From an early age Sue-Anne was exposed to music and taught guitar by her father, a man that has been a huge inspiration in her life. Ever since then writing songs and playing music is where Stewart has found her home. Drawing from a nomadic upbringing and her love of nature, her songs are personal and have developed into a powerful fusion of roots and folk that really highlights her strength in song writing.
The past decade has been a journey in discovering where she sits with her style of music.’Gypsy Blood’, Stewart’s sophomore album was released in 2013, and has painted a picture of exactly where she finds herself most comfortable. This is reflected in the feel-good vibes and love of life that is expressed with honesty, in her first single ‘Love Gets Sweeter’. The single was placed in the top 10 of the AirIt Charts for four consecutive weeks and has garnered significant airplay Australia wide. The single was also featured on the hit channel 7 T.V show ‘Winner and Losers.
Recently nominated in the finals of the Queensland Music Awards, for her song ‘Saviour’, in the Folk/Singer song writer category 2015.‘Saviour’ is an up beat recollection of her time on the road touring America and is also featured on her latest album ‘Gypsy Blood’. The positive reactions to Sue-Anne’s music highlights her ability in writing lyrics that are relatable and can be interpreted by her audiences on an intimate level.
