Suzie Vinnick
Suzie VinnickAfter winning numerous awards for playing, singing and writing the blues, Suzie Vinnick has finally put out a blues album under her own name. Suzie has been a perennial nominee and six-time winner of the Canadian Maple Blues awards for her work with such blues players such as Rick Fines. And while she has three critically-acclaimed folk-roots albums under her belt, including one that earned her a 2009 Juno nomination, this is her first solo outing as a blues artist. Me ’n’ Mabel is an intimate, bare bones collection of 14 acoustic blues songs featuring Suzie and her guitar, with guests such as Rick Fines and Chris Whiteley on a few tracks. She travels many of the musical roads that the blues takes her — from familiar bar room shuffles like “Walkin’ by Myself” to her own delicious “Save Me for Later,” likely the only song ever written including the phrase, “risotto con grana Padano.”

The spotlight is on Suzie’s voice. Blessed with a huge range, she goes from a sweet whisper to a growl in a heartbeat. She can be sexy, humorous, sassy or heartbroken. With her impeccable sense of dynamics, Suzie’s voice commands attention.
Her guitar playing on this disc will surprise even longtime fans. Suzie’s percussive style has the feel that elevates the blues from the mundane to the sublime, a sense of melody and rhythm you can’t learn at school.

This long-awaited project was produced by Danny Greenspoon, who also worked on her 2002 release, 33 Stars.

Suzie’s biography was written by Mike Sadava, a journalist and musician from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
