Susie Soho are a four-piece Irish alternative-rock band, whose members have opened for and shared the stage with artists such as Damien Rice, The Frames, Gabriella Cilmi, Mundy, David Jordan, and Damien Dempsey. Describing themselves as “the kind of band you’d get if Gemma Hayes and Dave Grohl had some kind of musical lovechild”, their catchy, guitar-driven songs have a distinctively Irish sound.
Featuring Jason Maher (bass), Niall Campion (guitar) and Mia Fitzgerald (drums), Susie Soho was formed by singer and guitarist Tony Fitzpatrick in 2009.
Tony did things backwards. The last year was spent working by day and establishing a recording studio to produce Susie Soho’s debut album by night. The resulting record, “Where All The Ladders Start”, was mixed by the renowned Greek electro-acoustic composer and producer Anthony P. (aLfa.P, Stereo Nova, Supermarket) and mastered by Geoff Pesche at Abbey Road Studios (Lily Allen, Coldplay, Gorillaz), all before the first band rehearsal was arranged.
Susie Soho made their live debut at Oxegen 2009, which will be followed up with the release of their first single, Spinning Top (with remix by Ruairi Lynch) on October 30th 2009.
- Tony got Physics grinds from Dominic of Bellx1, back when Bellx1 and Damien Rice were still Juniper. One thing led to another and Tony ended up playing lead guitar for Damien before ‘O’ became a huge international hit.
- The band name comes from the the title of the 2000 jazz album “Good Morning Susie Soho” by the Esbjorn Svensson Trio.
- Niall is something of a media graphics wunderkind. As well as directing the video for Spinning Top, he has made videos for the likes of Bellx1 and Hybrasil.
