Alexis P. Suter is the owner of that big, booming voice you can hear roaring out of Brooklyn into the heart of North America and beyond. Alexis P. and her band are on the rise as accolades pour in and they continue to captivate audiences from town to town. Miss Suter and her powerful and unique ensemble artfully blend the lines between Blues, Soul, Roots and Rock music. Alexis' voice ranges from a pained passion to explosive and soul bearing. Suter and her band have been blazing trails and taking their music to festivals and venues both nationally and internationally.
When the great Bluesman B.B. King first heard Alexis sing when the band opened for BB King at his club in New York, he was visibly impressed and said so after her opening set for him at BB Kings in NYC. Shaking his head in wonder in his characteristic way, he remarked…. It’s a rare thing to share the stage with great talent like that young lady.
APSB continues to be in high demand at North American Roots and Blues festivals, venues and events. At the highly prestigious Blues Music Awards, Alexis was nominated for Best Contemporary Female Artist in 2017, The Koko Taylor Vocalist in 2015 and for Best Soul/Blues Female Vocalist in 2013. Presented by The Blues Foundation in Memphis TN.
Alexis P. Suter was born in Brooklyn, New York, United States. She began singing in church at the age of four, and met the Mills Brothers and saw them perform in concert five years later. Her interest in music developed at school where she learned to play the sousaphone, and expanded her knowledge of gospel music when attending different churches in her neighborhood. She was also influenced by the work of Ruth Brown, whom she heard on her family's radio. Suter also credited her mother as a source of musical inspiration, given that she had previously provided backing vocals for Mahalia Jackson, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Harry Belafonte, Mavis Staples and Dionne Warwick amongst others.
This MACLive event is sponsored by Berchem Moses, Attorneys and Counselors at Law.
