The New York Times says she’s like Adele meets Diana Krall meets Bette Midler - sassy, smooth and intoxicating.
Opening the third season of the Sandwich Arts Alliance “Village Concert Series”, Cape Cod favorite (and Wellfleet resident) Suede performs with local musicians Fred Boyle on piano and Rich Hill on bass, for ONE NIGHT ONLY on Saturday, September 23rd at Sandwich Town Hall from 7-9 pm. Suede comes direct from sold out shows at world renowned clubs like NYC’s famous Birdland, San Francisco’s Feinstein’s and Boston’s Scullers Jazz Club, as well as multiple other national and international tours, which include helping to raise $45,000 in one night for a free clinic outside Washington, DC. She also had the immense privilege and honor of being the late, great Joan Rivers’ opening act, commanding standing ovations from Joan’s audiences.
"You are GREAT! I hope we work together again soon and often!" - Joan Rivers
Imagine a cross between Adele, Diana Krall and Bette Midler and you'll be approaching some idea of Suede's powerful presence, musical talents, and well-honed skills, let alone her immense joy in entertaining.
Suede plays piano, guitar and trumpet, but voice is her first instrument and entertaining is clearly her first love. She is a consummate entertainer and song stylist among the likes of Tony Bennett and company - the classic singer's singer. She sings original material and pop, blues and jazz standards like nobody you've ever heard while jammin' with some iteration of her fabulous combo - solo to trio and beyond. When she's really cookin' her NYC based nine-piece Dangerous Big Band Horns join in to blow the roof off the joint.
From astounding a cappella, incredibly intimate ballads, and smokin' trumpet solos, to "bring down the house" belting blues, Suede delivers it all with her own unique blend of warmth, wit and musical artistry.
The Boston Globe says she’s “Wicked exciting!”
