Raised on a steady diet of folk staples including Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, and Joan Baez, rock and roll music such as The Who, The Beatles, REM, and The Eagles and classic country like Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, and Eddy Arnold, Sylvia Rose Novak grew up surrounded by music. As a teenager, Novak fell in love with grunge and pop-punk. You can hear subtle hints of bands like Jimmy Eat World and Pearl Jam in her current music.
Novak excelled at any instrument put in front of her, but has always considered herself a bassist above all. She started playing at the age of 12, taking jazz and rock lessons at the local guitar shop, and continued to play in various classes and programs through high school as well as in her friends’ bands. Throughout her adult life, she’s been a go-to-bassist in the Birmingham, AL music scene and fronts her band as her own bass player.
