'Suzette sings from her soul and she glows when she's singing. Every song is plucked with precision from her heart.' Mundy (Ireland)
Suzette Herft is an asset to a Festival such as ours in the Tamar Valley, here in George Town. We are a boutique Festival where friendships are formed, and Artists are treasured. Suzette has the gift of bridging locals and visitors into the festival and has as much joy entertaining locals at the Pub as she does on stage. Her beautiful presence, her voice, her words enrich us all and have people asking me to bring her back. Suzette has been our Choir Leader on several occasions and everyone enjoys her friendly style of teaching . A great Community Singer, wonderful stage performer. A singer /Songwriter to remember.

'Suzette writes beautiful melodies, and her insightful lyrics tell concise stories about the human condition, with great empathy.' Alan Edwards (Musical Australiana)
"If there was a voice that could temper a fire and whisper its secrets velvet bound.
If there was a voice that could move a river and finds its warm streams of gold.
If there was a voice that could glide the air and smooth a storm to bring a smile to you, it is the voice of Suzette Herft. To all who were there to hear Suzette sing her lovely songs I know you left knowing we were treated to a great performance."
(George Condos – Melbourne Music)
‘A charismatic singer-songwriter with a heart in tune with her world and a voice to go with it.’ (The Australian Songwriter - Australian Songwriters' Association)
