TLR Live Online: Oh Susanna album launch Sleepy Little Sailor deluxe reissue

Friday 4th September 2020

What a show we got from Vancouver’s Suzie Ungerleider aka Oh Susanna on Friday night, it was nothing short of astonishing in its intensity and delivery. Playing the whole album in track order as her first set, she was just mesmerising and the stories behind some of the songs gave us great insight into the creative process behind her songwriting. If you’re not familiar with Oh Susanna, you should be. Although we’ve had the original CD since its release almost 20 years ago, we’ll be rushing out for the double white vinyl!

Set list by Keith Belcher, comments by Keith Belcher and Andrew Hawkey

‘Not familiar with her material but Wow, I am suitably impressed, that was really excellent in terms of voice, sparse guitar, sound, video and most importantly the delivery. With due deference to other artists she really delivered the closest I have felt to a live show of any of the numerous streams I have watched so far. She used the camera and microphone as an audience, talked to both, gestured and  laughed at both, teased  and used them  so well  it felt like you were in the room with her and vice versa. Excellent, really excellent…. and what a beautiful , open smile and nature. I will be buying the album soon and checking the rest of her catalogue.’ – Keith Belcher

‘………..I watched the whole of Suzie’s gig, and it was just marvellous. TLR excelled itself! She’s really grown into a fully evolved artist – she has properly arrived. I’d forgotten how good the songs are … just pulled out the CD, it’s at the top of the weekend listening pile! I hope the reissue campaign is prominent enough to boost her standing. Her guitar playing is remarkable too, I think – it’s an essay in stripped-down unfussiness, and it’s always secondary to the amazing voice … sometimes it’s barely audible, which somehow makes the performance all the more arresting. Anyway, I thought she was just brilliant, and I can’t imagine anyone not being gripped by the whole evening. Brought back warm memories of the Talbot, and driving Suzie to Carmarthen to catch the London train!’ – Andrew Hawkey
