ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Suzanne Petersen is an accomplished musician lyrical poet and vocalist pianist of many years experience. Suzanne writes about life experiences, her story telling is unique. She writes popular ballads with blues and soul influences and blues based swing tunes.
It’s been a long road from playing Carol King and Neil Young songs on guitar at Hooters Mexican restaurant in Coolangatta and being one of the few girls to surf in the Australian titles at Victor Harbour, South Australia in the 70’s.

Suzanne met Tim Gaze when he was commissioned to write for another Australian surf movie (after Morning of the Earth) in which she sang and performed two of her original songs for the movie “Band On The Run”.

A chance meeting and introduction to blues music occurred when she met Dutch Tilders in Sydney. This meeting destined her to live in Melbourne and tour with Dutch Tilders band as flautist and backing vocalist supporting acts like George Thorogood. During her part time she attained a Bachelor of Education in music including studying jazz piano. Suzanne moved on to playing piano bar gigs at 5 star hotels in Melbourne such as The Windsor.
1998 and 2001 Suzanne received awards from Unisong for original compositions.

In 2007 she collaborated with an old friend Mal Clarke of the Bullamakanka band and released her first album of original material Here Is My Song. The songs catch some of country Australia. She played at the Outback Pioneer at Ayers Rock resort and a 2 month solo residency at Mantra Tree Tops at Port Douglas where she played many of her original songs.

Suzanne released her second album called I Foresaw This Trouble which is a swinging roots, blues and ballads album of 14 original songs including eight blues tracks with great musicians like Gary Norman Guitar, Mike Mathews Bass Justin Humphries drums, guest harmonica player Ian Collard, guitar Geoff Achison, drums Gideon Marcus and Paul Richards. The album got better than good recognition having made it to no. 5 in the Australian Radio Blues and Roots Charts and remained there in 2015.

Suzanne played an East Coast tour appearing at Bangalow Bowls Club with old friend Tim Gaze on guitar. She played at the Reunion Café Surrey Hills Music Festival to a sold out dinner and show and was a featured artist at the Eltham Food and Wine Festival 2017. Her band has played at local venues in Melbourne such as the Opal Room Upwey Belgrave RSL, Elwood Blues Club Prince of Wales Hotel, The Cherry Bar, Clifton Hill Hotel and Prahran Market.

Suzanne has released a new album of 13 original songs in 2017 called So Many Nights at Mike Mathews studio with Suzanne on keys and vocals Mike on Bass and Gary Norman and Justin Humphries drums.

Suzanne Petersen has been around the Australian music scene for many many years, playing a wide range of venues and with a wider range of musicians, including the well loved Dutch Tilders, who introduced her to blues. She later studied music including jazz piano and taught in Victorian schools.

I Foresaw This Trouble ...This is her second CD and it’s very good. Suzanne wrote all of the 14 tracks, with some help on lyrics from Patrick McMahon. I have to admit I wasn’t too sure about the CD’s blues credentials as the first 2 tracks are a little more “loungey”, but then things really take off and I was hooked! The song writing is exceptional and this is a classy release.
Suzanne takes care of all vocals, plays flute and piano, with Gary Norman on guitar, Mike Mathews on bass and Justin Humphries on drums. Guests include Geoff Achison on guitar, Gideon Marcus and Paul Richards on drums and Ian Collard on harmonica. Backing vocalists include Warwick Thomas and Kirsty Cameron.
There are no technical credits included unfortunately, with the exception of the words Warwick Thomas Productions. Presentation is good quality 2-fold card with song list, musician credits and several great colour photos of the recording studio and musicians. Suzanne has also included a short comment on her reasons behind writing each of the songs.
Couple of fave tracks here are the beautiful “Blue Room”, and also “Going to New York” featuring Ian Collard on harp. Do yourselves a favour and grab a copy of this one...Dianne Forster MBAS

Suzannes second release is a triumph…she has not stopped writing blues based and popular ballads and swing tunes….she is passionate about her work and I’ve been witness to its continuous evolution…her life inspires her work at every turn, and she continues with commitment to this craft…she gives the world another piece of her art with each track.
Christine Sullivan


I will say as the disc plays the influences certainly reflect within each song . I can hear Janis Joplin ( cheap thrills era) within 'good lookin' Blues' to name but one track. It's truly a wonderful listen, great groove and feel and certainly a disc that reminds me of the blues clubs in the UK where low lighting and smoke filled air was complimented by great music and attentive listeners . My interpretation of good blues is the honest and open approach the music offers . I could listen to the disc all day long and still hear something different within each track. It's chilled and relaxed and really has all the qualities of not just a blues album but a quality interpretation that raises the bar for any budding artists who wish to learn about what the blues is about. From a musicians perspective, dare I say a drummer is a musician? playing straight no thrills rhythms from feel and interpretation is the best feeling in the world . Locking into a groove that is as absorbing as it is enjoyable. Thank you for making a great album and giving me the chance to share it with the listeners, best wishes
