Wicked Sycamore is an all female trio hailing from the DC/ Baltimore area. They can be described as contemporary folk with a mischievous edge that is grounded in traditional and roots music but branches out into jazz, blues, Americana, soul, funk, folk, rock, bluegrass, pop, and more. They write original music ranging from fun and light-hearted sing-alongs to deep, introspective melodic tunes for the ages. No matter the genre, their music relies heavily on thoughtful arrangement, instrumental prowess, and intricate vocal harmonies.
The women of Wicked Sycamore have been playing music together since 2015. Their musical journey began as members of an electric band that played rock, funk, and blues. They soon realized that they shared a desire to explore acoustic interests in a more intimate ensemble. As a trio, their music is driven largely by blending the familiar and traditional with the daring and unexpected. Each member is a multi-instrumentalist who brings a unique background and influence to their sound, highlighting their musicality and progressive songwriting.
Wicked Sycamore has played around the Mid-Atlantic region at various venues, as well as festivals such as The Ladybug Festival, DOAH Festival, Takoma Park Folk and Street Festivals, and have appeared on local television and radio stations such as 89.7 WTMD, 94.3 WOWD, and Fox5 DC News.
