Suzanne Slair’s New Album, Nowhere Road, Released This Week
With contributions from notable rock and folk musicians
West Hollywood, CA – October 10, 2017 – Americana-Rocker Suzanne Slair released her latest album, Nowhere Road, on October 6 on Shirley Boy Records. Produced by Grammy-nominated John Keane (Indigo Girls, REM, Widespread Panic) at his studio in Athens, GA, Nowhere Road is a collection of deeply personal pop-country tracks that touch on diverse themes—from sweet love in the breezy song “Firefly” and the tenderly affectionate “The Wedding Song,” the lyrics of which represent Suzanne’s real life wedding vows, to the lies and censorship of today’s mainstream media in her acerbic song “Smoke and Mirrors” where Suzanne pulls no lyrical punches. Suzanne’s songwriting style is direct and often straight from the heart. The catchy lead single, “Grace,” won a John Lennon Songwriting Award in the folk category.

- Bridget Law (Elephant Revival) and Andy Carlson (who The New York Times referred to as a “demon fiddler”), both on fiddle on the track “Grace”
...and on various tracks throughout the album:
- John Keane (Grammy-nominated producer and musician on guitar, banjo, bass, mandolin, and backing vocals) and blues/rock singer-guitarist Caroline Aiken (on backing vocals)

About Suzanne Slair:
Singing and songwriting professionally since the age of 6 in her hometown of Calgary, Canada, Suzanne recorded and performed in hundreds of folk festivals and concerts at a very early age with international folk artist, Paulo (Paul Finkleman), and later studied voice in NYC under the Metropolitan Opera’s mezzo-soprano, Ariel Bybee. She composed and recorded musical scores and dance numbers for off-Broadway shows, then expanded her musical roots fronting rock bands and playing guitar at many NYC clubs. Suzanne later moved to Austin TX, where she developed a deeper connection to her songwriting. Never Return the Same was Suzanne’s first full-length album, produced by David Allen (Robin Trower, Black Label Society, Reverend Horton Heat, Stryper). Her first single, “Blind,” was released in January of 2016 and quickly became an underground hit. In 2016 Suzanne’s song “Grace” won a John Lennon Songwriting Award in the folk category. Her latest collection of songs on this release, Nowhere Road, is deeply personal and beautifully crafted, incorporating a blend of various American roots styles including country, folk, indie, bluegrass and R&B.
