Alexis P. Suter's voice is a force of nature. When she takes to the stage, thunder rumbles, lightning bolts slice the sky, and sparks fly everywhere! When Alexis sings the blues, you know she's been there. When she sings a tender ballad, you hear her heart. And when she rocks you .... baby, that's when you get your shuga fix!
Born in Brooklyn, NY, Alexis came from a strong musical background. Her mother was a music teacher and accomplished singer who worked with such notables as Harry Belafonte, Mahalia Jackson, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, and The Hall Johnson Choir. Often she would have Alexis sing in recitals and gospel plays and it wasn't long before Alexis realized that it was music and sharing it with others, that fed her soul.
Although her career is relatively new, Alexis has already toured internationally, and has shared the stage with some of the biggest names in blues. In the early 90's, she became a staple of underground garage music and the first African American woman signed to Sony-Epic in Japan. Her legendary "Slam Me Baby" distinguished her as a genuine underground star with penetrating vocals while Living Blues Magazine called, "Shuga Fix", Alexis' debut release, "fierce and fabulous". A seasoned gospel performer, Alexis is a featured vocalist with New York's acclaimed Illumination Gospel Chorale, and also solos with the Total Praise Gospel Choir. As a regular performer at the HYPERLINK "http://www.levonhelm.com" \t "_blank" Levon Helm "Midnight Ramble Sessions" in Woodstock, NY, one of her latest releases is a phenomenal CD/DVD recorded live at the Sessions.
A true vocal phenomenon, Alexis has been astounding audiences up and down the east coast for the past few years, backed by her tight, soul-rocking ensemble. The band is anchored by Ray Grappone's funky beats and Peter Bennett on bass, while Jimmy Bennett plays stinging guitar, and soulful singers, Vicki Bell, Glenn Turner and Linda Pino, ramp up the intensity that has captured the attention of some of the best players around.
Alexis' unprecedented, universal talent connects with the heart and soul of audiences everywhere. Her larger than life stage presence radiates to the farthest niche of performance space. Keep your eyes and ears open. Shooting stars are only seen if you're paying attention.
