One part Rat Pack, one part Rosie Clooney, Suede is the "Diva la Difference" - sassy, smooth and simply intoxicating. Think sophisticated pop/jazz, naughty blues with a sizzling trumpet, love songs that will make you swoon. Think funny…think wow, what a set o' pipes!

She appears on such legendary stages as NYC’s Birdland, San Francisco’s Feinstein’s, Washington, DC’s Blues Alley, The Kennedy Center, Boston’s Scullers Jazz Club and more, and comes to us fresh from headlining with Melissa Etheridge and Sarah McLachlan. 

The diva plays piano, guitar and trumpet, but voice is her first instrument and entertaining is clearly her first love. Imagine a cross between Natalie Cole, Diana Krall and Bette Midler and you'll be approaching some idea of Suede's powerful presence, musical talents, and well-honed skills, let alone her immense joy in entertaining. She’s the consummate entertainer and song stylist -- among the likes of Tony Bennett and company – certainly the classic singer's singer. She sings original material and pop, blues and jazz standards like nobody you've ever heard while jammin’, especially with her fabulous combo on piano and upright bass. 

From astounding a cappella, incredibly intimate ballads and smoking’ trumpet solos to “bring down the house” belting blues, Suede delivers it all with her own unique blend of warmth, wit and pure musical artistry.

“Voices like hers come along maybe once in a generation”


“A great voice, even better enthusiasm, almost giddy delight at entertaining audiences, that if bottled would make every anti-depressant on the market obsolete”
