In “Don’t Miss Too Much,” Brown writes to her children about the fear she feels as a mother. The meticulous skills necessary for surgery are present in her music, too. Brown’s attention to detail in her lyrics and arrangements make for an immersive, emotive listen.
Bifurcation in and of itself isn’t a rarity, but Suzie Brown’s story is a head-turner. Working as a part-time cardiologist at Nashville’s Vanderbilt, the singer-songwriter pursues a career in folk artistry during her off-time.
Brown’s style is a touch of Folk, a touch of Americana mixed with a light country feel and rockabilly...I strongly suggest you seek this one, especially if you are sick of the same old country that is played on the radio today.
Aside from being a first-rate singer/songwriter (no small feat), she is a Harvard-educated cardiologist with a master’s degree in translational research from the University of Pennsylvania who has also studied at the prestigious Berklee College of Music and sang in an a cappella group while an undergrad at Dartmouth. (Feeling kind of like a loser in comparison yet? We are. Like most of Philadelphia, we went to Temple.)
Bluesy, folky, achy, sweet-voiced Suzie Brown. A practicing cardiologist pursuing a career in singing (her own songs) and playing the guitar, she's part Emmylou Harris, part Allison Krauss, and totally worth seeing. (Try Tin Angel). Or even just hearing - her debut album is called 'Side Streets'.
