Biography

Rock•-and-roll (räk’‘n rol’) ; noun; popular music usually played on electronically amplified instruments and characterized by a persistent heavily accented beat, repetition of phrases and often country, folk and blues elements.

A page torn from the dictionary can’t begin to define the spirit of rock and roll exuded by Toronto native Suzie McNeil and her sophomore solo effort, the fittingly titled Rock-n-Roller. Loaded with eleven tracks that run the gamut from the insatiably catchy first single “Let’s Go” to the chugging, break-up ball-buster “Free,” Rock-n-Roller is the product of Suzie’s fierce attitude, independent spirit and furious determination to have the voice of a strong woman heard.

“Usually, a woman singing rock has to have an element of strength or balls to her. Are people scared of that? It’s hard to say,” Suzie says. “I think a lot of times men especially want women to be soft and gentle, and not all of my songs are like that. But I couldn’t do it any other way.”

Co-writing the entire album with long-time musical cohort Marti Frederiksen (Aerosmith, Mötley Crüe), Suzie harnessed the true power behind her voice. Suzie found herself melting through the shyness and vulnerability she had once felt as a songwriter. The result is Rock-n-Roller, an album packed with songs that reveal Suzie to her core as a lover, a fighter and a rocker.
