Sue Young got her start in the clubs and coffehouses of Albuquerque and Santa Fe, New Mexico, as well as a stint in Ecuador. Lured by the vibrant Austin singer songwriter scene, she moved to the capital of Texas in 1985. She wound up going in some unanticipated directions - she developed a career as a bilingual children’s entertainer and she also began focusing on writing and playing for spiritual venues. She released 2 albums of inspirational music - "From The Mother - Songs of the Sacred Feminine" in 1998 and "River Of Life" 2003, and a children’s CD "Legend Of The Quetzal - Tales And Tunes Of Latin America" in 2007.
Sue’s 4th CD release “Gliding” returns to her folk and singer songwriter roots. Nine original songs and two covers speak to change, loss, joy and redemption. In the folk tradition, Sue takes on social issues: the drug related violence in Mexico with “Angelitos - Little Angels”, and the effects of the 2010 BP Gulf oil spill with “Black Water” - a winner in the 2012 Discoveries Playlist Competition. Sue’s clear pure vocals and stellar production make the tracks shine. Recorded and co-produced by Bradley Kopp at The Ranch in Buda, TX, the album features outstanding support by Austin talent Richard Bowden, Javier Chaparro, Joel Guzman, Lloyd Maines, Glenn Fukunaga, Roscoe Beck and Bradley Kopp. Sue received a 2013 Texas Music Awards nomination for Female Vocalist Of The Year for "Gliding".
I love "Gliding".... what a lovely record! I'm really enjoying getting to know it and will be playing lots more from it in the weeks/months to come." -- Mark Michaelis, Acoustic Harmony - WGDR FM
