SUZIE STAPLETON is a Sydney-born alternative rock / gothic blues artist who honed her craft in Melbourne before relocating to the UK in 2015. She has built a loyal fanbase, captivating audiences with electric live performances using her midnight vocal to weave shards of poetry into guitar-driven noir soundscapes laced with intricate melodies.

Stapleton recently recorded new material with Gavin Jay (Jim Jones Revue/The Righteous Mind) on bass, Ian White (Gallon Drunk) on drums. The first single ‘You Were There’ was released in May 2017 - a hypnotic dreamscape underpinned by Jay & White’s mesmeric pulse. The follow up “Yesterday’s Town” is due for release on October 27th.

Stapleton has opened for artists such as Mark Lanegan, Mick Harvey, and Boss Hog and appeared at festivals including Liverpool Sound City, Camden Rocks Festival, Colours of Ostrava and Binic Folk Blues Festival.

In June 2017 Stapleton appeared on guest vocals on Lydia Lunch & Cypress Grove’s unlikely covers album, aptly titled “Under The Covers” (Rustblade Records). This is a continuation of Stapleton’s collaborations with Cypress Grove on The Jeffrey Lee Pierce Sessions Project. She first cameoed on the project’s third album ‘Axels & Sockets’ (feat. Iggy Pop, Nick Cave, Debbie Harry, Thurston Moore + others) which has lead to her working closely with Grove on the fourth album currently in production.

“Suzie is a great balance to this song and all the fucking songs she sings on. We needed some more of that vaginal power on this record and I knew Suzie was the perfect girl to bring that." Lydia Lunch

"Slow, lustrous, moody and magnificent. Delicate touches of deep rivers and gothic noir... her voice, and those lyrics; that throaty, coated breath which covers you like a vampire’s cape." I-94 Bar

“Like many of the best singers Stapleton has an unusual voice. Pervading all her singing is a huskiness that approaches Tom Waits territory, but beneath and supporting that is a supremely delicate and precise feel for the moment...like hearing Cat Power at her very best.” The AU Review

“Utterly mesmeric, exuding charisma. Fantastic stuff - one to look out for."
Joe Cushley, Resonance FM UK
