Sylvia G est une artiste compositrice Suisse. Sa passion dès son plus jeune âge se tourne d'abord vers les animaux. La musique ne viendra que plus tard.

Sa rencontre avec Dave Stewart (Eurythmics) lui donne le goût de l'écriture et l'envie de devenir chanteuse. Par la suite, elle rencontre à Londres un dj anglais (ami du groupe Shamen) et enregistrera à Paris en 2007 son premier titre Waking Up qui recevra un prix pour le meilleur morceau Dance aux USA Songwriting Competition.

En 2010, elle signe avec un label américain et enregistrera plusieurs albums en collaborant avec différents artistes et producteurs, Vinnie Zummo (Joe Jackson) le rapper américain Kuff Knotz, Thad Beaty, Robert Venable (producteur et ancien batteur du groupe Evanescence). En 2010 elle enregistre à Miami, El Corazon, un titre en espagnol avec le producteur américain Robert Venable dans les studios de la chanteuse sud-américaine Gloria Estefan.

En 2015, son troisième album, Overexposed, enregistré entre Los Angeles et Londres avec les producteurs Robert Venable et Stuart Epps et le chanteur Keaton Simmons, sera l'un des albums indies les plus diffusés avec presque un million de streams dans le monde.

L'album Dreams coproduit et enregistré à Los Angeles en 2016 avec le producteur Josh Riccio dont le single est un remix du hit de Fleetwood Mac, a atteint la deuxième place dans les US Adult Contemporary Downloads et la première place dans les Adult Contemporary Streaming Charts.

En 2018, Milow the Girl, désormais Sylvia G, décide de prendre une voie artistique différente et met un terme à sa collaboration avec le label américain chez qui elle était signée depuis 2010. Elle change son nom d'artiste qui ne correspondait plus à son identité artistique et en 2019, collabore avec le label Anglais Right Recordings pour la sortie de son album SOS.

Sylvia G a chanté au festival de Jazz de Montreux (Suisse), Le Réservoir (Paris), Le Whisky à Go-Go (Los Angeles), Laconia Fest (New Hampshire USA où elle fait la première partie de Steven Tyler), North by Northwest (Canada), en Chine et a fait plusieurs tournées aux États Unis.

Sylvia collabore également avec des organisations à but non lucratifs pour lutter contre la cruauté animale.

Having recently supported Steven Tyler of Aerosmith at LaconiaFest in New Hampshire, USA, Sylvia G will be back in the studio in January 2018 to record tracks for a brand new album. The album will be produced by top British record producer Stuart Epps (Elton John, Oasis, Robbie Williams), and released by UK based label Right Recordings later this year.

Sylvia G, formerly Milow The Girl, has led an unusual life. The Swiss artist grew up surrounded by lion cubs, chimpanzees, a baby elephant and a menagerie of exotic wildlife. She travelled the world from a young age, and is fluent in six languages. Her love for animals goes back as far as she can remember, but her venture into music came much later.

Her singing career started in 2007 when her song Waking Up received the award for Best Dance Track at the USA Songwriting Competition. The award helped her to secure live performances at high profile festivals and venues including the Montreux Jazz Festival (Switzerland), the Shanghai International Music Festival (China), Le Reservoir Club (Paris), and the Whiskey A Go-Go (Los Angeles). Two years later she received the award for Best European Singer at the LA Music Awards.

In 2010 she signed to US based label Realize Records. That same year the label released her debut album Days of Power, recorded in Miami with French producer Charlie Nestor. Joe Jackson's guitarist Vinnie Zummo collaborated on some of the tracks.

Her second album 32,000 Feet Above was released in 2012. The album was recorded in Nashville and Los Angeles with award winning producer Robert Venable (former Evanescence drummer, and producer of Megadeth and INXS). It features musicians Kendra Chantelle (American Idol), Thad Beaty (Beyonce, Sugarland), and rapper Kuf Knotz, and produced several successful singles including Beautiful World and Distraction. In 2013 Milow The Girl partnered with Right Recordings to release the single Distraction, remixed by Timothy Allan and Loverush. The song went on to reach Number 14 on the Music Week Commercial Pop Chart.

The following year, the feature film Days of Power, inspired by her Days of Power US tour, was filmed. The movie, a thriller, deals with the horror of puppy mills. In February 2015 Milow The Girl's third album Overexposed was one of the most streamed indie releases, with nearly a million streams worldwide. The album was recorded in Los Angeles and London with producers/songwriters Robert Venable, Keaton Simons and Stuart Epps.

The album Dreams, recorded in 2016, was co-written and produced in Los Angeles by Josh Ricchio. The title track, a remix of the Fleetwood Mac hit, stays true to the original but with its own unique sound. The album reached Number 2 in the US Adult Contemporary downloads charts and Number 1 on the Adult Contemporary streaming chart.

Following the success of Dreams, Sylvia G recorded her fifth studio album SOS in London, with Uk based label Right Recordings.

In April 2021 her uplifting new single Smile was released.

Her New album due out May 2022.
