Canadian Singer/Songwriter Suzie Ungerleider Announces UK Tour

Following the release of her acclaimed album ‘My Name is Suzie Ungerleider‘, three-time Canadian Juno Award nominee Suzie Ungerleider has announced a string of 2022 UK shows in an extension to her North American tour. Beginning on 1st June at London’s The Water Rats, the tour marks Suzie’s first performances in the UK of her new music.

Sharing her excitement towards a much-anticipated return to UK audiences, Suzie said: “To come play live in the UK again and to share new songs, as well as old favourites, makes me very happy.  I’ve always felt a special connection with the folks in the United Kingdom with their appreciation of dark humour, stories, and love of language.”

Met with critical acclaim and earning Suzie her third Juno Award nomination, ‘My Name is Suzie Ungerleider‘ is the first album since the artist formerly known as Oh Susanna announced that she would now record and perform under her birth name.

The name change is both a personal and political decision, fuelled by her realisation that ‘Oh Susanna,’ the Stephen Foster song of 1848, contained racist imagery and a belief system that she wanted no part of. She came to understand its historic associations to Minstrelsy, a tradition both demeaning and dehumanising to black people. Leaving Oh Susanna behind, she’s become her true self with a wonderful record that marks a fresh beginning, a collection of new compositions that refresh and redefine who Suzie Ungerleider is.

Audiences will be treated to album highlights such as characteristically searing ‘Baby Blues,’ a song about how the traumatic events we witness when we’re young can haunt and indeed shape our older selves; ‘Mount Royal‘, a folky Americana tune with roots influences that follows another personal tale from the chronicles of Suzie’s life, and ‘Pumpkins‘, about that darkness in the soul that is so beautifully reflected in the decay of Autumn.
