Suzanna Dee now known as Sue Dee as an all-round Singer.
Born in Leeds, West Yorkshire, Sue understood that she could naturally harmonise at the age of 8 after a school assembly where her head teacher looked rather baffled. Then she went on to teach herself to play piano where this progressed her song writing skills at the age of 13 which she mastered whilst dedicating her time on her lunch breaks in the music block at school.
Sue is an all-round singer/songwriter, backing vocalist, producer and vocal arranger. Which started out way back in 1997 where her first track, called ‘Evolver by Evolver’, was released under the Tidy Trax label (Fabric of Life). The track was played all around the world by Top DJ’s including DJ Tiesto, DJ Paul van Dyk and Ian Van Dahl to name just a few.
Since then, Sue’s heart of commitment and determination had the pleasure to work with the likes Spice Girls doing production and vocal arranging along with S-Club 7, Billie Piper, Jane McDonald to name a few. She has worked with many other singers including, various PWL artists, Alexandra O’Neil, Tony Hadley, Lulu, Beverley Knight to name a few along with performing at prestigious venues such at MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Royal Albert Hall, Hyde Park and various large Prides across the country.
Talking of Prides; she is now an UK Ambassador for Pride in Weston for 2023 and has nearly finished what will be the UK Pride Anthem and her mission is not to be her song but this to reach out to the larger of the LBGTQIA+ community of artists to be involved.
Sue was one of ‘The 100’ Judges from BBC One’s programme ‘All Together Now’ Series One and Series Two along with Channel 5’s ‘Jane and Friends’ supporting Jane McDonalds’ show as her backing vocalist.
Sue has also had an official Top 40 hit back in 2003 with the cover of Marie McKee’s ‘Show Me Heaven’ as a dance anthem which was signed with Ministry of Sound on various albums globally to which was granted three Gold & one Silver Disc. She now currently co-writes and producers EDM tracks with global successful DJ’s that work under Above & Beyond; Ajunabeats; Vandit records, All Around The World (AATW) to name a few.
Sue can’t wait to hear you and see you bring that Talent to Weston Super Mare.
