Saturday 2nd June⋄ TBC ⋄ BBC Introducing Stage
Suzie Mac has always been obsessed with soul music and from a very young age showed an interest with gospel and the roots of country music. Her father being a vicar encouraged her to sing before she could talk. She went on to perform in Gloucester Cathedral. It took a few years later until she started doing gigs and began her spellbinding mission to turn heads while she sang. She has sung at festivals such as Glastonbury, Beautiful Days, Port Eliot and Looe Music Festival to name a few.
She is currently commuting between Cornwall and London working on her first album with writers such as Ian Dench, former EMF guitarist, who has written for Beyonce, Shakira and Florence and the Machine. Since her arrival on the music scene she has been nicknamed ‘Aretha’ Suzie due to her powerful but sweet vocals. It’s no surprise due to influences such as Aretha Franklin, Dusty Springfield, Paolo Nutini, Chaka Khan, Chris Stapleton, Donny Hatherway, Etta James, Fleetwood Mac, John Mayer, Joni Mitchell, Marvin Gaye, Paul Simon, Nina Simone that her powerhouse vocals have developed into something quite unique.
