Sue Decker’s soulful voice and slide guitar hold the listener gently while travelling through territory that is beautiful and earthy, sometimes dark, and always life-giving. She writes songs that embody the spirit of early blues, folk, bluegrass and country music and she’s just as likely to meet her muse in Rumi’s poetry, Emily Carr’s painting, or in a Bessie Smith record. Sue followed the release of her first EP–Live at the Duncan Showroom–with a single studio recording “Love Never Follows the Rules” in September 2017. Plans for a full studio recording in 2018 are underway. On stage, Sue crea...more info
