Sydney James Harcourt was born and raised in Detroit, the unexpected outcome from the chance meeting of a touring jazz pianist and a public school English teacher. Music is in his blood, and eventually his passion and studies in music, dance, and theater led him from Detroit to New York to turn his learning into a living.
Since then he has performed on some of the world’s finest concert stages including Radio City Music Hall, Avery Fischer Hall (with the New York Philharmonic), and Carnegie Hall. He has appeared on and off-Broadway starring in productions like Disney's The Lion King, rocking hard in others like Greenday's American Idiot, and most recently as an original company member of the Broadway phenomenon Hamilton - later taking over the role of Aaron Burr.
You've seen him in films and on TV series - Blue bloods, Younger, The Good Wife, Law and Order, and Disney's Enchanted are a few. He's toured across North America from coast to coast, and played sold out stadiums from Austrailia, to Indonesia, to Puerto Rico.
A sought after New York vocalist, he sang at the US Open Finals, Carmello Anthony's wedding, opened for Donna Summer, worked across the aisle playing both the Republican and Democratic national conventions, and performed at events in most of the legendary ballrooms in New York City including the Rainbow Room, the Plaza Hotel, and the American Museum of Natural History.
