Suzie Bradford’s sultry pop vocals are like a smooth sip of nectar. She’s been influenced by such artists as Tori Amos, Sarah McLachlan & Aimee Mann, but more often, this Washington-born singer/songwriter draws inspiration from those close to her—a community of fantastic friends and musicians. In 2003 she joined with guitarist/backup vocalist (and now husband) Ben Bradford to start the musical group known as “The Side Project.” They quickly began doing what they love best, playing crowd-pleasing adult contemporary music as often as they could. In 2010, they released their third album, “Wake Up Call.” The Side Projects’ music also has been played in Starbucks across the country and radio stations around the world.
