Sue began singing at the age of 7 when her father brought home a record of Lulu’s “Shout” and Sue realized that with the help of a mic (a toilet roll with a ping pong ball stuck in the top and a piece of string attached to the bottom) she could give a pretty good impersonation of that 60’s battle cry…. “Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeelll”
The first time she sang in front of anyone apart from her own reflection in the living room mirror was during her teens in the ’70s when she gave an infamous version of “Humpty Dumpty Sat on a Wall” with a local punk band.
In the ’80s punk gave way to funk and Sue sang both lead and backing with various local bands. Her touring and session experience includes work with artists such as Shakatak and Marsha Raven and the Ravettes and involves amongst others doing an extensive number one tour as a Ravette to promote Marsha’s European No.1 disco hit “Catch Me”
Sue’s writing collaborations during this time led to her song “You Cant Touch Me Anymore” being covered by Sabiha Kara and the band Strike One and consequently reaching number 4 in the UK Soul/Disco charts in 1983.
Come and see her live on a nice Sunday afternoon.
