Sue Bailey

In this age of slick, pre-packaged, “American Idol”-style pop music, Sue Bailey is a rare and wonderful jewel: a true singer-songwriter who understands love, and better yet can communicate its nuances to any audience, whether she is playing to a packed East Coast nightclub, a renowned Nashville café or a local coffeehouse. With each guitar chord, with each story she tells of how a song was created, Sue, with her warm stage presence and ear-to-ear smile, creates a uniquely energized and interactive environment with her listeners, who leave feeling as if they are her new best friends. And it doesn’t hurt that her voice is as rich and rangy as they come, serving her well as she belts out her unique mix of both country/folksy/bluesy ballads and what she calls her humorous “kickin’ fun tunes.”
