Susana Sawoff’s music has a universal- almost timeless quality. Born to a Spanish mother and Australian father, she has travelled much of the world, gaining two degrees in literary studies whilst performing constantly with “Sawoff Shotgun”- the electro trash band she has with her two sisters.
With her Debut Album “Wrapped up in a little Sigh” she has made her leap into the Jazz World. She was announced “Artist of the month” (January 2012) at Austrian Radiostation Fm4. She has been nominated for the Austrian Amadeus Award three times.
DEBUT ALBUM: “Wrapped Up In A Little Sigh” (Sevenandahalf Records 2012)
“The Diana Krall from Austria” Kronen Zeitung (Anna Richter Trummer)
“If you like soulful Popjazz – the good kind - you will love “Wrapped up in a little Sigh”. You will be remembered of Nina Simone.” Fm4
“Susana Sawoff accomplishes a feat with her Debut Album: Alternative Youth Radio Station as well as exclusive Culture Radio Stations play her songs” Kleine Zeitung (Gerald Winter)
Listening to Susana's Album Wrapped up in a little Sigh is a bit like a musical Join-The-Dots. Eventually the whole picture emerges- and a rather beautiful picture it is. A unique journey to embark on with one trusted travelling companion, Susana's voice: soothing, warm, engulfing, sometimes melancholic but always by your side. The Songs can be described as a blueprint of Susana's microcosm. Its finely chiselled lyrics put the focus on the little things and act as a very personal looking glass on life. This magnification transforms Susana's microcosm into everyone's macrocosm for the length of the album, possibly a lot longer.
Sparsely instrumented with only a classic Jazz-Trio setup (piano, bass, drums) the songs achieve greatness through reduction, simmering down to the core of the story. A rare moment of clarity in this over-informed world, a musical calligraphy, if you will.
