The Home of Everything Sue Pyper!
Sue Pyper is an award winning Canadian singer/songwriter originally from London, UK. Her personal travels, both geographical and emotional, have inspired gentle, insightful, and heartfelt songs that look at life from all angles and visit themes of both hope and hardship.
Women of Substance Radio describes her music as "Heavily influenced by pioneering singer/songwriters of the 70s like John Denver, Jim Croce and Joni Mitchell, Sue Pyper's music is rooted in timeless acoustic folk, and on par with current folk artists like Mary Chapin Carpenter, Patty Griffin and Dar Williams."
The London born singer/songwriter immigrated to BC in 2000, where she has charmed audiences with her beautiful vocals, eloquent songwriting, and an unpredictable British “inside voice” that occasionally finds its way over the microphone.
Pyper’s first recording “Before You Learn to Fly” was considered a wonderful new discovery by folk music notables such as New York radio host, Bob Sherman, performer Christine Lavin, and Sing Out Magazine and received international airplay and reviews. The album received nominations in five categories in the Mpower Independent Music Awards and the title track won “Best Song” in 2003. Sue's second CD, "Tail Lights In The Rain" was released in 2009 and also garnered favourable reviews as well as new fans. The music video of the title track earned her an award from CM Broadcasting in Australia in 2010.
It’s not uncommon to hear Sue’s fans and supporters recall the first time they heard her perform, offering stories of their musical discovery. Sue’s natural ability to put audiences at ease makes her a fun and personable stage host, allowing her to share her music in a way that is especially memorable. This personable approach adds to the popularity of her music and has attracted fans from all over the world. Sue also performs with female trio Voices Three, adding a sweet melodic voice as well as a catalyst for energetic stage banter.
