A Saskatoon native transplanted to the Niagara Region of Ontario, Roots and Blues singer Suzie Vinnick is a 3X Juno Nominee, CFMA Award winner, and a 10-time winner of the Maple Blues Award for songwriting, female vocalist, acoustic act and more. Suzie has a voice you’ve heard a thousand times and one you’ll never forget. It soars, it growls, it whispers and it shouts from a deep, deep well of emotion. The pure joy she exudes when she picks up that guitar is so worth the show.
Suzie has toured nationally with Stuart McLean’s The Vinyl Café, the John McDermott Band, and she has performed for Canadian Peacekeepers in Bosnia and the Persian Gulf. She was also the voice of Tim Horton’s for 5 years.
Suzie just released her latest album, a full band roots and blues extravaganza entitled Shake The Love Around.
“Warm, rich and emotional, Vinnick’s gorgeous vocals ring with confidence…”– Ottawa Citizen
“Serving up a set where it shows she’s a long way from getting jaded and losing her mojo, this girl most likely to…has more chops than the meat department at the Costco warehouse. Blues, folk, rock? She’s got a toe in all those waters and handles them all with the ease of wrapping them around her little finger. A real blast of fresh air, this set hit’s the target every timeout. Killer stuff throughout.” – Midwest Record
