ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Listening to California native Suzanne Brewer seems almost intrusive into something very intimate and secretive, like a diary. Many great authors of the past kept journals, and we now have the privilege of reading their innermost thoughts in books found on shelves of a library or bookstore. Such books are treasures, as is Suzanne’s musical body of work. Reading her lyrics might remind you of flipping through pages of a leather-bound journal, each word lovingly imprinted on paper by fluid ink. Her writings meander through various emotions, and the music matches those moods, creating a contemplative and empathetic musical experience. Suzanne Brewer’s songwriting and emotional delivery are comparable to greats as diverse as Jeff Buckley, Joni Mitchell, and Billy Holiday. With velvety, haunting vocals and spare yet cleverly crafted piano lines, her songwriting stirs jazz, piano pop and folk into a rich, sophisticated base of eclecticism.

If you're feeling brittle, closed-hearted, numb – discover Suzanne’s music as antidote. Her yearning voice, cut-to-the-bone lyrics and dazzling melodies could explain, in part, the remarkable effect her music has on the listener, or maybe it's the joy that comes right out of the speakers and thumps you on the head. Or there's something about her intent, perhaps. She is so present in her performance, so in the moment, that you want to be just that present, too.
In the role of producer-as-lapidary and sideman on her most recent work, is the astoundingly gifted and sensitive Will Shanks. A producer with humor and intelligence, he makes each song its own world -- revealing the truth at the heart of each -- without sacrificing the narrative quality of each song. No mean trick. With complex arrangements, diverse instrumentation and achingly beautiful performances from Suzanne, the emotional catharsis of her songs are stirring. There aren't superlatives enough to describe the effect Suzanne’s music has on a body. Dump your Prozac. Discover Suzanne Brewer.

Suzanne...The Next Sarah
This CD is only a taste of Suzanne Brewer's talents. Prone To Wander shows the diversity and range in her voice and ablity to write.
When we starting playing her song "David" on CD93 in Monterey/Santa Cruz, her song easily became the number one most requested song. And when she opened for bigger names in concert, she sold more CDs. To hear this CD, you'd swear you were listening to either Sixpence None The Richer or Sarah McLachlan...yet still holding on to her own style and sound. I promise you this...Suzanne Brewer will be a big star. And Prone To Wonder is only the beginning.

Pure, unadulterated joy - in song(vocal)and instrumental style!
As a former professional acoustic bassist(toured with Tom Waits, recorded in studios,etc.)I appreciate good musicianship. The musicians on this cd are not only good, they listen and play the role of "accompanists" beautifully. And then there's Suzanne. Wow! What a voice! A voice can only sound like that when it's connected to a heart that's pure, kind and compassionate - and that's obviously where Suzanne's coming from! Awesome. A pure joy to listen to (headphones bring the vibrations even closer!)- over and over and over. If you need to sample a track, choose "Be," and just "let it BE!" To experience a healing, simply l i s t e n .

Tamara Turner, CD Baby.com


With velvety, ghostly, airy vocals, like a cross between Sarah McLachlan and Norah Jones, Suzanne Brewer stirs Jazz, Piano Pop and Folk in a rich, sophisticated base of heartbreak, defiance, despair and poignancy. Her songs can be shuffley and lulling, they can turn the screw in your heartbreak and they can be a breeze through your hair when everything else in life seems to be ignoring you. Prone to Wander is a arresting album of subtlety and courage, softness and power.

Lydia

Suzanne's voice is amazing. The world should know of her.
I love Suzanne's voice its just so soothing and lovely. I hope soon everyone can hear her voice. She definetly deserves it. She is just a wonderful person with a great heart. Maybe she can be the next person to win a grammy, right?

Cure for what ails you ... whatever ails you.
If you're feeling brittle, closed-hearted, numb -- put Prone to Wander on as antidote. Suzanne Brewer's breathtaking voice, cut-to-the-bone lyrics and dazzling melodies could explain, in part, the remarkable effect this disk repeatedly has on its listeners (even children!), or maybe it's the joy that comes right out of the speakers and thumps you on the head. Or there's something about her intent, perhaps. She is so present in her performance, so in the moment, that you want to be just that present, too.

In the role of producer-as-lapidary is the astoundingly gifted and sensitive Will Shanks. A producer with humor and intelligence, he makes each song its own world -- revealing the truth at the heart of each -- without sacrificing the narrative quality of the cd. No mean trick.

There aren't superlatives enough to describe the effect Prone to Wander has on a body. Dump your Prozac. Buy this cd.
