LA native Sydney Bennett started making music as a teenager, eventually connecting online with Tyler, the Creator and joining up with his Odd Future collective. Bennett found early success as Syd Tha Kyd producing tracks and DJing on tour for the collective. Eager to explore her own creativity, Bennett founded the Internet, an electronic soul project, in 2010 with fellow OF affiliate Matt Martians. By 2015, the band had released three albums and earned a Grammy nomination. That’s when Bennett, now known simply as Syd, began her third act – as a solo artist and songwriter. In 2017, she released her debut studio album Fin.
