Suzanne Santo will kick off the beginning of her 2022 tour on January 28th with a show in Denver, followed by shows in Seattle, Portland, Phoenix, Nashville, and more. See below for a complete list of venues and tour dates.

In August 2021, the Austin, Texas based Santo released her latest album, Yard Sale, via Soundly Music and produced by John Spiker. She wrote the album’s 12 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.

Yard Sale 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.

A tireless creator, Santo, who logged a decade as a member of Los Angeles based duo HoneyHoney, has built her sound in the grey area between Americana, Southern gothic soul, and forward thinking rock & roll. It’s a sound that nods to her past a childhood spent in the Rust Belt, which is also where she learned to love a yard sale.

The Cleveland, Ohio born artist’s creative output also extends to the screen, having had acting roles in several series and features. With Yard Sale, Santo boldly moves forward, staking her claim once again as an Americana innovator. It’s an album inspired by the past, written by an artist who’s only interested in the here and now. And for Suzanne Santo, the here and now sounds pretty good.
