A Rock Star and Her Fiance Get a Surprise Makeover
“I wish that I could be like the cool kids,” sings Sydney Sierota on Cool Kids, the 2013 double-platinum-selling single she and her brothers released with their band, Echosmith. She was just 16 at the time. Now, more than five years and many more popular songs later, and with a new Echosmith album in the works, she has ascended beyond cool-kid status to that of enviable globe-trotting rock star.
The 21-year-old recently got engaged to Cameron Quiseng, a former bassist with the pop rock band Allstar Weekend. As an engagement gift, Sydney’s parents, Linda Sierota and Jeffery David, who are also her manager and producer, respectively, decided to surprise their daughter and future son-in-law with a makeover of the one-bedroom apartment that’s attached to their 1920s Spanish Revival house in Pasadena, California. “We thought that this would be a great opportunity to make things a little more friendly to a young married couple,” Linda says.
