ALEXIS P SUTER

Blues Music Awards nominations, 2017, 2015 and 2013. Big, booming voice fronting powerful band artfully blending the lines between Blues, Soul, Roots and Rock music, captivating audiences from town to town.  “...It’s a rare thing to share the stage with great talent like that young lady.” - BB King

 

When the great Bluesman B.B. King first heard Alexis P Suter sing, he was visibly impressed and said so after her opening set for him at BB Kings in NYC. Shaking his head in wonder, in his characteristic way, he remarked,

“...It’s a rare thing to share the stage with great talent like that young lady.”


Alexis has earned similar honors from other well-known musicians and performers including Dan Aykroyd and Levon Helm of The Band.

 

She is the owner of that big, booming voice you can hear roaring out of Brooklyn into the heart of North America and beyond.  Alexis P. and her band are on the rise as accolades pour in and they continue to captivate audiences from town to town.  


Miss Suter and her powerful and unique ensemble artfully blend the lines between Blues, Soul, Roots and Rock music. Alexis' voice ranges from a pained passion to explosive and soul bearing. 

Her newest album, Be Love, hit the streets on March 18th (2019) and has received excellent reviews and airplay in both the Blues and Americana/Roots communities.


Alexis burst on to the music scene as a regular performer at Levon Helm’s legendary Midnight Rambles held in Woodstock, NY. Levon was captured by what he called Alexis’ wonderful spirit and had her and the band open for him nearly 100 times.


As special guest openers for The Levon Helm Band, they played to sold-out audiences at the Beacon Theater, Bethel Woods Center For The Arts, The Paramount Theatre in Asbury Park, NJ and Central Park’s Summerstage.

Since then, APSB continue to be in high demand at North American Roots and Blues festivals, venues and events. They were privileged enough to open for BB King several times, as well as Etta James, at BB's club in New York.

In addition to being a featured artist in over 50 Blues and Roots festivals nationwide, Alexis and her band have been the opening act for the following artists: Bo Diddley, Trombone Shorty, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Dickey Betts, Coco Montoya, Buddy Guy, Allen Touissaint, Emmylou Harris, Johnny Winter, Elvis Costello and for the 20 year reunion of the Muddy Waters Band.
