Bio

Susan Bluechild is from Dun Laoghaire, Co Dublin. She comes from a strong musical background, her mother and older sister are classical pianists, and her second cousin is Sultans of Ping lead singer Niall O’Flaherty. Susan herself trained as an opera singer and pianist but found she was drawn towards contemporary pop and rock; among her influences Susan sites Sheryl Crow, The Cardigans, Kate Bush, Madonna, Debbie Harry, Stevie Nicks and Belinda Carlisle.

Susan sent her material to the organisers of the Durango Song Writers Expo in Colorado taking place in October, a prestigious invitation only music industry event. Out of hundreds of submissions, mostly from the US and Canada Susan was one of the twenty-five musicians invited to perform a showcase – the only European performer there.

The next step was to find a producer and get an album recorded. It was at the Music Managers’ Forum that Susan met James Hockley, a recording engineer of seven years experience working with major labels developing new acts. James had ambitions to become a record producer but had yet to find the right act, Susan and James exchanged demo tapes and decided to work together. James Hockley has recently signed a deal with Ministry of Sound as an artist for his dance production work.

Susan wrote or co-wrote every song on her debut album “Non Stop To Venus”.

Through My Space word of Susan’s music spread rapidly with a large fan base developing in America, Australia, New Zealand, Canada the UK and Ireland with a lot of radio DJ’s picking up on her music.

“After listening to Susan’s music, both her vocals, songwriting and overall sound, I felt immediately compelled to expose her songs to my radio audience. “Rock Star” was a perfect fit. I look forward towards hearing more from Susan as she progresses with her captivating sound.”
