As an in-demand singer/songwriter, Sylvia Gordon has been tapped by Black Eyed Peas, Kelis, Moby, William Orbit, Spank Rock and Benny Benassi to collaborate with them. On her solo project, Betty Black, the southern gothic chanteuse brings to life haunting melodies and romantic lyrics, intentionally rough around the edges and ripe for remix experimentation. Her Too Much To Resist: Slow Dance EP is a sparkling collection spanning everything from dubstep, house, electronic and indie-dance. Part 1 features Richard Morel and Ganga takes on “Spring Blossoms”, Nate Mars and D’Wave’s “Low Tide Lullaby” and Matt Max on “Came Home Cryin’”.
“In a perfect world, Black would be your new favorite diva, as she has all of the pop friendliness.but grounded in a restless musicality that sees her constantly trying new things, never content to follow a formula.” - PopMatters
‘”Gordon’s voice, reminiscent of Zola Jesus and Bat for Lashes, cuts like a sensuous blade right to your core.” – Spinner
“Spine-tingling…an exotic blend of Julie London, Lena Horne and Dusty Springfield, with a Dinah Washington snarl lurking just beneath the velveteen surface for good measure” - My Old Kentucky Blog
