Gigging from York to New York, singer and songwriter Suzy Bradley has paid her dues and honed her unique style over the last few years. Based in Yorkshire, she is a regular on the acoustic music scene and folk festival circuit, as well as formerly lending her powerful vocals to acclaimed rock band The Murderhouse, who released an album in 2006 and toured in the UK and USA.
Suzy’s unflinchingly honest, sometimes dark, acoustic songs and her remarkable folk and jazz-influenced vocal style gained a new depth from her collaboration with her band, The Morning After, featuring classical cellist Lucy Blakeson, ex-The Murderhouse guitarist David Martin and former Bloody Marys Ryan and Kate Shirlow on bass and percussion.
Her Song 'Striving for perfection' received regular airplay on local rqdio station BBC Radio York & reached the semi finals in 2008 of the UK Songwriting Contest.
Suzy supported American pop folk songstress Dar Williams in 2010 and Jacqui McShee's Pentangle in 2012. She has also supported artists as diverse as US art-rock band My Brightest Diamond, Glasgow folk-rockers Sons And Daughters and jazz chanteuse Gwyneth Herbert. Describing her style as “intimate, sometimes confessional and always from the heart” . In 2015 Suzy supported the stompingly good folks Ringlefinch alongside Lazy Heart Parade and up and coming UK folk singer and songwriter Emily Mae Winters (debut album released 2017).
Now performing as a solo artist Suzy was recently playing a monthly residency at the Old Ebor in York. Previous festival bookings have included Filey folk festival, Staxtonbury, Festival on the Moor, New Ebor Street Feast, Cottingham Folk Festival & Thornborough Festival to name but a few.
