EASY LISTENING: Mature, POP: Today''s Top 40
Susie writes and sings about a broad range of topics - sexuality and power, life and death, vulnerability and self-doubt - in addition to romantic love. Her gift as a songwriter is the ability to explore these areas and share unique insights and positive perspectives.
Original songs are inspired by her own often-turbulent life experiences and deep soul searching. Artful renditions of songs penned by others expand on the "shameLess" theme - which in its broadest definition means self aware, self accepting and self loving.
Delivered with Susie''s up close and personal vocals, this collection of songs will touch your heart, nourish your spirit, and stimulate both your brain and your libido.

Susie was born in Oakland, California to Chinese immigrant parents. From age 3 she was raised in San Francisco''s Chinatown where her family owned a sewing factory.
From an early age, Susie had a natural ability with words. Her elementary school teacher loved a poem she wrote and copied it into every student''s Christmas card to their parents. Music seemed to come naturally too, she found from 2 consecutive summer scholarships to learn violin at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. And with a natural inclination to sing, she sang in the elementary school "glee club" and heartily in the sewing factory as she hemmed up skirts and shirts, inspiring the ladies working nearby to sing along.
Unfortunately, her traditional Chinese upbringing meant that helping in the family business and making money took priority over developing her creative potential. From junior high school on, she didn''t do much in music beyond listening to radio and buying records - like most kids her age. It wasn''t until after college and years working for Bechtel, a large engineering firm where she wrote technical proposals, that she realized something was missing from her life. She took a leave of absence to see where her heart would take her.
A week later, she bought a Yamaha baby grand piano - which she didn''t even know how to play! One thing led to another - from piano lessons to voice lessons to songwriting lessons. Now, after years of dedication, inspiration and perspiration, her debut CD "shameLess" is finished and available!
