Suzie Brown

While contemplating your goal of being a music star, it's smart to have something to fall back on. For singer-songwriter Suzie Brown, that meant getting her MD at Harvard, a Master of Science in Translational Research from the University of Pennsylvania, then practicing cardiology. That's right, Brown—whose first full-length, Heartstrings, drops May 24—is no slacker. And it's with that same resolve that she decided one day to defer her dream no longer. There’s no disputing that Brown works hard, but her material isn’t exactly a tough sell. The string-soaked "Heartstrings" is an ode to unrequited love that's a throwback to the work of Patsy Cline. The bluesy "What You Do to Me" is an end-of-the-night jukebox crooner. The jaunty "I'll Be Gone" sounds like a hand-clapping anthem out of KT Tunstall's catalog.
A chance encounter with Philly folk-jazz singer Amos Lee at the Newport Folk Festival would prove most fortuitous. In addition to being a source of moral support, Lee would introduce her to his producer, Barrie Maguire, who went on to helm Heartstrings. Her burgeoning career moved at a rapid pace. By early 2009, she sold out her first solo show at the Tin Angel. Before long, she was opening for Lyle Lovett at the local concert hall. In two years, she’s gone from composing her first song to releasing her first full-length album. Says Brown, "I can't believe this is my life."
