I just got off the phone with SuCh, and if her singing voice is anything like her speaking voice, this show is going to be a knock out performance. You can practically hear her singing when she speaks.
SuCh is a Boston born, New York raised, California educated, Chicago groomed Soul singer. Just like her upbringing, her road to music has been a scenic journey. It started at the age of 15 when she was invited to perform in the Grammy High School Jazz Ensemble for three consecutive years (2000-2002) and recorded a full length album with them each year. She had the privilege to tour LA’s best jazz clubs and venues – The Brown Derby, Spaghettini’s, The Knitting Factory, etc. She attended the Grammy Nominee Dinner and the Grammy Awards where she met and performed with Patrice Rushen, Peter Cincotti, Kurt Elling, Dave Koz, Erykah Badu, Yolanda Adams, Vanessa Carlton and Letoya and Latavia (of the former “Destiny’s Child”).
She spent the next few years leading choirs, praise teams and congregations in worship in Boston, Chicago, and Denver. That led her to work with international recording artist K’naan on the choral orchestration and arrangement of his hit single Wavin’ Flag. She most recently finished in the top 98 out of 112,000 contestants on American Idol’s Season 11.
As a performer, SuCh has enough energy to power a small city; her passion for music emanating tangibly in venues largeand small. As a songwriter, she writes simple songs about complex things – loss, family, love, life, friendship and hardship. She connects emotionally as both with her audiences through melodies that soar, woven in her clear, soulful voice, spiriting them away to distant lands, forgotten memories, and dreams of a better world. She performs live with a cast of world-class musicians and background singers but also loves a stripped down, acoustic show.
SuCh released her first full-length album, Stretch Marks, on May 5, 2012. She sets out to give new meaning to the term by encouraging her listeners to view life’s heartaches, tests and trials as growth, to harness the strength gained from these battles and to wear the resulting scars with pride. “Life is beautiful, not pretty. What makes it worth living are those things that push, stretch us beyond our limits.”
From the easy, laid back neo-soul vibes of “Mezmerized” to the Haitian-inspired rhythms of “Innocence Lost” to the hip-hop/spoken word title track, SuCh is able to tug at the heart strings and easily make the case that there is in fact beauty in imperfection.
