Sue Casson is a singer songwriter. Her songs have been heard on BBC radio and TV, on stage in shows, and in cabaret from London to New York.
Clever, catchy, sensitive and sharp by turns her songs range from contemporary comment to torchsong ballad with theatre at the heart.
At present she is working with Tom Blackmore on English Cabaret, which they founded 5 years ago to provide a platform for their work onstage in shows and cabaret, and increasingly online.
Their future plans include recordings of a new set of songs from a woman, a piano... alongside more performances. Film, recording and further performances of Dreams of Peace & Freedom looking towards 2020, the 75th anniversary of IMT Nuremberg, with regular cabaret performances of The Human's in the Telling.
Casson is also a regular voice-over artist, occasional actor and a keen, hands on supporter of creativity in the young. Her work has lead to a number of long standing creative partnerships.
'witty lyrics and soaring melodies'
'Strikingly beautiful melody with sorrowful folk inflections'
'There is an Englishness to the music of Casson, not Britishness.
Traditional in the truest sense -
folk songs that are timeless.'
