About Susan by her fellow musicians
 

“Her finely-honed vocal talents - and connoisseur’s choice of repertoire - mark her out as a truly important new jazz singer, as capable of touching your heart with a poignant ballad as making her carefree way through some show-tune, novelty-song or Swing delice. If you like really good songs the way they should be sung then look - and listen - no further. You've found Susan Valliant Speer! ”

Jazz singer Susan Valliant Speer has a warm sunny sound and sings with great intonation and phrasing. She delivers a song with musical integrity and is equally at home singing a moving ballad or up-tempo swing. Susan is natural and spontaneous and brings to each melody she sings, a freshness and style that's a joy to listen to.

“Susan sings with a musical intonation that is second to none delivering the highs and lows of a melody line with great passion, warmth and confidence coupled with her bubbly on stage professional personality. 

 

This is a lady who's singing voice is easily at home either belting out a hot jazz favourite in true vaudeville style or delivering an easy listening  ballad in that intimate cabaret setting.  For the shows that Susan  worked with  my own band  it was always an exciting rewarding and thoroughly professional experience to have her as our guest. 

 

Fans still talk about  "Running Wild"  the CD we made together. I would like to wish her every success for the future and I am sure we shall work together again.  I have no hesitation to recomend this talented lady. .....

About the new CD, 'I Love Being Here With You'

 

Susan Valliant Speer sticks mainly to mainstram jazz choices in an intelligently varied selection of songs.  Her versions of God Bless the Child and I'm a Woman avoid the giant shadows of Billie and Peggy, the former in particular perfectly tailored to Ms. Speer, while Ian Riley and Frank Griffith on tenor make hay with the bluesy treatment of I'm a Woman.  Always a poised and precises singer, Susan Valliant Speer moves from a swinging romp through Just One of Those Things to a witty, kind-of-Hamlisch All That Jazz and a delicate and affecting When You Wish Upon a Star (very sympathetic piano accompaniment) as a well chosen closer.

I Love Being Here With You has...tasteful arrangements of ...great songs sung by Susan, who is obviously having a ball.  She is accompanied by a select group of professional musicians.  So, whether you are a fan of Susan's from her 'Tradtional/vaudeville-style, just love her voice, or like classy music beautifully sung, this is a recommended album.  From a personal viewpoint, Susan is a new voice, and the more I listened, the more I enjoyed her music.

What satisfied clients say about Susan -
 
 
Appearing for the first time at The Lansdowne Club in Luton, Jazz vocalist Susan Valliant Speer enthralled a capacity audience with her scintillating performance.   Her dynamic presentation of a broad programme of jazz standards held the audience spellbound, clamouring for more and appealing for a repeat performance.   I've received nothing but compliments about the whole session.   We'd love you all to visit us again, and I'll contact you later when we have the Autumn schedule sorted.

Those fortunate enough to have attended the first visit to the Club of Susan Valliant Speer will not need reminding what a great entertainer she is.  Accompanied by her own trio of top-flight musicians, Susan is able to carry off with panache any tune she chooses to sing.  As capable of touching your heart with a poignant ballad as belting out a show stopper, Susan's performance is a delight to the ear.  Opportunities to hear visiting performers of this stature happen but rarely - the American Jazz vocalist shouldn't be missed.
