Sybil Thomas is the daughter of the legendary Rufus Thomas, the Stax Records recording artist, who was a famous disc jockey from the WDIA radio in Memphis Tennessee, known for “The Memphis Sound”, and the sister of Carla Thomas.
Her first big break came in the early 70’s when she toured Italy with the distinguished group, The Platters, as the only female singer.
In her career she has worked with other artists as Jeffrey Osborne, Luther Vandross, Phyllis Hyman, and George Duke. She has toured with remarkable artists such as Lou Rawls and The Pointer Sisters. She has toured internationally with many Grammy award winning artists, such as Roberta Flack, Peabo Bryson, and Stevie Wonder.
Sybil’s voice and passion for music has brought down the house in several New York nightclubs, such as, the Apollo Theatre, 7th Avenue South, and Green Street Bar and Café in the Village, as she worked the circuit in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s. Her international hit record, “Rescue Me” and the voice of Raw Silk’s “Do It to the Music”, from West End Records, has stood the test of time and is still on the request list all over Europe.
Sybil’s sole release was the single “Rescue Me” produced by Nick Martinelli & David Todd.
