Syd’s Background: Perhaps the most exuberant and fun-loving of the film’s characters, Syd came right out of the life of Brother Love, a working musician who inspires his good friend Daniel to face his struggles through his art.

Director on Brother Love/Syd: "Brother Love is probably the most similar to his character in real life. He brought incredible energy into the rehearsal room, along with a warm, supportive presence at all the right moments. He and Jeremy Schonfeld hit it off so well that by the end of the first day it was as if they had been friends since childhood. Their friendship became a wonderful part of the story."

His solo albums, "Album of the Year" and "Turn It Up!", gained large-scale recognition as he helped pioneer Podsafe music. Primarily as a featured guest on the #1 comedy Podcast Radio Show- Keith and the Girl (www.katg.com).
