” Sandy Kastel is a wonderfully talented vocalist whose style is definitely rooted in the past. Soft and subtle, When I Fall In Love is a beautiful song made even better by Sandy ‘s smooth vocals. On her album, This Time Around, Sandy gives a stellar performance and ends with a terrific rendition of Somewhere Over The Rainbow.” -Bruce Von Stiers, BVS Reviews

“Joie de Vivre” isn’t just a phrase; it’s a way of life.
Sylvie was born and raised in France and imbued from her first breath with music and joy.Trained as a singer and actress, she quickly made a name for herself in Paris and the surrounding province in theatre and music festivals using music and humor to delight audiences and introduce them to her unique brand of charm.

It wasn’t long before her voice and warm, effervescent style wooed Oz, bringing Piaf, Jazz, and American standards Down Under. Once again, she blazed her own trail and became well-known for her distinctive shows and enthusiastic audiences. She participated in a number of major national events, including the Sydney Film Festival She was invited to appear at the Wallabies luncheon– a nationally televised event of the official national Rugby team, where she performed before Prime Minister, John Howard. It was a place of artistic growth that prepared her for her next adventure—moving to New York City
THE U.S.A… MYTHICAL.
She loves the centuries-old friendship and sharing of culture and history; loves that the Statue of Liberty is a symbol of what represents both countries. In New York City she performed on Broadway. She also appeared at “Best of France” in Times Square. After two years in NYC she decided she wanted to sing in Las Vegas and she fell in love with it.
Sylvie currently divides her time performing between New York City, Los Angeles and Las Vegas, her home base.
