ABOUT

   After an absence of 25 years from the music scene, Suzanne made her reappearance with her group The Vines from the 80s, as they reunited for a few shows. Inspired and rejuvenated, she began writing tunes for what became Crystal Clear, a six-song EP which will be released on Saturday May 4th, 2019. Following the formula she used back in the day, she created the same catchy, heartfelt jangle pop influenced by the Beatles, R.E.M. and The Byrds that she was always known for. After producing demos with singer/producer Hayley Cass, she began gathering musicians for the record. Starting with longtime friend, former bandmate and bassist Marc Seligman, she then added drummer Seth Baer of the Ben Vaughn Quintet. The three went to London Sound Studios in Cherry Hill, NJ where Harris London recorded the basic tracks. Using her Hoboken days connections, Suzanne then reached out to vocalists Deena Shoshkes and Jon Fried, who she knew from the power pop band The Cucumbers, and now with The Campfire Flies. From Suzanne’s Philly connections, she was able to wrangle local legend Cliff Hillis, who added guitar, keyboards and backup vocals, as well as mixing/mastering services from his studio The Hacienda, in Phoenixville, PA.
