Biography

Songstress Susy Blue creates her very own whimsical blend of shadowy alt-folk. With vintage vocals and honeyed harmonies, Susy Blue’s signature mercurial sounds are woven with anything from classical styles to calypso, trip-hop, noveau-folk, 60’s pop, soul, old-world jazz, neo-klezmer and surf-rock to fashion songs that are fun, free and on the fringe.

Hailing from a conservatorium studied musical background, Susy Hull captains the mighty six piece of talented instrumentalists. Her quirky tunes feature a cacophony of musical influences ranging from classical, jazz to folk and gypsy stylings and draw noticeable inspirations from Fiona Apple, Joanna Newsom and Bjork.

Critics and music lovers alike have recognized Susy Blue’s unique style and timeless voice. Her 2011 debut album Curly Girl received critical acclaim, such as “an adorable, entertaining and clever album not to be missed”, as well as extensive local and national airplay, including Triple J and ABC Radio National. Performing at festivals such as Woodford, Apollo Bay, Darebin Music Feast and the APRA Song Summit, Susy Blue’s live show features a talented array of band members and is renown for being cheeky, unexpected and entertaining.

Susy Blue’s sophomore album ‘Nobody’s Somebody,’ funded by the Australia Council for the Arts and Arts Victoria, produced by Shane O’Mara (Tim Rogers, Paul Kelly, Lisa Miller) is due for release early 2014. The first single off the album, kooky calypso pop number ‘Wish In My Dish,’ has seen national airplay and acclaim such as being “new, bold and different, and definitely worth a listen.”
