Sue Smith is a singer, songwriter, performer, writer and teacher.
Sue’s debut solo album, “I’m So”, is a collection of 11 new, original songs
written and recorded over the period Nov. ‘03 -Oct. ‘05. Taking inspiration from
northern landscape, blue whale acoustics, singing classes with Peg Evans, and
an intensive period of dance studies, Sue created a collection of songs examining
the magnetics of relationships; the desire that evolves a greeting, the experience
that necessitates a goodbye and reflection on the memories of these acts; hellos,
goodbyes and, always, love. “I’m So” will be released in May, 2006.
