Suzanne Santo is currently on tour and will make a stop in Nashville for a show at City Winery on Friday, April 1st.
In 2021, road warrior Suzanne Santo released her second solo effort, Yard Sale, via Soundly Music, and has spent most of 2022 tearing up the highways supporting the album.
What To Know About Suzanne Santo
Ohio-bred, Santo was scouted as a model and actress at 14 years old, spent her summer vacations working in locations like Tokyo, and later moved to New York City, where she attended the Professional Children’s School alongside classmates like Jack Antonoff and Scarlett Johansson.
Moving to Los Angeles in her late teens, she formed acclaimed duo HoneyHoney and released three albums, working with top-shelf Americana labels like Lost Highway and Rounder Records along the way. Working with Butch Walker on 2017’s Ruby Red resulted in an offer to join Walker’s touring band, followed one year later by a similar request from Hozier.
After Ruby Red, Santo needed a change. She decided to relocate to Austin — a city whose fingerprints are all over Yard Sale, thanks to appearances by hometown heroes like Shakey Graves and Gary Clark Jr. — and falling in love all over again. Throughout it all, Santo continued writing songs, filling Yard Sale with the ups and downs of a life largely spent on the run.
About Her Latest LP
Musically, Santo’s at the top of her game, writing her own string arrangements and singing each song an agile, acrobatic voice. She easily incorporates the gamut of influences—indie-rock, neo-soul, gospel, and even cinematic strings in this beautifully bold 12-track testament to lessons learned, making peace with the past, and looking optimistically to the future.
“This record is about the things I’ve left behind and the things I’ve held onto,” Santo says. “I was broken up with while writing the record. I fell in love again while writing the record. And I learned to fearlessly follow my gut, in all places of my life, while making this record.”
Yard Sale signifies an emotional unpacking, a shedding of baggage. “I just kept marching forward,” she adds. “I’ve gotten good at knowing what I need to keep holding onto and what I don’t.”
