A Saskatoon native transplanted to the Niagara Region of Ontario, Suzie Vinnick is the proud owner of a gorgeous voice, prodigious guitar and bass chops, and an engagingly candid performance style. Her career has seen triumph after triumph. Among her most recent successes: achieving finalist status in the Solo/Duo Category at the 2013 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN; winning 2 X 2012 Maple Blues Awards for Best Acoustic Act and Female Vocalist, being named 2012 Sirius XM Canada Blues Artist of the Year.
Suzie has toured nationally with Stuart McLean’s The Vinyl Café and the John McDermott Band, and performed for Canadian Peacekeepers in Bosnia and the Persian Gulf. She was also the voice of Tim Horton’s for 5 years. How cool is that?
Suzie’s latest full-length release is a solo acoustic blues album entitled Me ‘n’ Mabel, and in May of 2012, she released Live At Bluesville, which includes 8 blues, roots and gospel songs.
