Suzie Vinnick, 10X Maple Blues Award winner, 3X Juno Nominee was a Finalist in the 2013 International Blues Challenge Solo/Duo Category in Memphis, TN. She was the winner of the 2012 CBC Saturday Night Blues Great Canadian Blues Award and the 2012 SIRIUS/XM Blues Artist of the Year has released a new album entitled Live At Bluesville, a collection of roots, blues and gospel tunes featuring Suzie and her parlour guitar, Mabel.
A little history...in 2011 Suzie sent a copy of her first solo acoustic blues album Me ‘n’ Mabel to Bill Wax and the album ended up charting for seven weeks on B. B. King’s Bluesville “Picks to Click” reaching number three. This gave Suzie exposure to wider markets and very positive feedback on Me ‘n’ Mabel from fans. In November 2011, as part of a two week tour in the US, Suzie and Mabel spent a few hours recording at the Sirius/XM Radio studio with Bill and his team. Suzie felt so good about the recording session that she wanted to share it with her fans.
Suzie’s album Me ‘n’ Mabel received a 2012 Juno Nomination and opened many doors for her including numerous US and international performances — opening for John Hammond at the Madison Square Park Conservancy in New York City and performing in Germany at the Women in (e) Motion Festival in Bremen.
Live At Bluesville features Suzie and her parlour guitar, Mabel, and will appeal to fans of her album Me ‘n’ Mabel and her earlier, roots-music based album, Happy Here. Suzie’s music is available on her website and on iTunes.
