"Best New Female Artist"

'Sue-Anne is one of the best new female artist to grace the acoustic
folk/blues/roots scene, and her debut album 'Vivid' sure proves that.'
Alleyway Music.

'She sings about life, and her music has an instant appeal and can be appreciated by a broad audience.'
4/5 TSUNAMI MAGAZINE. - Alleyway Music



The first thing that struck me about Sue-Anne’s new EP was the soothing beauty of her voice. The upbeat title track ’Embrace’ brings an immediate smile and reminds me a little of a female John Butler. ’Won’t Leave’ shows a soul-like melding with her guitar - Sue-Anne knows her way around the fret board and the piece is both beautiful and touching.’Saying Goodbye’ is equally attractive to the soul but with an included light back ground rhythm that rounds out the bluesy EP nicely. 7.5/10 TSUNAMI MAGAZINE - TSUNAMI MAG

With her trademark fingerpicking and strumming guitar style, warm husky tones, and honest, heartfelt lyrics, surfing singer songwriter Sue-Anne is one of the brightest stars in to shine on the contemporary folk/roots scene.

Some of her earliest childhood memories are of her Nan playing the piano and Pop on the piano accordion or guitar. They become her earliest influences, introducing her to the likes of Elvis, Patsy Cline, and Johnny Cash.

Sue-Anne received her first guitar at the age of 11 – a gift from her father the first time they met. It was from this time that her interest in music began to blossom. Despite losing his hearing in a freak accident two years later, Sue-Anne’s father continued sharing his musical knowledge with his daughter, nurturing her passion for songwriting and singing.

With no electricity on their farm near Agnes Waters, father and daughter spent much of their time playing music together, honing classics from the ‘60s and ‘70s like Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Cat Stevens and Pink Floyd.

By her late teens, Sue-Anne had started writing her own songs, and had begun to develop her own style of acoustic/folk/roots.

Moving to the Sunshine Coast at 19 with her guitar and a dream, Sue-Anne surrounded herself with many talented musicians and immersed herself in the vibrant music scene. This move also enabled her to devote more time to another of her great loves, surfing.

A chapter in Melbourne proved the springboard for her music career, and she has since performed shows all around the world, produced three independent album releases, and performed at some of the world’s finest music festivals (including Woodford Folk Festival, Calgary Stampede, Vegoose in Las Vegas, and the Jack McCoy Surf Film Festival in Portugal) alongside artists such as John Butler, Ash Grunwald, Pete Molinari and Martin Harley.

Having made a career “playing music, travelling the world and doing what I love”, Sue-Anne moves from strength-to-strength with the release of her third album, a four-track EP titled Embrace.

The songs on Embrace are a blend of acoustic intimate songs and more upbeat, bigger-sounding tracks. They all share Sue-Anne’s down-to-earth sincerity and openness about life's trials and tribulations, and give a little taste of what's to come on her next album.

The EP was recorded and mixed in Brisbane by Jeff Lovejoy at Blackbox Studios, and is backed by a stellar line- up of musicians, including members of Brisbane's hot local act Afro Dizzi Act.

With her trademark smile and genuine enthusiasm for her craft, it’s pretty clear to see that Sue-Anne is doing what she loves, and doing a fine job of it too.

“As I embrace this moment, I embrace all the beauty in my life and I release, all the things that keep me from flying, flying…fly, fly, flyin’.”

from the title track to her new EP, Embrace.
