ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Dance Attic was formed in 2014 (Duluth MN) by Suzi Ludwig (accordion, vocals) and Jimi Cooper (resonator guitar, ukulele, wazoo, vocals). Their quirky and unique musical tastes eventually evolved past jamming on old favorites and they soon began writing songs of their own. After working up a set list they decided to play their first live show but neglected to come up with a name for the duo.

Luckily a friend came up with the name Dance Attic at their first show upon observing the music they perform has a dusty, old vibe, like the vintage records one might find in an attic. After taking swing dance lessons together, Jimi cleared some space in the attic of Suzi's barn to create a practice space for dancing. So the name Dance Attic was a perfect fit.

Their original music is hard to pin down to a particular genre and is packed with old-time charm and fun. Many of the songs on this album were inspired by living the good life at the cabin on the South Shore of Lake Superior. This is especially evident in 'Cabin Song'. 'Startin' a Fire With You' could be considered their first "Hit Single". Brian Barber of perfectduluthday.com created a music video for the song that comes with the album and is also available for viewing on YouTube. 'Ain't Gonna, Don't Wanna' is an up beat old time/jazzy song about finding the perfect partner.

Sprinkled throughout the album are tributes to the Northland where they live. Such is the case with the sweet "Park Point Carousel Waltz". Naturally the prominence of Suzi's skillful accordion playing lead to the writing of a number of original/fun polka tunes including the infectious "South Shore Polka". On "Fizzy Yellow Beer" Jimi takes a playful swing at the current state of modern country music. "Chloe", a song about an outhouse of the same name is a fan favorite at their live shows. Dance Attic might just have the corner on the market for songs about an outhouse! "We've Got the Time" adds a sweet, mellow spot to the album, drawing influence from a band from the late1930's/early1940's called the Ink Spots. Suzi takes the lead on "I Think I'll Have a Brown" a tribute song to her favorite beer style. "Twenty Something" has a 1920's jazzy feel punctuated by an exuberant wazoo solo by Jimi.

The prime directive for Dance Attic is fun and good cheer! Together Suzi and Jimi's energy and positivity radiate through the album.
