As a composer
Suz has a diverse repository of styles, from traditional to contemporary, and from the ridiculous to the sublime. She flows easily between all eras and styles of music, from Broadway to Gaslight era old time piano tunes to smooth jazz, quirky TV theme songs and cinematic underscoring. Her 2,000-song repertoire and years of performing as a multi-instrumentalist with diverse bands has given her the tools to be a multi-genre “outside the box” kind of composer.
In essence, Suz is the “go-to” composer for creative, memorable tunes in just about every style. She goes from quirky to poignant in 10 seconds flat! Visit her Production Music Page to see a sampling of her catalog of music.
