“Suzie Vinnick is a unique talent; a triple threat singer/songwriter/guitarist. She is emotive, joyous and funky all in the same song." - Blues Blast Magazine
“Sometimes, when it comes to contemporary blues, it’s a good thing to challenge convention. Canadian singer/songwriter Suzie Vinnick plays with the standard modern forms delightfully on her new album, the utterly enjoyable Shake The Love Around…(vocally) her range is staggering. She has the kind of voice that you never get tired of hearing.” – Winnipeg Free Press
"....She’s truly blessed with a rare voice that’s playful, sassy and soulful….” – Holger Petersen, CBC’s Saturday Night Blues
