WILLAMETTE WEEK (pop rock) Susie Blue's new debut may be only six songs long, but it presents a fully formed artistic voice, one ready to capture Portland and possibly well beyond. One of the busy Ezra Holbrook's most expansive and polished productions to date, the EP Sink adorns Blue's affectingly melodic compositions with whispery keyboards, shimmering guitars and solid rhythmic support. Blue does the rest, making sure the earnest emotion in her voice penetrates that smooth pop backdrop. JEFF ROSENBURG 'What I find in Susie Blue are the qualities I enjoyed when I first discovered Christine McVey: songwriting, vocal delivery, and the ability to carry me to another place.' -Kevin Sutter, Tazmoe Music (radio promoter for Jack Johnson,Dave Mathews,Norah Jones,David grey) The Oregonian An appealing singer and guitarist, she's knocked around the area's clubs for years and won some supporters, but her new EP, 'Sink,'(co-produced by the ubiquitous Ezra Holbrook) is the sort of mature, writerly pop that could be the start of her breakthrough.
