'Suzette sings from her soul and she glows when she's singing. Every song is plucked with precision from her heart.' Mundy (Ireland)

Born in Sri Lanka, but a true Melbournian at heart, this captivating contemporary troubadour takes you on a soulful heart journey.

Suzette has won wide acclaim for her brilliant tribute show to her hero - Joan Baez for being the ‘voice for the voiceless’ at numerous festivals around Australia, including standing ovations at recent Port Fairy Folk Festivals.  

She is a masterful facilitator of singing sessions and a ‘song catcher’ with her wide-ranging repertoire and her passion for inclusivity and ‘giving everyone a voice’. 

Suzette's passion for encouraging fellow songwriters has seen her founding and facilitating the Melbourne Songwriters' Session.

The title track  ‘Planting Roses’ from her most recent album ‘Roses’ (produced by the award winning Shane O’Mara), was a finalist in the Australian Independent Music Awards 2016.

She has been described as ‘ a charismatic singer-songwriter with a heart in tune with her world and a voice to go with it.’ (The Australian Songwriter)

Suzette has 6 cd releases available.  'Roses' is her new cd of original songs, currently receiving rave reviews for the quality of songwriting, her vocals and the brilliant production by award winning producer and guitarist Shane O'Mara.
Another new release is a duo album with Patrick Evans from their show 'Farewell Angelina' that tells the story about the iconic duo Bob Dylan and Joan Baez in both fascinating story and spine tingling harmony.  
Other cds include “Shining – A Diamond in the Rust”- A live concert of the songs from The Joan Baez Tribute show launched at Port Fairy Folk Festival in 2014 and repeated again in 2015 to a standing ovation; ‘Never too Late’, ‘A Place to call Home’ and ‘Both Sides Now’ produced by the late Hugh McDonald (Redgum). 

'Suzette sings from her soul and she glows when she's singing. Every song is plucked with precision from her heart.' Mundy (Ireland)

'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)

Roses

Suzette Herft

In cart Not available Out of stock

A new release by Suzette Herft, currently receiving rave reviews and produced by award winning producer and guitarist Shane O'Mara. Roses is a collection of songs from the highway of life... traversing grief and finding beauty... all amidst jangly guitars, and atmospheric twangy telecaster sounds, echoing the mood of Patty Griffin and the guitar work of our very own Buddy Miller and Ry Cooder (Shane O'Mara). It sits well in the Americana genre with great songwriting and sublime vocals from Suzette Herft.
