Suzanne Savage has been hailed as “the best voice out of Northern Ireland in the past thirty years” (Jackie Flavelle, Downtown Radio). The former lead singer of Giant Steps and Spree is probably the definition of diversity in a musician, having worked with musical royalty across a myriad of genres.
Suzanne’s career highlights include appearing at SXSW, supporting Van Morrison (at his personal invitation), singing backing vocals with Paul Brady, Eleanor McEvoy and Jimmy Cobb, performing as a soloist with The Florence Symphony Orchestra, RTE Orchestra, Riverdance and touring with the critically acclaimed choir New Dublin Voices, to name but a select few.
In her solo music, Suzanne is slicker than your average singer songwriter, heavily influenced by jazz and Irish songwriters and informed by her experience as a performer of funk, heavy rock, drum and bass, contemporary classical music and everything in between. The launch of her first solo album at this event in the Black Box will be a culmination of many of these influences and the début of one of the most unique voices in Irish music today.
