Shudders & Rings

by Suzanna Choffel

jazz influenced folk-a blend of sweet melodies, lush guitar, subtle beats, and clever lyrics. if Sade, Joni Mitchell, Lauryn Hill, and Edie Brickell all sat down to dinner, this is what their conversation would sound like.

Album Notes
YAY!!! The new shipment of SHUDDERS & RINGS has arrived! You may now continue purchasing the album, now in it's new Matte look. ; ) Cheers!

Suzanna Choffel's music is comprised of some beautiful things that can be found in styles such as folk, R&B, hip-hop, and jazz. the genre thing just isn't working out for her. her rich, sultry voice could easily be heard over straight rhythm & blues or an old folk song, but her music stretches outside these boundaries-adding modern twists to traditional methods. that being said, if folk music is literally that-music for the people, a simple & heart-felt music that bleeds raw and speaks a million pictures in a few verses, then yes, her music is folk. but she plays an electric hollow-body that comes out more jazz than folk, more funk than rock. tired of the "strum-strum-strum" she found so many singer-songwriters over-abusing, she began to use her fingers as drumsticks, developing a percussive picking style that lended rhythmic variation to her melodies.

her vocal stylings reflect that of the many R&B and jazz singers she admired as a youngster, but over the years she has interwoven the smooth silk with a bit of scratchy wool taken from Latin chanteuses and folk singers.

lyrically, she builds metaphors and clever rhymes that hint at some great desire, frustration, or revelation that we have all experienced in some form or fashion. wherever she performs her music, people take notice immediately. as one audience member told her "most of the time, i walk into a club and the music is so assaulting i just want to leave. your music is so welcoming i couldn't help but stay". Choffel was born and raised in Austin, TX where she has performed live since the age of 13. she performs both solo and with her band as she expands her music beyond Texas borders with several tours slated for the year.

What talent!
Love the CD... love her in person! Fresh sound -- familiar, yet different. Bought a bunch of CDs for friends around the country. Spread the word!

sharon johnson

I just love your voice, I wish your version of Johnny Cash, Ring of Fire was on a CD that is my favorite, I play it over and over.

Claudia Zambelli

Mare Mare

Thank you!!
Thank you is all I've been able to say when I listen to Suzanna Choffel! I sing in the shower cause that's where my voice belongs, but my heart is always singing her words. If you've never experienced Suzanna Choffel, I suggest you get yourself this CD. Thanks to her, indeed!!


a great listen - very jewl-esque
i'm sure suzanna has gotten this feedback already, but the sound on this cd is very jewel-esque (that's a good thing!), but with her own special touch. the thing that impressed me the most is that while each song has its own distinct and unique feel, it all holds together for a really nice album with great flow. it really is a great listen!


Great sounds !!
I have seen this artist locally many times and love each performance. With a sexy voice and music that makes you feel good, she does not dissapoint those who love this kind of sound. I look foward to her next album. Great music and lyrics !!

Patrick Matthew

Fabulous CD... Really Great Music and what a wonderful voice. Each track is a true Gem. Yes spread the word for this one will go far.

You won't be dissapointed with this truly beautiful music.

Buy several of these CD's and give them to your friends. They will thank you for introducing them
to this bright new talent.

suzzana choffel is my dads couzin. she is great and i love her music. when her album first came out she mailed it to us and i fell in love with it. this cd is awesome!


shrudders and rings
Greate to find Suzanna at You Tube. When does she comes to the netherlands??


Dreamy and elegant.
Suzanna's music is like a dream that lingers. It will stay with you as a thread in the back of your thoughts; you'll find yourself humming songs like "The Challenge" and "First Breath" and "Hey Mister" as you go about your business, and then want nothing more than to listen to them again at the end of the day. Her songs resonate with understatement. All the emotions expressed in her lyrics are utterly genuine and relatable, mixed in with a subtle sense of humor. If you could call this "folk music," (a weird and imprecise term) it'd be folk for grownups. And as for that voice...well, there's nothing quite like it. I give "Shudders and Rings" 4 stars only because I'm 500 percent certain that what she does next will be even better. Pick it up immediately.
