Susan's story so far......
 
Born in San Francisco, California, USA, Susan has been singing jazz since her graduation from the University of Oregon.  She began her career with the Uptown Lowdown Jazz  Band in Seattle, Washington where she and the band appeared frequently throughout the Pacific Northwest as well as at jazz festivals throughout the USA and Canada including the Sacramento Jazz Jubilee, The Pismo Beach Jazz Festival, Central City Colorado Jazz Festival, Butte Montana Jazz Festival, Scottsdale Arizona Jazz Festival, and Vancouver BC jazz festivals.  She has also appeared as guest artiste at the Bessie Smith Memorial Jazz Fesitval in Chattanooga, Tennessee and aboard The Royal Viking Star Cruise ship through the Panama Canal. 
   
 
She moved to Atlanta, Georgia and raised her family and began singing contemporary Christian music.  She recorded a very well received CD, 'Looking For The Light' and one of the singles 'Where There's Hope' was on the Christian charts nationally.  While living in Atlanta however, she never lost touch with jazz and worked with jazz legend coronetist Ernie Carson as well as frequent appearances with F Moon Big Butt Jazz Band.  One of her greatest honours came when she was invited to sing in the White House for President Bill Clinton for the annual Christmas celebration, The Pageant of Peace which is the official lighting of the White House Christmas tree.  She has also performed for President Jimmy Carter, Congressman Newt Gingridge and Governor Zell Miller of Georgia.  She has been featured with the USA Army Ground Forces Band as part of the Peach Radio Christmas series.
 
   

Since moving to the UK, she has worked with many top UK bands including The Pete Allen Jazz Band where she appeared on his theatre tour.  With Pete she recorded the CD “Running Wild”.  Susan has also performed regularly with The Mike Kemp Trio, ‘Sir’ Alan’s Jazz Band and The Rascals of Rhythm.  She has done guest appearances with The Ken Colyer Trust Band, John Burnett Jazz Bandits, West Jesmond Ryhthm Kings, Bob Dywer Jazz Band, and many others.  She has appeared at numerous jazz festivals including Breda Jazz Festival in Holland, Swanage Jazz Festival, Birmingham Jazz Festival, Keswick Jazz Festival, and Upton Upon Severn Jazz Festival.  She has performed in popular venues such as the 100 Club, The Queen Elizabeth Hall, and The Banqueting House of St. James Palace.
