Saxon Pub

Known for her distinct voice and reggae-inspired guitar technique, Austin native Suzanna Choffel's music has been described as "a unique sound equal parts Beat poetry, smoky soul grooves and indie-pop eccentricity." (Jim Derogatis). Having made appearances at ACL Music Fest, SXSW, Voodoo Fest, as well as on screen in movies like "Catfish" and NBC's The Voice (earning singular praise from Rolling Stone as "the only artist you'd want to listen to a complete album from"), Choffel feels equally at home singing in a dimly lit club as she does front and center in front of (literally) millions.

Over the course of her two decade career Choffel has shared the stage with a diverse array of artists like Buena Vista Social Club, Suzanne Vega, Crystal Gayle, Solange, Norah Jones & more. She has toured across the US & throughout France & the UK, recorded and released three studio albums and is releasing her fourth album Bird by Bird in 2024, produced by longtime collaborator & friend, Grammy-award winning Davíd Garza (Fiona Apple). The album was recorded in Los Angeles & Tornillo, TX (Sonic Ranch) and is a collection of new songs written somewhere between new motherhood and a pandemic.
