Susanna, from a very early age, started her musical career training as a classical vocalist. Her childhood influences were Irish folk songs and Opera. However, as she became older, she discovered Rock Music, which was to become her first love.
Moving into her teenage years, she started writing and performing her own songs. Her thirst for adventure led her to sing and write in many genres, working with an extensive variety of artists. The influences of Blues, New Wave and Traditional music, make their way into the songs She has written.
She spent ten years in Birmingham, before moving to the Highlands of Scotland.
Birmingham was where Susanna sharpened her talent for providing Vocal Training and Backing Vocals for live work as well as recording.
Moving to Scotland gave Susanna the opportunity to concentrate on her own material and develop her Solo career.
As well as being a Singer/Songwriter and performer in her own right, Susanna has also worked as a session Vocalist, for Martin Stephenson on many of the Albums he has produced, both for himself and other Artists.
Her latest Album, “Mantras for Modern Times” was released 2022 via Bandcamp.
The Album epitomises the diversity of musical genres that Susanna has embraced over the years.
Produced by Martin Stephenson and featuring a wealth of relatable songs, “Mantras for Modern Times” takes you on a journey of emotional experiences
