About Sue

sue2Sue has been singing since before she could talk! She is gifted with a unique voice, suited so well to the field of jazz, in the tradition of the great American singers.

Sue is known for her musicality, her natural, mellow tone and the sheer emotion she pours into her performance, delighting audiences wherever she sings. She can be heard in jazz clubs, theatres, on cruise ships, at weddings, pubs and parties, inaccompanied by a variety of gifted musicians. Sue sings with piano or guitar, through jazz trios, to quintets, all the way through to big bands.

Although jazz is Sue’s area of speciality, she is a thoroughly versatile singer with a broad repertoire, who has experience of most styles of singing. This versatility adds variety to the music that can be performed at your party, wedding or corporate event. Sue sings regularly with the hugely popular function band, The Good Times.
