I call it the heart-attack life. The lows are crazy and so are the highs.”

Growing up, his mom introduced him to The Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel, Boney M and Abba, while Sid’s dad introduced him to the rhythm and melodies of Bollywood, Hindustani Folk Music and Indian Classical music. Paired with the soul-inspired tones of Michael Jackson and Ella Fitzgerald, Sid’s enriching sound can be attributed to his vast musical influences. Taking a more light-hearted approach to its predecessors, “Caffeine High” packs the perfect punch. Ear worm hooks and funky melodies make you want to dance, whilst his lyricism provokes thought and hope. He continues, “The word high was probably in the back of my head. And, I wasn’t really a big coffee drinker – at least not a New York coffee person (in terms of the quantity). For some reason, I started having 3-4 cups of coffee. I guess all of that triggered it and I wrote Caffeine High. I was laughing when I came up with that song title. It made me smile, which was exactly the vibe I wanted for the song, so I stuck with it.” 

Narrating chronicles from fun nights in the city, unexpected encounters, and the vibrancy of having fun, this funky, dance-inspired ode to New York overflows with euphoria. It’s Sid’s hope that listeners will feel the passion too. The tremendous energy he possesses makes him a trailblazer of this time, with resonance and humbling authenticity shining through every second of this next offering. 

Sid has performed in various venues in New York City, such as the Rockwood Music Hall, the Bowery Electric, Feinstein’s 54 Below, and the Green Room, as well as multiple cities in India. Sid has gained humbling acclaim from the likes of Earmilk, Variance, Atwood and Opera News, amongst many others. Garnering thousands of streams across his repertoire, we are set to see extraordinary things from Sid. The coffee is ready to be served.
