Tireless promoters of voting, equality, and love, they thrive on creating intimacy, causing tears and laughter in equal measures. Their new all original album 'Me Daza' was recorded in Ireland. Currently working on a lo-fi folk opera about Pigeons (!) and the causes of Homelessness - you won’t want to miss what they do next! https://www.reidjamieson.com
Sue Decker’s soulful voice, earthy slide guitar playing, and ‘outlaw country’ songwriting sensibility make for a powerful combination. Since she started playing music with a rented guitar at a bluegrass jam, Sue has been expanding her musicality wherever her songwriting leads. She followed the release of her first EP, 2015's Live at the Duncan Showroom, with a digital single “Love Never Follows the Rules”.
In 2019, Sue released her debut full length album Outskirts of Love to international airplay and acclaim: “Sue Decker has one of the most remarkable voices I have heard for many a day. She has a warm voice, deep and strong and there is a haunting quality to it that gave me chills when I first put the album on . . . the whole thing is a terrific listen.” (Andy Snipper, Blues Matters UK). Twelve original songs about love, fear, and faith are delivered on Outskirts with the passion and wit Sue is known for in her live shows. On stage solo or with a full band, she creates a sense of community with her playful connection to the audience.http://suedecker.com/
