Susan Wylde is a vocalist/songwriter/pianist.
She has lived and/or performed in such culturally rich locations as Europe, Thailand, Hawaii, Japan, China, USA, Canada and Cuba. Susan is a classically trained pianist and a graduate of the Western Conservatory of Music.
Her love of singing lead her into performing in musical theatre at a young age in Canada. Her new CD, co-written with Eddie Bullen, is called Shambhala. The 14 tracks on this CD draw from pop, traditional and contemporary jazz as well as blues and R&B. Susan’s songwriting and voice speak of clarity, vibrancy, emotional depth and soulfulness. Not a copy act, she focuses attention on the individuality of her own artistic sensibilities - JAZZ TIMES. Susan has worked with several other artists (vocal, piano, percussion) in the studio and on stage. However, this is her first jazz CD. Shambhala has been nominated for a jazz award and several jazz festivals in Canada and outside Canada have invited her to perform on their mainstage.
Susan’s diverse influences include: Herbie Hancock, Joe Jackson, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, John Legend, Sting, Spyro Gyra, Steeley Dan, and Joni Mitchell. Susan’s writing partner, Eddie Bullen, is a Juno award-winning producer, writer and performer. In 2008, Eddie was chosen for the job of music director for the Beijing Summer Olympics music gala.
