I love to entertain!!! When I see my audience having a great time, I'm happy. I did a lot of plays, usually in a lead dramatic role, having to cry every night on stage. One day I thought, why? And realized that singing would be more fun. And it is!!! And when people relate to my songs, I feel so filled in my soul. For a couple of blessed years now, I have been on tour for our highway troopers, the truck drivers of this country, playing with love musical notes on my guitar or piano, singing with my hopefully angelic voice, weaving a musical mist of Country, Cajun, Americana, Zydeco, Honky-Tonk and Blues in a combination of solid country traditionalism with neoteric sound just like a fine blend of Whiskey. I call it "Sweet Southern" music that fills the heart with romance and peace. I love all styles, but this American rooted mix,gives me my "comfort food." This year I plan to take my songs to a new level and perform with a pop chamber orchestra, record my next CD and do my TV show!
Hello! This year is wild. I'm in the middle of last minute details on my forthcoming TV One Hour Reality show - The Susanne Spirit USA Road Show - where I will bring the world the life of our trucking industry, have different guests artists each week and meet a lot of new folks. This is also my third year of winning an ASCAP award. My CD Vows Of Love, is ready. I am going in the studio to record "Back Porch Tales" with my new Zydeco/Bluegrass song "I'm Getting Married in My Home Town!"
SUSANNE SPIRIT BIOGRAPHY
Life is precious! And dreams will happen if you work at what you want every day and take risks. Better to try something than do nothing! “Go for it” because life will go by anyway. And if you don’t do “it” you will stay where you are. I learned gymnastics just a few years ago. This little girl looked at me as I tried to do a back flip, and she said, You can make it!!! I know you can, I walk thru my fears for that young lady.
