Susie is a young singer-songwriter based in Bristol and Cambridge. She released her debut record in 2017; the five-track EP called ‘Scrapbook’, was recorded at Lukas Drinkwater’s Everyone Sang Studio, and was made possible thanks to a Kickstarter funding campaign.
Born with a love of song, Susie first discovered a passion for performing while studying Musical Theatre at school, and through singing lessons enforced by her parents which, to her surprise, she found she enjoyed.
After being introduced to the ukulele by friends, she soon bought her own… and another one… and another one…!
Susie was soon on stage at her local folk club and began to fall in love with traditional song, to complement her existing contemporary musical tastes… and thus, her unique style was born. More recently, she has also started to write original songs inspired by the people and processes she encounters in the world around her.
The folk scene in Bristol began to sit up and take notice, and Susie soon found herself opening for the likes of Jim Moray, Gilmore & Roberts, Hattie Briggs, Jimmy Aldridge and Sid Goldsmith, Sam Carter, Said The Maiden, Claudia Schwab and Sam Kelly and The Lost Boys, as well as performing at Bristol Folk Festival, Folk On The Water, Keynsham Music Festival, Bristol Fringe and a host of local events.
