Singer/Songwriter Suzie Brown Coming to Steel City on Friday, October 15th

On Friday, October 15th, Philadelphia area native Suzie Brown will be performing at Steel City Coffee House.
Recently named Best of Philly 2010 for music talent by Philadelphia Magazine, Brown is a practicing cardiologist who set aside a promising research career to pursue her love of music. She has enjoyed an exceedingly quick rise to popularity, given that she started writing songs just two years ago. Within a few months of playing her first show in the fall of 2008, Brown sold out Philadelphia’s storied Tin Angel and opened for Livingston Taylor. By February, she was warming up crowds for Lyle Lovett, and by summer, she was playing for packed houses at New York City’s Rockwood Music Hall and Boston’s Johnny D’s and Club Passim.

While media outlets have seized on her unusual bio, audiences and promoters have focused squarely on Brown’s music. The easy familiarity of her songs harkens back to Carole King’s folk-pop creations, while the yearning sweetness in her voice recalls the down-home intimacy of Patty Griffin. Brown’s songwriting is remarkably mature, embodying the best traditions of Nashville-style songwriting with subtle progressions and memorable turns of phrase.

Brown recently released her debut recording, entitled Side Streets, to a sell-out crowd at the Tin Angel. The record has enjoyed regular airplay on numerous local and regional radio stations, and was featured as the local ‘pick of the day’ and as one of the year’s best local releases by Philadelphia’s WXPN.
