On Friday, September 23rd, much-acclaimed roots singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Suzie Vinnick releases her seventh solo album, “Fall Back Home” at Toronto’s 3030 Dundas. Over a storied career now spanning three decades, Suzie has earned 10 Maple Blues Awards, three Juno nominations, two wins in the prestigious International Songwriting Competition, and major peer respect.
“Fall Back Home” reaffirms Vinnick’s mastery of a wide range of musical styles. The gospel-tinged positive anthem “Lift You Up” fits seamlessly alongside the rockin’ blues of “Salt & Pepper” and the gentle folk/roots ballads “City & Skies” and “Talk To Me,” and the album is given consistency via the emotional eloquence of Suzie’s songwriting and her strong, warm vocals.
Add in the crisp production of Danny Greenspoon and instrumental, vocal and writing contributions from a genuine A-list of Canadian roots music artists and you have a compelling and well-curated collection of songs demanding and rewarding your attention.
