Suai's music has taken her to some pretty notable places. You may have seen her on BET's Baldwin Hills and Black College Tour Specials, ABC Family's Lincoln Heights, gracing the pages of Essence, VIBE and GIANT magazines or sharing stages around the country with Solange, Estelle, and to name a few.
As exciting as these accomplishments are, they pale in comparison to the next chapter of her story.
At age 19, Suai's piano/guitar/vocal chops caught the attention of music industry veteran and president of Universal Motown Records Group, . Signed to the label within months of their first meeting, Suai spent her time at Motown, under Ms. Rhone's close supervision, learning the ropes of being a recording artist; honing her writing, recording and performance skills.
Now, Suai has taken the reigns and after many years of studying her craft, she's ready to release her debut album, Almost Wrote You A . After surviving a few battles with love, Suai is ready to talk about it. The album deals with the inner workings of love & relationships. New love, old love, can't let go love; Suai write and sings about it all.
Her songwriting and production skills shine on tracks like "Stupid Face" and "Safe". She even shows a not often seen, tough exterior on the soon to be women's anthem, "B.Y.S.U." and the struggling artist's mantra, "Just Work (Music On The Side)". Not one to disguise her feelings, Suai completely changes gears, revealing a sweet vulnerability on "16 Again" and the Lauryn Hill inspired, "All I Know Is Him". Listening to the album will awaken a dormant heart, reminding it of all the emotions it ever felt about someone... the good, the bad and the unresolved.
The phrase "everything happens for a reason" resonates with Suai because had she not experienced and seen so much both personally and professionally, her artistry wouldn't be at the level it is today. She's thankful for her supporters who, after years of waiting for an album release, are still in her corner. Suai wants to share her story and her music with the world. She can often be heard saying or tweeting, "I'm in love… with my journey." The release of Almost Wrote You A Love Song is the next step in the journey. Will you be joining her?
