About suzanne mcneil
Connecting the geographical and musical dots in Suzanne McNeil’s young life could get complicated. She was born in Massachusetts, but grew up on the east coast of Canada on Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia, where making music is as natural as breathing. Her love of people led her to a career in social work, but it was her love of singing that pulled her away from her island home to a life of road tours across the American Midwest---her first true musical journey where she thought she was a little closer to Heaven---getting paid to sing. Thousands of miles and hundreds of performances gave her the chance to hone her talents---her rootsy soulful singing, her jazzy and folk-rock songwriting, and a powerful on-stage charisma most seasoned professions still hope for.
