Possessing “all the vibe in the world,” (Rolling Stone), Suzanna Choffel feels equally at home singing in a dimly lit, smoky club as she does front and center in front of (literally) millions. Credit the Austin TX native’s musical upbringing: with a name inspired by Leonard Cohen’s “Suzanne,” she was steeped in her parents’ ‘70s LP collection and grew up cultivating an interest in pop, soul, jazz, reggae and more. The budding talent began writing songs at a young age, took up piano and guitar, and gigged in teenage R&B bands at the legendary Continental Club and even Antone’s. She shot to the top of the Austin music scene after her debut album Shudders & Rings won multiple songwriting awards, and her dynamic live show earned her “Best Indie Band” at the 2009 Austin Music Awards. Suddenly she was headlining SXSW, appearing at Austin City Limits festival, CMJ and Voodoo Experience, and sharing stages with the likes of Angelique Kidjo and Solange.
