Oh Susanna is a Canadian songstress who possesses a voice that opens your ribcage and wraps around your heart.
Her superbly crafted songs tell stories of troubled souls who rebel against their circumstances to attain a quiet dignity. These are tales of longing and love, of our simple feelings and strong passions and of our search for who we are. These are tales that peer into our beautifully-flawed human hearts. Performing since 1996, Vancouver-based Oh Susanna has released eight critically acclaimed albums. She is the recipient of a Genie Award for Best Original Song and a Canadian Folk Music Award for English Songwriter of the Year. She has also been nominated for two Juno Awards each for Best Roots and Traditional Album of the Year, as well as two Canadian Folk Music Awards for Best Solo Performer and for Best Contemporary Singer of the Year. In 2017, she released A Girl in Teen City, an album of songs set in 1980s Vancouver starring a teenage punk girl named Suzie. The album has been met with high critical acclaim and has earned three Canadian Folk Music Award nominations: English Songwriter of the Year, Contemporary Singer of the Year, and Producer of the Year. In 2019 Oh Susanna re-issued a 20th Anniversary Edition of her folk-noir full-length debut Johnstown. This year she is re-issuing her sophomore album Sleepy Little Sailor on double vinyl. The package includes 5 acoustic versions of the album's evocative songs. Pre-sale begins May 20th. First single is out now.
