lexis P. Suterâ€™s voice is a force of nature. Thunder rumbles, lightening bolts from the sky, sparks fly everywhere! Her live performances are all this and more. You will be moved immediately and you will be MOVING! When she sings the blues you know itâ€™s genuine, you know sheâ€™s been there. When she sings a tender ballad, you hear her heart. And when she rocks you, baby thatâ€™s when you get your SHUGA FIX!
The Music Boxâ€™s John Metzger says â€œShuga Fix,â€ the magnificent debut release from Alexis P. Suter, â€œvery well may be the perfect remedy for everything that currently ails contemporary R&B.â€ Living Blues Magazine calls Shuga Fix â€œfierce and fabulous.â€ Although her career is relatively new, Alexis has already toured nationally and internationally, including radio and television performances and has shared the stage with some of the biggest names in blues. As Peter Hay at Twin Vision puts it: â€œSheâ€™s just that good!â€
Born in Brooklyn, NY, Alexis came from a strong musical background. Her mother was a music teacher and an accomplished singer who worked with notables such as Harry Belafonte, Mahalia Jackson, Sister Rosetta Tharpe and The Hall Johnson Choir. Her Mom would have Alexis sing in recitals and Gospel plays and it wasnâ€™t long before Alexis realized that it was music and sharing it with others that fed her soul.
In the early 90â€™s, Alexis became a staple of underground garage and the first African American woman signed to Sony-Epic (Japan). Her legendary Club Shelter Anthem â€œSlam Me Baby,â€ distinguished her as a genuine underground star with penetrating vocals. For Sony she brought forth an EP titled â€œDrums of Freedom,â€ including the hit â€œWe Need Each Other.â€
Miss Suter solos with New Yorkâ€™s acclaimed Illumination and Total Praise Gospel Choirs. Her debut CD with Hipbone Records is being widely received by the music community and Triple A Radio nationwide.
Alexis regularly performs live at the Levon Helm Midnight Ramble Sessions in Woodstock, NY. These live performances are not to be missed because her unprecedented, universal talent connects with the heart and soul of audiences everywhere. Her larger than life stage presence radiates with the power of a white-hot super nova to the farthest niche of performance space. She has just released a phenomenal CD/DVD recorded live at Levon Helm Studios from The Midnight Ramble Sessions. Keep your eyes and ears open. Shooting stars can only be seen if youâ€™re paying attention.
