Oh Susanna (Suzie Ungerleider) is celebrating the twentieth anniversary of her critically acclaimed debut album Johnstown with a re-mastered release.
Originally released in 1999, Johnstown is considered a contemporary folk-noir masterpiece brimming with ghostly songs of melancholic beauty and menace. Oh Susanna‘s voice evokes a cinematic narration to simultaneously warm the heart and chill the blood. This and her follow up Sleepy Little Sailor launched Oh Susanna in the UK and in celebration of this special anniversary, she will be performing Johnstown in its entirety as well as favourites from her catalogue.
Support from Matt The Electrician
Despite the name, Matt the Electrician is no longer an electrician, focusing instead on a music career that has spanned the course of two decades, a dozen records, and thousands of shows. His music, however, remains rooted in his blue collar beginnings, with lyricism that embraces the day-to-day, the mundane, the beauty of the ordinary. Matt’s latest release was a double CD that came out in mid 2017 called The Doubles. The CDs were the culmination of a 2-year vinyl 45 collaborative project with 6 different Austin bands providing backup on 2 songs each. Currently, Matt is working on songs for another record, and plans to go into the studio in 2019.
