[dropcap]Sister Suzie hails from the northernmost tip of Northumberland, it was her love of singing R&B that took her first to New Orleans, and then across the UK to Hastings on the East Sussex coast, where she has made her home for the last few years.[/dropcap]
While she was appearing with many bands here and abroad, she made her first solo EP in July 2016. From the session players she hired for that recording Suzie asked guitarist Matt Jackson and drummer Brian Nevill to help form her first band. Soon after bassist Darren ‘Eddie’ Edwards was recruited to complete the core of the group, together with a rotating sax section that has included Mike Paice, John Wallace, Nick Lunt and Aaron Liddard.
Regular appearances in London followed. It was in July 2017, just after their first trip to Europe, that Suzie and the band released their first single on Suzie’s own label. They are currently working on their first album, which should be released this year. Watch out for it!
She’s a little lady with a big voice who’s fresh and energetic on the stage giving everything she has into every note she sings.
