“SOMETIMES YOUR DREAMS FIND YOU”
OUT MAY 12TH
“GIVE” PREMIERED ON THE BOOT
Nashville, TN – Americana singer-songwriter and cardiologist, Suzie Brown, announces the release of her fifth full length, “Sometimes Your Dreams Find You” on May 12th. “Give” – the first track and Brown’s ode to the experience of becoming a mother, and all the triumphs and setbacks that come along with it – premiered this month on TheBoot.com, who raved about the singer’s “distinctive alto and irresistible medleys.”
On “Sometimes Your Dreams Find You,” Brown sings about reimagining your life’s path, and leaning into the unexpected turns. It’s a vivid, hopeful song, driven by stirring voice that has been compared to Patsy Cline and Patty Griffin. And the topic matter isn’t surprising considering Brown’s dual careers. In addition to being a working musician (alongside her husband, singer, songwriter and filmmaker, Scot Sax – who makes several appearances on the album) she is an Advanced Heart Failure and Transplant cardiologist at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville. She was tapped to speak at TEDMED in 2015 on this very subject: finding happiness in unexpected ways. Sax joined her onstage.
“Sometimes you don't know what's going to make you happy. You just have to be open to change and open to adjusting your dreams,” says Brown about what inspired the title track and theme of the album. “What you think you’ll want at a certain time isn't necessarily what you end up wanting later.”
The album kicks off with “All That Matters” – a quiet, yet urgent song about finding love and loving a life you never imagined. It segues neatly in to “This Much” – a sweet, lap steel-tinged lullaby imagining her infant daughter as a young adult. “Everything I Need Is Here” – features the voices of Suzie’s daughters and husband and celebrates the chaos and joyousness of life at home with small children. In the title track, the album’s themes of growing up and becoming a parent are praised when Brown gently declares; “you start living when you stop keeping score. ”
This summer, Brown and Sax will hit the road to celebrate the release of “Sometimes Your Dreams Find You.” They plan to perform in their current home of Nashville, the town where they met, Philadelphia and in Suzie’s old stomping ground of Boston, among other select dates.
