Susanna Westwood – Live Like This
aaamusic | On 30, May 2011
The EP features songs that reflect the highs and lows of real life and includes a breathlessly honest interpretation of the Al Green classic, Im So Tired of Being Alone.
With a vocal hewn from the bedrock of gospel from an early age, flavoured by travels in Africa, Israel, Canada and North America, and fired with a shot of pure New York magic, Susanna is bringing her fresh brand of jazz-infused soul to a wider audience.
Inspirational, optimistic and real, her songs reflect her spirit an innate self-belief that has led Susanna throughout her career to date. From work with Loteck Hifi, producer for Roots Manoeuvre and Funk Agenda, highly acclaimed jazz bassist Dave Markee and countless established musicians throughout the UK, Susanna has served an impressive apprenticeship, leading her to establish her own record label, Imprint Records, in 2010. Live Like This is the first release from the label.
A trained dancer working in the UK and New York, Susanna has also established Imprint Dance Company, bringing together the two great loves of her life.
