Austin native and pop-folk songstress Suzanna Choffel has announced the release of her upcoming third album, “Hello Goodbye” on Friday, May 12. There will be an official album release party that evening at 3TEN at Austin City Limits Live located at 310 W Willie Nelson Blvd. #1a, Austin, Texas 78701. Doors will be at 8 p.m. with the show starting at 9 p.m. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased here: https://www.ticketfly.com/purchase/event/1449126. For additional information, please see www.suzannachoffel.com.
Choffel’s new album is a beautiful blend of blues, folk, jazz, funk and rock. The soulfulness and conviction can be heard in her sultry voice as she sings about love, creation, passion and renewal. Her raw vocals sound just as luscious on the slow, intimate tracks as they do on the more upbeat, dance tracks.
“Side A is more low-key, sweet and soft, and side B is more of the funky dance tunes,” says Choffel. “As we laid out the tracks, I realized it kind of told a story — not intentionally, but that’s how it fits together. You want to take people on a journey.”
The album features David Boyle on keys, production and engineering, JJ Johnson on drums, Charlie Sexton and Andrew Trube on guitar, Brad Houser and Cat Popper on bass, Davìd Garza on vocals and guitars, and Jazz Mills and Michael Kingcaid on vocals.
"Suzanna has one of those voices that always stops me dead in my tracks from the first time I heard it,” says Charlie Sexton. “You know that who-is-that-awesome-voice scenario? And on top of that, the ability to write in cohesive varying styles even delivering familiar yet new melodic and musical writings. All these qualities are well represented on her new album. Viva Le Choffel."
