Syd Masters


Syd Masters is an award winning singer and songwriter of traditional western music. He takes pride in doing his part in keeping the old west alive through traditional cowboy music and songwriting. Syd is the author and recording artist of The Official State Song of New Mexico and the 2011 Academy of Western Artists Male Vocalist of the Year. The Western Music Association, Academy of Western Artists and The New Mexico Music Industry have combined to nominate him for more than 40 awards over the past 15 years. "Vocalist of the Year," "Country Song of the Year," "Best Album," Best Band," Most Humorous Song," and "Best Song" are some of the categories in which he was victorious.

Earlier this century the U.S. Department of State named him Cultural Ambassador for his work entertaining the secret service departments of 26 foreign countries in the Diplomatic Security Antiterrorism Assistance Program. Syd has been seen on television commercials and billboards throughout the west as spokesman for the Powerball Lottery Campaign. His original compositions have been used in numerous film productions ranging from documentaries and television broadcasts to the recent Universal Studios motion picture "Paul" where he can also be seen as an actor in the film. He and his Swing Riders are a multi-talented, thoroughly funny, hard touring, high energy cowboy band out to save vintage western music one two-step at a time!
