Hear Suzanne Santo At The Top Of Her Game On New Album “Yard Sale”

August 30, 2021 – Austin, TX – Suzanne Santo‘s brand new album, Yard Sale, delves into the ideas of discarding wants, sentimental treasures, largely in the form of people and places that have lost meaning or are no longer of service—letting things fall away to make space for better things to come. Austin, Texas-based songwriter, singer, and multi-instrumentalist Santo wrote Yard Sale’s twelve songs between a farmhouse on the Irish coast, long bus rides, backstage writing sessions, and hotel stays—all during a world tour with Hozier, of which Santo was an opening act and a member of the headliner’s band. Fans will likely also know Santo from her work in musical duo Honeyhoney, but after one last gig with Hozier at Glastonbury, she was eager to get back to her solo career and headed straight to Los Angeles to begin working with co-producer John Spiker on what would become Yard Sale. 

The resulting album presents Santo at the very top of her game musically, writing her own string arrangements and singing each song in an agile, acrobatic voice—perhaps in part due to the cathartic making-of process and what that has meant for her professionally and personally. At times she bridges the gap between indie-rock and neo-soul. On other tracks, she mixes gospel influences with a deconstructed R&B beat. Fans will hear layers of spacey, atmospheric electric guitar and Shakey Graves on a rainy-day ballad driven forward by a metronomic drum pattern, and Gary Clark Jr. punctuating with fiery fretwork.

Fans can stream or purchase Yard Sale now at this link and see a full list of tour dates below, including tour stops in support of Jade Bird, Murder By Death, Son Little, and the aforementioned Gary Clark Jr.
