NOW PLAYING: A Baeble NEXT Session with Suzanne Santo

    Singer and multi-instrumentalist Suzanne Santo of HONEYHONEY recently released her debut solo album, Ruby Red, and when she was in town for a show at Rough Trade, we were lucky to have her make a pit stop at the Baeble Studio. During her time here, she performed a handful of songs off of the excellent record, including "The Wrong Man," "Better Than That," "Ghost In My Bed," and "Yours or Mine."

    Back in September, we premiered a live version of the album's lead single, "Handshake." I called it "riveting" and "heartbreaking" and after getting to experience it while sitting in the same room as Santo, I strongly stand by those claims. When Santo opened her mouth and began to sing, it wasn't exactly what we expected: a huge, expansive voice singing lyrics about getting wasted and the most epic heartbreaks. Not to mention, when she just simply talks, she has a very strong and lovable personality (and a sailor's mouth), which results in an interesting juxtaposition between herself and the music. Like I said months ago, it's absolutely riveting.
