* Willing to travel anywhere - with my band preferably *
SUCH is a Boston born, New York raised, California educated, Chicago groomed, ex-registered nurse, now Soul singer living in Colorado. Just like her upbringing, her road to music has been a scenic journey. It started at the age of 15 when she was invited to perform in the Grammy High School Jazz Ensemble for three consecutive years (2000-2002) and recorded a full length album with them each year. She had the privilege to tour LA's best jazz clubs and venues – The Brown Derby, Spaghettini's, The Knitting Factory, etc. She attended the Grammy Nominee Dinner and the Grammy Awards where she met and performed with Patrice Rushen, Peter Cincotti, Kurt Elling, Dave Koz, Erykah Badu, Yolanda Adams, Vanessa Carlton and Letoya and Latavia (of the former "Destiny's Child"). She recently finished top 63rd on this season of American Idol.
As a performer, SuCh has enough energy to power a small city; her passion for music emanating tangibly in venues largeand small. As a songwriter, she writes simple songs about complex things – loss, family, love, life, friendship and hardship. She connects emotionally as both with her audiences through melodies that soar, woven in her clear, soulful voice, spiriting them away to distant lands, forgotten memories, and dreams of a better world. She performs live with a cast of world-class musicians and background singers but also loves a stripped down, acoustic show.
