Stock photo

From 1959 to 1974, she was half of the popular folk duo Ian & Sylvia with Ian Tyson.[7][8] The two met after a friend of Tyson's heard her sing at a party and let Ian know about her; Tyson had been performing in Toronto clubs as a solo artist, but after he and Fricker met, they decided to work together as a duo.[9] From the late 1960s to the early 1970s, she and Ian Tyson also fronted the country rock band Great Speckled Bird.

Sylvia wrote her first and best-known song "You Were on My Mind" in 1962. It was recorded by Ian & Sylvia in 1964.[10] The song has been covered extensively,[11] and became a hit single in the mid-1960s for the San Francisco-based folk-rock band We Five and also for the British pop singer Crispian St. Peters.

Fricker married Ian Tyson on 26 June 1964.[12] During their years together they recorded 13 albums.[4]

The Tysons were divorced in 1975.[13] During their marriage, they had one child, Clayton Dawson (Clay) Tyson.[14]

Later career

After the Tysons separated and stopped performing together in 1975, Sylvia started a solo career;[4] she released two albums through Capital Records, Woman's World in 1975 and Cool Wind from the North in 1976.[15] She then established an independent record label, Salt Records, in the early 1980s.[16] Through this label she released the albums, Satin on Stone in 1978 and Sugar for Sugar in 1979.[15]

Sylvia Tyson contributed offstage to the Canadian music scene as a board member of FACTOR and the Juno Awards. With Tom Russell, she was an editor of the 1995 anthology And Then I Wrote: The Songwriter Speaks (ISBN 9781551520230).[16] In 2011, she wrote her first novel, a 420-page book entitled Joyner's Dream
