¡Escucha, Canta, y Muevese!
Listen, Sing and Move!
with Bilingual Storyteller and Songwriter Sue Young

Sue grew up in a big, music-loving family. Her mother played the piano, her father played baritone ukelele and tenor guitar, all five children played an instrument, and everyone sang. Sue started on ukelele at age 8, moved to guitar at 11, and has been singing and playing ever since. Music heard in her home while growing up included the Beatles, Bob Dylan, the Rolling Stones, Joan Baez, Joni Mitchell, Bonnie Raitt, Stevie Wonder, Jimi Hendrix, Stan Getz, Bach, and Rogers and Hammerstein.

Sue’s 2012 release “Gliding” brings her full circle back to her folk and singer songwriter roots. The album was nominated for 2013 Texas Music Award for Female Vocalist of the Year and it includes “Black Water” – a song about the 2010 BP Gulf oil spill. “Black Water” was a winner in the 2012 Discoveries Playlist Competition.
