Oh Susanna is the stage name of singer/songwriter Suzie Ungerleider, a Canadian alt-country performer with a taste for stark, haunting balladry that's earned her comparisons to the likes of Gillian Welch. Born in the US, Ungerleider moved with her family to Vancouver as a child, and grew up listening to all kinds of music (she was especially fond of the Rolling Stones).
In a career spanning almost two decades, Oh Susanna has released eight critically acclaimed records noted for their contemplative, thoughtful, folk-inspired songs that transport listeners into an imaginary emotional landscape. Whether applauding a young woman's need to stand tall in the face of dire circumstances, expressing love and tenderness to a dying loved one or embodying the anger of a soldier's widow, Oh Susanna's songs aim straight for the gut. The timeless themes of love, loss and longing are expressed in soaring melodies and vivid lyrics.
