About Suzy Easton:
Suzy is a 35 year old musician born and raised in Vancouver, BC who recently moved back to the Lower Mainland after testing the waters all across Canada – www.suzyonthemove.com – and more recently, in Tofino and Chilliwack.
Historically, her father’s side moved to Vancouver in 1896 from Glasgow, Scotland, and later became influenced by left-wing politics. Through her great aunt Mary, Suzy’s great uncle-in-law was Jack Nichol, a former union leader in British Columbia for some tens of thousands of fishermen. Suzy’s mom’s side has a long history in San Francisco, with her grandpa being a former mayor of Menlo Park, now home of Facebook.
Suzy’s older brother, Sam Easton, is a professional stand up comedian who stars in the web mini-series “Who Is Jimmy The Bag?”. As well, her older step-brother, Fraser Snelgrove, raps in the theme music for The Bag and co-runs a hat company called The Nine O’Clock Gun Company.
Back to Suzy, she formerly toured as a professional bassist, recording a full length album with Steve Albini in 2009. In the past, she has performed in local Vancouver bands that include Seafoam, The Last Remnants, Les Metronomiques and The Smokes/Minto. More recently Suzy has been playing electric guitar, building guitar pedals and is immersing herself in programming and mobile app development for the creative sector.
In June 2012, not long after completing a music technology certificate from Douglas College, Suzy launched an online business offering music transcription. She sent transcriptions to clients in the UK and Germany based on whatever music they sent to her.
In February 2013, Suzy decided to rent out a commercial music studio to create space that would promote her artistic growth as a music technologist but found herself unable to afford rent and subsequently moved out.
In September 2013, with a website, Suzy Priceless Music was relaunched as Suzy Easton Multimedia Services. The goal was to assist individuals in publishing online content, but she found herself building this music blog instead.
Suzy hopes this digital publication presents things in a unique and humanistic way, thank you for dropping by and be stoked for the things to come.
