Suzie Stapleton Short Info

“This is a lady that is simply too good to be ignored. Suzie Stapleton is gonna be huge. You heard it here first...”
- Louder Than War

Suzie Stapleton’s voice commands a room. In an instant it spirals from a charcoal murmur to a thundering roar "like a 747 taking off." It wraps around words channeled from a primal source sometimes direct, and often disarmingly poetic.

The Sydney-born artist honed her craft in Melbourne where she gained a following for her engaging performances, fierce guitar playing, and intelligent songwriting. Her second EP “Obladi Diablo” was released through Beast Records (France) and she has toured Europe several times including appearances at Binic Folk Blues Festival and Colours of Ostrava, and supported artists such as Mark Lanegan, Mick Harvey and Jim Jones & The Righteous Mind.

Whilst in London in 2013 Stapleton crossed paths with Cypress Grove, the producer of The Jeffrey Lee Pierce Sessions Project. He invited her to record for the project’s third album ‘Axels & Sockets’ which was released in 2014 (Glitterhouse, Germany) and includes Iggy Pop, Nick Cave, Primal Scream, Debbie Harry, and Thurston Moore amongst others. Stapleton appears on the album’s first single “Constant Limbo (Constant Rain)” alongside Mark Lanegan, Crippled Black Phoenix, and Bertrand Cantat, as well as album track “My Cadillac”. She also recently lent her voice to Lydia Lunch & Cypress Grove’s album “Twin Horses”.

Now based in London, Stapleton is working on her debut full-length with new band Gavin Jay (Jim Jones Revue/The Righteous Mind) on bass, and Ian White (Gallon Drunk) on drums. They played their debut performance at Liverpool Sound City 2016.

"It’s rare that a new artist comes along who genuinely defies easy description, but this is certainly the case with Stapleton. Her songs seem to inhabit the dark, intense corners of the soul in a manner not dissimilar to Nick Drake or even Elliott Smith, yet Stapleton’s guitar-playing is at once raw and tender, at times evoking the elemental spirit of Link Wray or ‘Sister’ era Sonic Youth... a bright new star in the ascendant."
- Louder Than War

"Like many of the best singers Stapleton has an unusual voice. Pervading all her singing is a huskiness that approaches Tom Waits territory, but beneath and supporting that is a supremely delicate and precise feel for the moment...like hearing Cat Power at her very best.“
- The AU Review

“Suzie Stapleton is a hard act to follow, I felt like a folk singer going on after Soundgarden. I think she is compelling listening and Melbourne’s best kept rock chick secret.”
- Spencer P Jones (Beasts of Bourbon)

“Suzie Stapleton doesn’t fuck around. Obladi Diablo’ has a Dirty Three and Nick Cave-like gritty Aussie folk quality to it; it breathes and broods and seethes and lives.”
- Milk Bar Mag

“The EP is an antidote to the insidious disease that is flaccid pop… There’s a depth of expression and passion on Obladi Diablo you don’t find in the ordinary record. Pop music… needs a serious prod from songwriters like Suzie Stapleton to remind it just what good music can sound like.”
