Discovery: Suzie Ungerleider

Canadian singer songwriter Suzie Ungerleider has stormed onto my radar through her beautifully written new track Baby Blues.

By Graeme Smith

I’m a sucker for a song with a narrative and imagery that really gets lodged in your mind. That’s exactly what I got from Baby Blues. Suzie paints a convincing biographical picture of the song’s protagonist – the one with the “…baby blues, no-one knew that you had.” Suzie’s charming vocals are accompanied by guitar and strings sweeping in a sense of uneasy hope.

Formerly known as Oh Susanna and twice nominated in the Juno awards, Suzie is now recording under her birth name. Check out Baby Blues below. If you like what you hear, you’ll be pleased to know that Suzie’s new album My Name is Suzie Ungerleider is set to be released on 13 August.
